August 16, 2010 | Betsy Kraat | New Jersey & Company

"From Dubai to Chicago, innovative, sustainable architecture is changing the landscape of the construction industry -- literally.

Super-green, super-sized projects are a reality today -- spanning city blocks, stretching across city limits, and creating fully sustainable mega-buildings for healthier, environmentally friendly, and economical living. McGraw-Hill Construction's Architectural Record and GreenSource are bringing together leading architects, engineers, construction professionals, and sustainability experts at the 8th annual Innovation 2010 Conference in New York City on October 6-7, an event that is sure to pave the way for future green building innovations.

Focused on "Big and Super-Green: From Buildings to Cityscapes," the two-day conference will address the latest technical developments and strategies for large-scale green building, featuring case studies from Dubai's Burj Khalifa, South Korea's New Songdo City, Chicago's Decarbonization Plan, Canada's Manitoba Hydro Place, Be-Bionic City Tower, and more. A new pre-conference workshop, moderated by Stephen Jones, senior director at McGraw-Hill Construction, invites attendees to gain hands-on experience using building information modeling (BIM) with lean, green practices to directly benefit their businesses.

...Other distinguished speakers include:
-- Thomas Auer, Managing Director and Partner, Transsolar
-- Bruce Kuwabara, Founding Partner, Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects"
