On July 16th, the U. S. Green Building Council (USGBC) North Texas Chapter, the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) Dallas Chapter, and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Dallas Committee on the Environment (COTE) joined together to host its second annual showcase of the latest green building products and technologies for commercial and residential use.  This year’s Sustainable Showcase was held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum near Love Field.  Over 300 attendees, plus another 170 vendors and volunteers joined together in the museum’s main hangar with the collection of vintage planes as the backdrop to the exhibitor’s booths.  In fact, Sunrise Solar brought a small wind turbine that blended into the fuselage of a nearby plane so well that one had to question whether the turbine was a part of the sustainable showcase or a part of aviation history.
