Florida Green Building Coalition Partners with SEBC in 2021

ORLANDO, Fla.  – The Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) and the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) have announced a partnership for the fifth consecutive year to promote attendance, exhibiting and education at the annual show.

Celebrating its 41st year, SEBC will be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Fla., July 15-16. Last year’s event was a held virtually.

With a goal of education, verified third-party green certifications and advocacy since being founded in 2000, FGBC is by far the largest certifier of green homes, residential communities, high-rises, local governments, and commercial buildings in the state with over 25,000.

“This is a great opportunity to showcase our state’s leadership in promoting and building green. SEBC continues to grow and be a must attend event for decision makers in the residential construction industry and suppliers for builders and developers,” said FBC President Bill Kachman.

SEBC is proud to showcase an expansive expo hall and again host its BEX Event – an exclusive one-on-one event where Builders and Exhibitors Exchange ideas, proposals, and contacts to further their success in the industry.

Various educational and professional CEU courses are offered at SEBC. Presented by a virtual Who’s Who of the nation’s home building industry, the line-up covers all the important topics – quality construction practices, remodeling, design, sales and marketing, customer service and business management, just to name a few.

Classes are divided into intensive, day-long courses and specialized seminars on the industry’s most timely topics.

FGBC will be offering classes on green building. FGBC’s certifications provide pathways to build green homes, developments, local governments, high rises, and commercial buildings.

Two decades ago, FGBC brought together industry professionals from the construction, government, academic and research communities to create green standards tailored specifically to Florida. Beyond third party certifications, FGBC is also a resource for the builders, developers, contractors, architects, and municipalities when considering going green.

“Florida Green” standards take a scientific approach and are developed with state-specific criteria.  They address Florida’s hot-humid environment, climate, distinctive topography, unique geology, resiliency, and natural disasters.
