Green Building Technology Demonstration in Buffalo

BUFFALO, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2011) -

Attention Business, Technology, Green Building Construction Editors:

Area builders and architects will get a close-up look at a construction technology that dramatically reduces energy costs, improves indoor air quality, ensures maximum fire safety AND is more environmentally-friendly than conventional building techniques.

The Buffalo/WNY Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the New York Upstate Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council have invited Canadian firm Amvic Building System to demonstrate its insulated concrete forms (ICFs) which are being recognized as a superior alternative to traditional masonry block, especially given Buffalo's extreme weather conditions.

Amvic and a number of other green building technologies will be showcased at the event, and the media are invited to attend:

Where: Hyatt Regency Buffalo
  2 Fountain Plaza
  Buffalo, NY
When: Thursday, February 17, 2011
  starts 8:30 a.m. 
  Amvic presentation at 10 a.m.

"Sharing information and exploring innovations in the green building industry is of great value and importance to the U.S. Green Building Council New York Upstate Chapter," said Executive Director, Tracie Hall. "We are honored to host our Canadian partners in the green building sector for these educational sessions. Sustainability knows no borders. This is an opportunity to learn and explore how we can work together for the benefit of the people, the planet, and yes, profit margins."

Media are welcome. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please confirm if you plan to attend. Paul Camozzi from Amvic Building System is available for media interviews before or at the event.
