SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) - GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. ("GreenHouse") (OTCBB: GRHU) announced today that it has been awarded a $151 million contract for the design, development and construction of the Carlstrom National Security Training Center ("Carlstrom") in Central Florida. The contract was awarded to GreenHouse's wholly-owned subsidiary, Life Protection, Inc., by the Pinnacle Performance Group, the executive director for the development team.

GreenHouse assists in providing us the opportunity to attain these core competencies. The combined efforts of GreenHouse and our advisory staff, along with local, state and national law enforcement personnel, create a synergy to develop a world class training facility."
