iGreenBuild’s Top 10 Premier Green Buildings

Thanks to everyone who submitted nominations for our inaugural iGreenBuild Top 10 Premier Green Buildings Contest. While every nominee deserves recognition for their innovative use of sustainable materials, their commitment to energy efficiency and preservation of natural resources, and in many cases their focus on building with a purpose, these 10 stand out. Here are our picks for the Top 10 Premier Green Buildings. Each twitter nominator will receive a copy of the book Leading With Marketing, by Brian Gallagher and Kimberly Kayler.
