EEBA Gathers Like-Minded Building Pros

Dec. 5, 2017

At the 2017 Energy & Environmental Building Alliance High Performance Home Summit in Atlanta, building professionals gathered to share information on the latest trends and technology.

DuPont has been involved with EEBA since it was founded in 1982, and Laura Dwyer, global manager of DuPont's Building Knowledge Center, said the company continues to find value in being a part of the organization.

As the organization continues to evolve to meet the needs of the industry, the value to manufacturers and builders remains the same: the value of networking with professionals who desire to create energy-efficient and sustainable structures, said Dwyer, a member of the EEBA Executive Committee.
