The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is pleased to announce the launch of its new website at www.ecobuilding.org. The website not only provides added value for members, but is a centralized and easy to navigate place for industry professionals and the public alike to quickly find the resources they need when undertaking sustainable building projects in the Pacific Northwest.

The website was built by Seattle-based Groundwire using Plone, an open source content management system, and was integrated with a customized Salesforce database. These systems together provide the Guild with the robust platform it needs to not only create an online community of shared sustainable building insights and solutions, but also grow over time to meet the increased interest in green building.

Since its inception in 1993, the Guild has experienced exceptional growth in membership, and now has seven active Chapters across the Pacific Northwest. "Our members, many of which are leading industry experts, are the beating heart of this organization. This website reflects our commitment to meeting their needs and supporting their work” says Guild President Fiona Douglas-Hamilton.

Guild members can now quickly and easily post their own events, workshops or classes on the Guild's Events Calendar, highlight the details of their work in the Green Building Project Spotlights collection, and submit industry-related articles they author for online publication. Site visitors will have access to a wealth of regularly updated, relevant information from builders, designers, subcontractors, real estate professionals, suppliers and others who are out in the field every day, and actively evolving this industry.

Stay tuned as the Guild gets ready to launch an exciting line up of new educational programs on its website in 2011, including the Guild Green Tours and a catalog of green building classes and workshops.
