This recognition for our association will bring real awareness to the green practices already in use by modular builders.”

MBI demonstrates the dedication of it and its members to greener, faster, smarter, building each year at its World of Modular convention and tradeshow, which is to be held in Las Vegas in March 2015. MBI is also excited to again take part in this year’s Greenbuild Expo, USGBC’s annual tradeshow.
