What are the new trends in Green Building design and construction?

There is definitely a strong movement toward green construction and design. The major associations and trade magazines in construction all indicate that 2010 and 2011 and on through to 2015 will be a slow time for construction in general, but the one bright hope is the upgrading of existing buildings and new buildings needing to offer green and sustainable design and construction practices (LEED). There is a hugh growth market in this unique space during these tough times for designers and contractors.
