utilizes natural lighting and green technologies, including rainwater
collection, a super-insulated envelope, greywater system, and
photovoltaic array. At the close of Greenbuild, the green cabin will
be included in a traveling road show.
Building Design+Construction's "Pedia-Pod" pediatric treatment module
is designed and constructed by NRB, Ephrata, Pa. The "kid-friendly"
14-foot by 42-foot module showcases a range of interior finishes, a
specialized bathroom, treatment/recovery area, medical staff
workstation and a waiting room/play area. Integrated are a number of
design principles, practices and products that could make it worthy
