GreenSource Magazine


GreenSource magazine was a trade publication that targeted architects, builders, and designers who were interested in eco-friendly solutions for commercial and residential buildings. The magazine provided readers with information on sustainable design and construction practices.


GreenSource magazine was first published in 2006 as a supplement to Building Design + Construction magazine, which was owned by McGraw-Hill Construction. In 2007, it became a standalone publication.

The magazine also featured case studies of green building projects, showcasing various sustainable design and construction practices.

GreenSource magazine provided readers with expert analyses of green building products and technologies. The magazine also had regular sections on industry news, policy updates, and events related to sustainable design.
