Gilcrest/Jewett Sponsors COSC Workshop (April 2007) — 
For the second year, Gilcrest/Jewett was one of three sponsors of the “Building a Sustainable Iowa” workshop. This workshop is for residential building professionals and homeowners covering various aspects of residential sustainable building. This year, our own Brad Schulte and Doug Niblo presented at the workshop telling attendees about just a few of our green products as well as examples of how some of our suppliers operate green.

Center on Sustainable Communities (COSC) hosts this workshop. Their initiatives encourage a future where energy-efficient, resource conscious, better built, healthier homes are the norm not the exception. COSC promotes residential green building in Iowa to encourage homeowners and building professionals to embrace conscientious building practices that create sustainable neighborhoods. COSC serves as a resource for education and provides a broad network of local and green building professionals; a local connection to suppliers of green building products; a sample showroom of green building products; and a local schedule of green building seminars and workshops.

Gilcrest/Jewett Lumber Company is a member of the COSC which gives us access to a trusted green building resource, access to product research and green building events featuring local and national speakers. This membership will assist us by not only being a leading supplier of green building products, but keeping us well-educated on green trends, practical products and solutions to build green. As the country continues to live more “green”, we will continue our education for ourselves as well as to arm our customers! Waukee Sales Representative, Doug Niblo, is on the COSC Advisory Council representing the supplier side of building green. He has a passion for the “green movement” and is excited to be on the front lines learning about building green and, in turn, educating the rest of us at Gilcrest/Jewett.
