The seventh annual Building Industry Association Remodel It Right, Remodel It Green Expo, held Friday through Sunday at the Hawaii Convention Center attracted a crowd of 7,696,  down 7 percent from 8,297 in 2010.

The top categories of interest were photovoltaics, kitchens and bathrooms, followed by windows, Energy Star appliances and green products that save people money with lower utility bills, rebates and tax credits.

“Since approximately 60 percent of Oahu homes are more than 50 years old and could benefit from a remodeling project, we are very committed to this building industry consumer event that is designed to educate homeowners in a collaborative environment,” BIA-Hawaii CEO Karen Nakamura said. 

Chartered in 1955, BIA is a professional trade organization affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders, representing the building industry and its associates. The 500 members of BIA-Hawaii are developers, contractors, suppliers, Realtors, architects, financial institutions and a host of other professionals who serve the building industry.
