The Go-Green Assistance Center remodeled a space at the International Technology, Education and Commerce Center (ITECC) in May 2009.

Building this project took around two months, and architects, the Community Development Corporation of Brownsville, designers, and the UTB faculty and staff helped with this project. Many other companies and organizations were an important part of creating the center and its interactive and comprehensive green displays.
