Happy Earth Day
April 22, 2008
In honor of Earth Day, we wanted to share our latest!
March was an exciting month for GreenBridge Architects – as part of our ongoing commitment to high-performance and sustainable building and design, Juli MacDonald, AIA, principal of GreenBridge, became a LEED accredited professional, or LEED-AP. The accreditation process involved months of study and a rigorous exam. Congratulations Juli!!
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a third party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. The role of the LEED-AP is to guide the project team through the certification process and to assist in the design of the building from the earliest phases using sustainable design and building practices. Juli’s dedication to these principles is an integral part of her design process, and her achievement is a testament to her dedication and knowledge.
The Unites States Green Building Council, who administers LEED, has just begun to certify homes through their LEED-H program and has also partnered with the American Society of Interior Designers’ Foundation to launch REGREEN, the nation’s first residential remodeling guidelines.
