David Bliss, AIA and LEED BD+C, is a Senior Project Manager at Simpson Gumpertz and Heger (SGH) where he helps clients solve problems through his work in design and rehabilitation of new and existing buildings.
He has been involved in the Chapter for about 5 years. As a member of the (now retired) Regional and Statewide Outreach Committee (RaSOC), he developed maps and associated lists of our energy sources and environmental organizations and contributed to the establishment of chapters in Western Massachusetts and Worcester. About a year ago he decided to join the Advocacy Committee and soon volunteered to fill the open role of secretary. He proceeded to delve into proposed legislation on revenue neutral carbon fees and net metering.
The USGBC-MA has enriched his understanding of green building issues from the perspectives of the varied professional backgrounds of other members. It is a great forum for networking with other green building professionals where he enjoys both the work and contagious enthusiasm he finds at chapter events.
