On May 11, 2015, the Residential Green Building Committee had the pleasure of hosting David Queeley, Sustainability Fellow At Codman Square Development Company. Queeley informed the group of his strategy and efforts to get Talbot Norfolk Triangle, (TNT) in Boston designed as an Eco District. Queeley currently works on behalf of Codman Square Development Company, where the company focuses on developing safe, sustainable, and affordable structures in Codman Square and South Dorchester.
The Talbot Norfolk Triangle Eco-Innovation District uses LEED ND as a set of guiding principles to comprehensively integrate transit oriented development, renewable energy, water conservation, sustainable energy, waste reduction, and energy efficiency into neighborhood planning. The development has garnered much positive attention, as it is an attempt to use sustainable practices advocated by LEED ND to improve underprivileged neighborhoods dealing with gentrification. The Eco-Innovation District also features other green energy initiatives to create local jobs.

Once again, a big thank you to David for educating us on his sustainability initiatives that are greatly improving our community!!!
