Over the past few months, SMMA | Symmes Maini and McKee Associates is honored to have participated in several green building events around the Commonwealth as well as helping to elevate and promote current best design and building practices.
A few of the more notable happenings include joining forces with the USGBC MA Chapter to become Education Partners responsible for helping create national education content. As part of this strategic partnership, SMMA was asked to provide an in-depth overture of their LEED v4 for Schools presentation at the NESEA Building Energy 15 conference. The content of this presentation will soon turn into a national webinar for the Education Partner Program and will be available on-demand through the USGBC Education website.
Additionally, SMMA has recently submitted one of the firm’s more prominent K-12 public school projects, Winchester High School, into the LEED design review. The school showcases an array of sustainability features and has benefited from the guidance of both SMMA and the Town of Winchester’s Sustainability Sub-Committee.
