With the 2017 Annual Green Building Showcase coming up on June 15th, we want to look back and reflect on our past achievements. In 2015, we changed the name of the annual event from the LEED Building Showcase to the Green Building Showcase we all know it as today in order to welcome all building certifications like WELL or the Living Building Challenge.
Our Green Building Showcase from 2015 was such a memorable night of celebrating our community! Over 150 people and 45 project boards filled at our 2015 Showcase hosted at Harvard's LEED Gold art museum facility at 32 Quincy Street – the Calderwood Courtyard.
We are always impressed with the award winners each and every year! In 2015, Architerra won the Innovation in Green Design award, for the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife Headquarters in Westborough MA. This was an outstanding net-zero energy building that to this day demonstrates the Commonwealth's commitment to these better buildings. The big Green Building of the Year Award went to The Green Engineer for their work on the Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary in Boylston MA.
We hope to see everyone that is a part of our community on June 15th at Northeastern University's ISEC building for the biggest Showcase yet!
