Practicing what they preach, the commercial office property utilizes green practices in lighting, waste management, and promoting transportation alternatives, achieving LEED Certification in 2016 and receiving Energy Star Certification since 2012.

    Nominate your green building project:

Environmental, economic, and social impact on local, regional, national, or international scales will also be considered. Nominations are being accepted for projects, organizations, or individuals from any sector in the Delaware Valley (view map of DVGBC area). Projects can be new construction or renovation, but must be completed within the past three years.
