On August 7, I had the pleasure of attending the USGBC National Captial Region's annual event, a Midsummer Night's Green. This year, the event was held in the stunning World Bank Atrium. Tyler Coffey of Sigal Construction did a great job choosing the venue and organizing the event.
Bisnow on Business has a good summary of the award winners from the event:
Winners assembled on stage: Nationals Park won for best large project; PN Hoffman's Alta condo for best medium project; a yoga studio in Clark County, Va., for best small project; Tower Companies for member firm of the year in the client category (ie, the ones who decide about green goals) and SmithGroup in the consultant category (the ones who implement); the Pentagon library renovation for best federal project; the Chesapeake Bay Foundation headquarters in Annapolis for best legacy; and consultant Paul Tseng for individual member of the year.
Whenever I attend events like these, I am reminded just how long some people have been involved with green building. It was quite an impressive crew.
