FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

US Green Building Council Massachusetts Chapter Announces Location for Annual Green Building Showcase

[Boston, April 26th, 2017] The US Green Building Council Massachusetts Chapter has formally announced the date and location of the annual Green Building Showcase, an evening celebration that highlights building excellence across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. On June 15th, the Annual Green Building Showcase will be held at Northeastern University’s Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC), a venue designed by Payette and tracking LEED Platinum certification.

The ISEC has 220,000 SF of academic space designed with laboratories designed for pharmaceutical discovery, robotics, and security research. The building is a marvel of water and energy efficiency through a variety of Passive House, solar, and high tech design elements. To commemorate the ISEC’s open, Mayor of Boston Martin J. Walsh articulated “I urge developers in our city to shoot for this world-class design, to match our world-class innovation in this city.” The ISEC’s interdisciplinary approach will be a great leap forward in the potential synergy and convergence between different fields of science and engineering.

The Annual Green Building Showcase will feature and award prominent buildings for their devotion to sustainable features, such as resilience, energy conservation, and beauty. The highlighted buildings represent firms from across the state, and embody the pinnacle of green building practices. The highest award is ‘Green Building of the Year,’ which last year was awarded to Elkus Manfredi for the New Balance Headquarters design.

This year, the Green Building Showcase will feature over 100 project boards, and will have over 300 industry leaders in attendance. Attendees include architects, engineers, contractors, developers, owners, facility managers building users, lenders, suppliers, and sustainability enthusiasts.
The USGBC Massachusetts Chapter is a membership-based community advocating for green buildings at the state and local level. The USGBC MA Chapter provides green building education, networking, advocacy and leadership opportunities for the sustainable building practitioner community and beyond. Our events and programming are supported and enhanced by the volunteer efforts of our community members.

The boys that join Scouting are looking for fun and adventure and in the meantime they are growing as individuals preparing to be leaders among their peers. I am glad that we can support them in their journey.”

Mabbett. “I understand and value, first hand, the hard work and persistence that each Scout has demonstrated to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. I know these young Eagle Scouts will take the Boy Scout experience with them throughout their life and will become our future leaders. I congratulate them on their success and also their parents and adult leaders for their efforts and assistance.”

As stated on the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) website, “The BSA is one of the nations’ largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness. For more than 100 years, the BSA has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.
