Energy prices and technologies have changed – your building systems should too.
USGBC has announced that it will now include an inclusive design pilot credit for the LEED rating system. The intrinsic connection between green building, health, and accessibility is what led SWA to propose this credit back in 2017. We are excited and proud of our contribution toward improving the LEED program with a more holistic approach to building design and construction.
New York’s Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village, the largest rental apartment complex in the US, is the first in New York State to earn the LEED for Communities certification. Steven Winter Associates led the certification process for this landmark accomplishment, which earned a LEED Platinum rating.
Green Building United is hosting a highly interactive training session with emphasis on architectural elements of the code in Section C402 along with building science principles and low energy design concepts. SWA's Director of Multifamily Energy Services, Ryan Merkin, is facilitating the training.
