A Great Night for Green Building

The eleven finalists saved 30 million gallons of water, 25 million kilowatt hours of electricity, and affected 14 million square feet of property in existing buildings—that was the hard part. On Monday night they came from as far as Los Angeles, Austin, Boston, Miami and Pittsburgh to be celebrated for those incredible achievements, and to find who would be taking home a coveted EBie award that evening.

Schools, affordable housing, office buildings, and even the home of the California EPA were among the winning projects this year, spearheaded by individuals ranging from building managers to schoolteachers. “It’s really inspiring to see such a high quality of work and commitment going into supportive housing, especially for seniors,” said Dana Bourland of JPB Foundation as she discussed the work of Power to the People finalist Stephen Post for his winning project at Jack Satter House.
