Weston Solutions were true visionaries to be able to turn this blighted property – on a brownfields site – into the site of a LEED-certified building to be proud of. During the construction of the building, students at NHTI’s Architectural Engineering Technologies program were able to experience design and construction in a real-life situation, and Weston Employees were included in the entire process.
The building is close to walking and biking trails, as well as bus service (local and beyond) and visiting employees stay in the nearby hotel so that vehicles are not necessary. The building itself has many “green” features, including a real-time energy monitor in the lobby and a green roof garden.
The jury found this project to be an “innovative, environmentally thoughtful design on a brownfields site.” In addition, the “project reinforces the successful redevelopment of a mixed use urban location.”
