"Innovation in Green Design" Award, Honorable Mention

from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)

The Saint Polycarp Village Apartments is a mixed-use development that offers 24 affordable apartments, 3 ground-level retail spaces, and a public landscaped outdoor space on a decomissioned church site. The building recently received LEED-NC Silver Certification, an accomplishment that verifies the high level of sustainability targeted by the team. Results from energy modeling and testing of the completed building show that the building uses less than half of the energy of other newly constructed buildings.

The Saint Polycarp Village Apartments received an Honorable Mention in the "Best Project" category. The award was presented at the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter's Annual Earth Day Party where over 100 Chapter members were in attendance.
