We are pleased, and proud, to announce that the Northampton Senior Center has received Silver level, LEED certification from the US Green Building Council. This is the first publicly funded building in western Massachusetts to receive LEED certification for new construction. It is also one of only five municipal buildings in the Commonwealth to achieve this level of certification. Kudos, thanks and praise, to Jacquie Scott our resident LEED AP who served as project manager throughout and led the certification process. Much of the process was done online and in retrospect it really wasn't as bad as people describe. Alot of projects claim to follow LEED guidelines but very few clients are willing to foot the bill to get actual certification. Thanks to city of Northampton for its continuing commitment to talk the talk and walk the walk when it comes to sustainability.
