The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society at Dartmouth College was declared “Market Leader – Energy and Water Efficiency” at the Green Building Showcase + Awards Show by the U.S. Green Building Council Massachusetts. The award celebrates industry success and innovation.
Judges Jennifer Preston, Greg Mella and Shawn Hesse said about the project, “The Irving Institute demonstrates the art and science of sustainable design. It is contextual, responding both to its place and interacting with the natural systems around it, resulting in resource conservation and promoting occupant wellbeing. The building breaths! What really made this project stand out is that the design addresses operational and embodied carbon, demonstrating the importance of each as we shift towards a carbon-free future.”
Transsolar worked on this project, which is expected to be ready for occupancy by the fall term of 2021, with Goody Clancy.
