Black Friday means shopping for some, but Green Monday is savings for everyone. Join us on the Monday after Thanksgiving – November 26th at 7:00 pm at the Library Community Room for “Better by Design – energy efficiency in Needham’s public construction projects“.
Learn how reducing energy use and using energy as efficiently as possible is built into our public buildings from initial conception and design through construction and operation.
Architects from the design firms and project managers from Needham’s Public Facilities Construction Division will take us on a tour of some of Needham’s recent building projects:
- Rick Rice from DiNisco Design Partnership, Project Architect for the High Rock School
- Mike Fields, from Winter Street Architects, Project Architect for the innovative Public Services Administration Building, one of the first public buildings to be heated and cooled with geothermal heat pump technology
- Hank Haff, LEED Accredited Professional and Project Manager for Needham’s Public Construction Division
“Better by Design” not only contributes to the “on time and on budget” performance we have come to expect, it also reduces our use of fossil fuels, contributing to a cleaner environment and keeping more dollars in the local economy and reduces operational costs, saving money for years to come.
