Garthwaite Center Chosen One of Top Ten Green Projects of the Year
The Cambridge School of Weston announced today that the Garthwaite Center for Science and Art has been chosen by the American Institute of Architects' Committee on the Environment as one of the nation's Top Ten Green Projects of the year. Every year, the committee selects the top 10 examples of sustainable architecture and green design solutions that protect and enhance the environment. This year's top projects, only two of which reside in Massachusetts, were honored at the AIA 2008 National Convention and Design Exposition at Boston's Artists for Humanity EpiCenter in Boston. The 21,000-square-foot educational facility houses science laboratories, classrooms and community galleries, as well as administrative and faculty offices. The state-of-the-art facility was designed to LEED Platinum standards by Architerra Inc. of Boston, and built by Consigli Construction Co., Inc. of Milford, MA.
