School ï¬?eldhouse rewarded for net-zero designMaclay Architects, Waitsfield, Vt., received top honors in Vermont’s 2010 Better Buildings by Design Conference for the net-zero-energy design of a new $5.1 million fieldhouse at the Putney School, a college preparatory boarding school in southern Vermont.
