Congratulations to Senior Property Manager Lisa Mitchell and her team! 355 Alhambra (Coral Gables) has been named a finalist for the Most Outstanding LEED EB:OM (Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance) Project Award.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) South Florida Chapter has announced the Finalist Nominees for the nonprofit organization’s upcoming GalaVerde, its 2015 LEEDership and Green Awards Program.
GalaVerde awards finalists (as well as eventual winners) were selected by a panel of industry experts from around the country. Submissions were sent to the judges “blind,” without any identification of project or team or LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) achievement. Submissions were judged purely on specific criteria and merits.
With Weston-based The Spinnaker Group as Title Sponsor, the sixth annual GalaVerde will recognize and honor those outstanding projects, inspirational businesses, dedicated individuals, and instrumental Chapter members who are leading the way to a more sustainably built environment in our South Florida community. More than 350 attendees are expected at the awards ceremony on September 19, 2015, at the Hyatt Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where the winners will be announced. The evening will raise funds to support the nonprofit organization’s educational activities and initiatives.
GalaVerde 2015 will include a VIP reception, pre- and post-event cocktail hours, dinner, a silent auction, superlative networking (we call it “GREENworking”), and an abundance of anticipation for the awards presentations and keynote address.
Rick Fedrizzi, CEO and Founding Chair of the U.S. Green Building Council, will serve as the special keynote speaker for the evening. Tim Center, Executive Director of Sustainable Florida and principal of Centerfield Strategy, will serve as master of ceremonies. Fedrizzi and Center will highlight an evening of recognition and appreciation for the South Florida green-building community during which the Chapter will recognize this past year’s Outstanding Community LEEDer, Green Business, Green Government, Green Elected Official, and Outstanding LEED Certified projects in South Florida.
