Thanks to everyone who joined us at our Annual Sustainable Leadership Awards on April 20th, 2017 as we celebrated the region’s premiere building professionals for their work in 2016. We hope you enjoyed the educational sessions, the panel, the awards program, and the networking reception!

On Thursday, April 20th, just two days before Earth Day, regional leaders in the advancement of sustainable design and construction were honored as winners of Viridiant’s Annual Sustainable Leadership Awards. The annual awards recognize the region’s premiere developers, builders, architects, government officials and other industry professionals for their work in advancing the benefits of sustainable building. Winners were announced at a reception held at the Virginia Historical Society which drew over 150 guests. During the program, attendees also enjoyed a housing policy and research panel – “Leveraging Partner Success Towards Economic, Environmental, and Structural Sustainability” with Art Bowen of Virginia Hosuing Development Authority, Andrew McCoy of Virginia Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech, and Angela Navarro of the Office of Governor McAuliffe, moderated by Bob Adams of HDAdvisors.

“It’s an honor to recognize the dedicated individuals who continue to amaze us with their passion for high performance home building,” said KC Bleile, Executive Director of Viridiant. “This year’s nominees and winners exceed building expectations with their cutting edge projects that are transforming today’s housing market and serve as proof that the science of sustainability can deliver a housing future that is more affordable, more durable and more liveable.”
