Building a Greener World
Practicing sustainability within the workplace will always yield personal and private rewards, however, work can be even more rewarding when others notice your achievements and efforts as well.
Andrew M. Sidford Architects (ASA), 1% member since 2006 , was recently highlighted in North Shore Magazine for their innovative work in sustainable design and build. An architectural firm from Newburyport, Massachusetts, ASA is one of the nations premier green building firms, Andrew, the owner, holds certifications from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) as well as having procured Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Professional Accreditation (LEED AP).
One of the firm’s recent projects that stands out is their recent renovation to The Carriage House. This deteriorating barn got a new life with ASA’s green building techniques including recycled materials, geothermal heating/cooling as well as on site water reuse.
“Andrew Sidford Architects’ Carriage House Project has been profiled several times for its sustainable design, most recently in the North Shore Magazine. The project is indeed special – it reprogrammed (lets just say saved!) a decaying antique barn while employing innovative green building technologies,” says a spokesperson for the firm.
Projects like this one as well as the long standing relationships Andrew Sidford Architects has with their 1% non-profit recipients are what make them such extraordinary members and such a vital part of the 1% network. Their continued support of 1% non-profits, Appalachian Mountain Club, Global Green Grants, Clean Air – Cool Planet, and Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) are what we here, at 1%, love to see. Keep up the good work!
