NEW YORK, NY – Engineering News-Record (ENR) Magazine released its first Top Green Design Firms list, ranking Shepley Bulfinch at #59. The rankings are based on design firms’ 2007 revenues from projects that were registered and are actively seeking certification from the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and other major third-party environmental standards organizations.
The firm’s portfolio includes a wide range of sustainable projects, including those receiving LEED certification. The Duke Library at Furman University received LEED Gold certification earlier this year, and the firm’s renovation of Gallatin Hall at Harvard Business School, scheduled to be completed later this summer, is on track for LEED Gold certification.
Sustainable design is a central value of the firm, with an active Sustainable Design Leadership Group and a majority of principals who are LEED Accredited Professionals (AP). The firm’s office and design studio received LEED-CI Silver certification in 2007.
Shepley Bulfinch is a corporate member of the US Green Building Council since 2001 and a signatory to the 2030 Challenge.
