ACEDC Members Win VT’s Greenest Building Awards

The 6th Annual Vermont’s Greenest Building Awards, hosted by the Vermont Green Building Network (VGBN), recognized seven projects and design/build teams around the state. Three of the winners are also members of the Addison County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC), VT Integrated Architecture, Bread Loaf Corporation & the Town of Middlebury

These projects received awards for achieving the highest standard of demonstrated building energy performance for residential and commercial buildings, and were judged based on an expanded definition of “green” building. 

The 2017 winners were recently celebrated at the VT Green Building Gala in Burlington. Winning residential, commercial and Net Zero buildings were showcased as inspirational, model green buildings that create a new standard for environmentally responsible building in the state.
