Our One Lakeview project in Burlington, VT received a Green Building Award for Commercial & Multi Family Construction last week from the Vermont Green Building Network. 
The award is given to "Projects demonstrating energy use intensity at least 50% below the regional average energy use for buildings of the same end use and incorporating other sustainability features."

Our project at the @springfieldfoodcoop in VT won the 2023 Efficiency Vermont Best of the Best Award for Best Small Renovation in the Commercial Building Design and Construction category.
From @efficiencyvt:
“The annual Efficiency Vermont Best of the Best Awards recognize innovative and integrated design approaches for energy efficiency, health, and affordability in Vermont’s commercial and residential buildings”
We've always believed that good design and sustainable design go hand in hand, and we're very pleased to announce that we're now able to certify buildings to a Passive House standard. Dan Wheeler, Architectural Designer at gbA, just completed his training to become a Certified Passive House Consultant. Dan also heads up the studio’s AIA 2030 Commitment, documenting energy performance with the intent of tracking the firm’s progress in designing for energy efficiency and carbon neutrality by the year 2030.

“The Nest” at 79 Pine Street in Burlington and an article about it by gbA’s Gregg Gossens are featured in the March 2023 issue of Louis Mannie Lionni’s publication, 05401. (photo credits: L. M. Lionni) 

Regarding navigating Burlington’s form-based zoning ordinance, Gregg writes: 
“As for working out the more detailed aspects of the form-based code, and there are very many specific requirements, we needed to push, pull, and sometimes rationalize our way through.  But the rationale had to be purposeful and ‘correct’ per the standards.  While the idea of a recipe sounds prescriptive, it does offer great latitude for creativity, visual interest, and engagement…But it takes effort and a willingness to push the limits.”
