GBI announces 2021 Green Globes Awards in Virtual Awards Ceremony on Earth Day

VA Boston Healthcare System Research Service has been named 2021 Green Globes Project of the Year by the Green Building Initiative during a virtual awards ceremony April 22, in honor of Earth Day. The Sustainable Interiors project earned a Four Green Globes rating, the highest level of recognition under the Green Globes certification system.

The VA Boston Healthcare System is located in Boston, Massachusetts. The space was designed to use as little energy and water as possible while mitigating the appropriate needs for ventilation, lighting, controllability of systems, and optimized acoustics. The project earned full applicable credit in three of the six environmental assessment areas, including project management, water, and emissions & effluents.

“We are thrilled to be selected as the 2021 Green Globes Project of the Year,” said Black Jackson, project team leader and Stantec’s sustainability design leader – US North East, senior associate. “This was everyone’s first Green Globes project.”

Jackson explains the format of the rating system, with clear strategies and objectives, helped the project team to align the design, construction and operational goals of the VA Boston Healthcare System. This resulted in achieving a healthy, sustainable workplace as well as certification.

“The fact that we achieved the highest possible rating, on time and on budget, inspires us to keep prioritizing sustainability on all future projects,” Jackson added.
