After years of hard work—from design through documentation—the gleam of LEED Silver finally emerges. Our Folsom + Dore Supportive Apartments was the first residential building in Northern California to be LEED certified, and on April 19 the U. S. Green Building Council made it official.
The LEED Silver plaque was unveiled at an on-site event hosted by non-profit developer Citizens Housing. Supervisor Chris Daly came out to help celebrate, and a representative of Dianne Feinstein's office read a letter of support from the Senator. Congratulations and kudos went out to the building team for their ecologically sound accomplishments, and all looked forward to a city future where such a level of environmental responsibility is intrinsic in all new construction.
