A member of both the Connecticut and US Green Building Council, he is a frequent presenter on sustainability. He also is overseeing Centerbrook’s compliance with the American Institute of Architects 2030 Commitment, whose goal is for all new and renovated buildings to be carbon neutral by that date.
