The New Hampshire Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council is proud to announce that C. Stuart White Jr. AIA has been awarded the 2011 Sustainable Designer of the Year Award.  Stu has held a lifelong commitment to protecting the environment through his energy conservation commitment.  In the late 60’s, even before the oil embargo, Stu started his commitment to sustainability. Stu created one of the first residential projects to be accepted into the pilot LEED for Homes program – a home in Dorchester, NH.  Stu was an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the environmental studies program at Dartmouth College and as energy consultant to the Brookhaven National Labs focusing on passive solar energy utilization.

The New Hampshire Green Building Council is also proud to announce that the South Cove Recreation Center at Eastman in Grantham, NH has been selected as the 2011 NH Sustainable Building of the Year.   This LEED Gold Certified building was designed by Warranstreet Architects from Concord, NH and constructed by Milestone Construction from Concord, NH.  This building opened in 2009 utilizing regional New Hampshire Materials in construction and reducing energy consumption by more than 34%.  The building is designed and located to fit into the natural surroundings of Grantham and maximize conservation land.

Twelve other New Hampshire LEED certified buildings will be receiving recognition at the New Hampshire Green Building Council’s First Annual Awards Banquet. The First Annual New Hampshire Green Building Awards Banquet will be held at the Harbor Events and Conference Center in Portsmouth, NH on November 10, for additional information please visit www.usgbcnh.org.
