Change is Good (and Green)
Like most people and firms, we at Winter Street Architects try to consistently advocate for sustainability and develop our “green” culture. We took the first step in this journey back in 2000 when we saved the historic Newmark building on Essex Street and revitalized it for office and retail space. Since then we have adopted an aggressive recycling and waste reduction plan, promote bike-riding and car-sharing, and employ “green cleaning” professionals. But today marks our biggest change yet – decreasing our energy consumption and improving efficiency by upgrading our HVAC systems. With these new units, we anticipate improving our energy efficiency upwards of 40%! Sometimes one of the smallest things has momentous impact.
