Sustainable Success at University of Virginia Bonnycastle

Our work with Clark Nexsen takes home the USGBC Community Leader Award in higher education

After achieving LEED Silver Certification, our sustainable renovation of University of Virginia Bonnycastle with Clark Nexsen has earned additional recognition from the USGBC Virginia, the 2020 Community Leader Award in Innovative Design, Higher Education.

USGBC Virginia writes, “The Castle and its surrounding outdoor plaza are now a vibrant hub with sustainable menu choices that reflect the preferences of today’s students. Bonnycastle received 11 out of a maximum of 19 “Optimize Energy Performance” points which is impressive for a building with intensive food service.” Read about the award, and all the winners, here.

We can’t wait to apply the creative and sustainable lessons learned to future projects. The students at the University of Virginia love “The Castle” and its wraparound porch, plant-forward menu, and fresh filtered air. Learn more about the project here.

Congratulations to our team, and our wonderful partners too!
