This month the Wister Center received the Green Building of America award. This award is given by Real Estate and Construction Review to projects that are “unique and challenging,” projects other architects could “learn from” with advanced “design, construction and technology” and a project the board feels is “cutting edge,” according to Lance Kamin, publisher.

The Wister center was selected from more than 2,500 nominated projects and will be spotlighted in the special Real Estate & Construction Review-Northeast Green Success Stories edition in 2010.

Check out the article in Delaware County Daily Times to learn more. To see ongoing photos of construction on Wister Center, visit the Scott Arboretum’s facebook page. Learn more about our efforts to receive LEED silver certification on the Wister Center here.
