Green Building Construction Tour

On Thursday, August 25th, EcoBuilding Bargains hosted a Green Building Construction Tour at our future location on 83 Warwick St. in Springfield. Our honored guests included Secretary Sullivan (Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs), Mayor Domenic Sarno, Jeffrey Simon (Massachusetts Recovery and Reinvestment Office), staff from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER), capital campaign supporters, material donors and partners, and other leaders in the local community. Thanks to all who attended!

Our presentation and tour highlighted the progress made in the construction of our new building, and pointed to all of the energy efficient features that will let us use about 60% less energy than a typical warehouse building of its size.   We have a list of many of them in this handout.

22 News ran a story today about the event, you can see that here. The Republican/MassLive was also in attendance, you can read their article about our expansion here.
