Member’s of HBI’s development team for the 2011 rehabilitation of the Eustis Street Fire House gathered recently to recognize the project’s LEED Silver certification with installation of a marker at the building.
HBI staff were joined by Ira Baline and Dee Spiro from project architect Bergmeyer Associates, and Brian Goosens and Noelle Muller from contractor Lee Kennedy Company.
The project team also welcomed two key partners from the City of Boston: Chief of Housing, Sheila Dillon, and the City’s Chief of Environment, Energy and Open Space, Austin Blackmon. The City of Boston helped finance the project and provided critical guidance and support on historic preservation, archeology and energy savings.
A program of the US Green Buildings Council, LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices for energy conservation. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. The Eustis Street Fire House achieved LEED Silver certification in 2013.
