DVGBC Groundbreaker Finalist for FMC Tower and Project Award Winner for New College House

October 16, 2017

This year’s Delaware Valley Green Building Council Groundbreaker Awards acknowledged two University projects for their commitment to sustainability. The Groundbreaker Awards focus on a collective mission to advance design and building technologies that improve health, save money, and reduce carbon emissions. New College House won the prestigious Project Award, and was recognized for green roofs on over 70% of its rooftop surfaces, as well as sophisticated HVAC systems, and a preserved green space for all its residents and the surrounding community.  Additionally, the FMC Tower at Cira Centre South was one of six project finalists. The FMC Tower is a high performing tower, saving energy and water use while offering great views, green roofs, and plazas.
