AGC Announces Sustainability Award for Green Construction

Wellesley, MA.   In an effort to increase awareness of the efforts that many owners, architects and construction professionals are making toward sustainable building processes and development, AGC of Massachusetts is sponsoring an efficient and affordable certificate awards program for sustainability – Sustainability award for Green Construction (SAGC). 

The SAGC process features mandatory criteria as well as additional energy-efficient building features that must be met in order to be eligible for this distinctive award.  These include water and energy conservation, project impact to the environment, recyclable materials, and site, facility and building systems.

As more projects begin to emerge, the emphasis on sustainability will continue to be in the forefront of development.  What better way to acknowledge the efforts of owners, developers and building professionals than by seeking recognition for a sustainable job well done!  The criteria for the award are simple, straight forward and sustainable.  SAGC was begun by a group of industry professionals and sponsored by AGC of Massachusetts.  The goal of SAGC is to emphasize the good stewardship created in the development, design and construction of facilities today.  The SAGC incorporates similar parameters to other green programs but with less impact on the project team’s resources than other third-party programs.
