SHP recently put out a few press releases that I wanted to share, so bear with me while I self-promote for just a minute. Back to hard hitting sustainability content shortly!
Last month SHP announced that we have opened a new office in Denver, Colorado. We are very excited about the Denver market for many reasons including the opportunity to broaden our awareness of sustainability issues outside of the Midwest Region and take advantage of contractual agreements that move more toward an Integrated Project Delivery methodology. You can rean our full press release for the new office here.
Earlier in November, SHP won two Cincinnati Design Awards. One was for our tenant fit out for Gyro: HSR and the second was for our line of Ecoflash iPhone apps for studying for the LEED exams. We are thrilled to receive the awards, but also excited that, for the first time ever, we were given a “design” award for a product rather than a space or building.

Finally, not to be completely self-absorbed, but I earned the last remaining LEED with specialty credential that I did not already hold: LEED for Neighborhood Development. I can’t know for sure, but in doing a quick search of the GBCI Professional Directory it looks like I am the second person in the World to achieve all five credentials. I am not entirely sure what I am going to do with all the credentials, but since I teach classes on LEED and work in nearly all of the rating systems I felt that I had a duty to sort of prove my qualifications to do this work by earning the credentials.
