Alfandre Architecture has been awarded the Best New Building Project of the Year Award by the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce for its new building located at 231 Main Street in New Paltz. The building is a prime example of green building, which aims to create sustainable living and working environments that are healthier and more resource-efficient. Alfandre Architecture designed, constructed, developed and owns the office building, which is registered with the US Green Buildings Council (USGBC) and is currently targeting a Platinum level certification.
“Green buildings are healthy buildings,” says owner Rick Alfandre. “We value our ability to bring healthy buildings to our community. We know how important it is for us to have green, energy-efficient buildings to live in, learn in and work in.”
The Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Ulster County Economic Development Alliance will recognize the recipients of the 2014 awards at a dinner in their honor at the Wiltwyck Golf Club in Kingston on October 23.
