Farmington, NY (PRWEB) January 7, 2009
New Energy Works Timberframers is pleased to announce that Ty Allen is now a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Accredited Professional (AP).
LEED Professional Accreditation distinguishes building professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully steward the LEED certification process. LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs) have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles and the LEED Rating System. Mr. Allen is one of only 43,000 people who have earned the credential since the Professional Accreditation program was launched in 2001.
Ty Allen is employed by New Energy Works in the design group working with clients to meet their residential and commercial design needs. He holds a Bachelors of Architecture from the Cornell University School of Architecture, Art, and Planning. His primary focus is well-crafted, thoughtfully designed custom timber frame homes, using super insulated building envelopes, recycled and sustainable timber, and energy efficient systems.
Mr. Allen says, "Though New Energy Works has been building green for 25 years, becoming a LEED AP was a necessary evolution for me and for the company; environmental responsibility is and always will be a key component of our culture here at NEW." He added that the title gives him credibility to act as a resource and apply his knowledge to existing and future commercial, residential, and planning projects for clients, and other architects and builders the company works with.
