This work helps raise the awareness that natural slate continues to make a magnificent and cost effective roof with one of the lowest life cycle costs availableÂ, said Fred Whitridge, President of Evergreen Slate Co.

Presenting the Whitman College project for Einhorn, Yafee, Prescott Architecture and Engineering was Sal Elder. ÂThis was a big project in scope, scale and time. We had to coordinate an international design team. We had to work to a demanding schedule with a large number of subcontractors. We are delighted with the final product and so is Princeton,Â said Mr. Elder. The Whitman College project can be seen at http://www.evergreenslate.com/Whitman.aspx
The Lakeside Communications Building at University of Connecticut - Storrs was presented by Tom Haskell of Dehar Associates LLC. ÂThis renovation had to comply with the UniversityÂs master plan and update and expand a building while making it compliant with current accessibility and building codes. Slate was really our only choice and ties the bulding together well,Â said Mr. Haskell. The project can be seen at: http://www.evergreenslate.com/Lakeside.aspx
