Cliff Valley School was named EarthCraft Light Commercial 2011 Project of the Year by Southface and the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association at the EarthCraft Celebration of Excellence held at the Southface Eco Office in Atlanta. EarthCraft, the Southeast’s premier green building program, promotes energy efficient, healthy, comfortable and durable new construction and renovation.
Cliff Valley School was honored for leadership and excellence in green building design and construction for its facility at 2426 Clairmont Road in Atlanta. The project, completed in September 2011, included the addition of an academic wing and gymnasium with additional classroom and advisory space, a science lab, space for musical instruction and a stage for performing arts.
The award was presented by David Ellis, executive vice president of the Greater Atlanta HBA, and Dennis Creech, executive director of Southface, in the presence of over 100 industry leaders at the Southface Eco Office.
“We are seeing positive signs that the next generation of homes and light commercial buildings in our communities are increasingly green,” said Southface’s Dennis Creech. “Thanks to Cliff Valley School for making it happen.”
“EarthCraft professionals are realizing greater success than their peers because they are delivering a high value product to the market,” said David Ellis of the Greater Atlanta HBA. “We celebrate Cliff Valley School’s vision and leadership.”
