Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) September 28, 2013
Anyone who knows Drew Smith or has met him affectionately refers to him as Mr. Green. Drew eats, sleeps, and breathes green building. Drew started Two Trails to be a resource and a go to company for the building industry for their green building needs.
This has been a great year of recognition for this long-standing green building veteran of over 13 years. In the beginning of the year at the 2013 International Builders Show NAHB Green Awards, Drew was recognized as Advocate Of The Year and the company’s Seabourn Cove project won for best Green Multi-Family project.
Later in the year, the Home Innovation Research Labs that oversees the ICC700 National Green Building Standard (NGBS) recognized Drew as an NGBS Green Certification Partner of Excellence. This award is given for outstanding contributions to advancing green building in their communities and commitment to voluntary, market-driven, third-party certification of high-performance homes.
This month, Governor Rick Scott of Florida has reappointed Drew for another four years as the Green Building Commissioner for the State of Florida. Drew was the first appointed Green Building Commissioner in 2008 and is thrilled to be reappointed by the Governor again this year.
While the year is not yet over, Drew has also been recognized by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) as Certifying Agent of the year for 2013. Drew has also been given this award in 2008, 2010, and 2011. The Florida Green Building Coalition is a third party green building certification that takes into consideration the unique climate challenges the state of Florida presents to building projects.
If you are in the building design industry, I have one question for you. Have you met Drew Smith? If you have any projects in the pipeline or current projects, a phone call to Mr. Green can only help your project just a little bit more.
