Truckee’s Faulkner Architects receive green award

Faulkner Architects was awarded the 2009 City of Lafayette Environmental Award of Excellence: Green Award. The Green Award, celebrated in conjunction with Earth Day each year, strives to recognize outstanding efforts contributing to a more sustainable community and helping Lafayette achieve its essential environmental goals. The award recognizes the recently completed Lennox Residence in Lafayette, Calif., an architectural design incorporating green building systems and materials including solar chimney, net-zero photovoltaic electrical solar system, gray water recycling and rain water collection system for landscape irrigation, FSC certified lumber and recycled glass content batt insulation. All salvaged materials from the construction site were donated to ReUse People of America, an organization that salvages building materials and distributes them for reuse.
