Spectrum Design Recognized
July 3, 2009

The State & City Building in downtown Roanoke, Virginia.

The Virginia Sustainable Building Network (VSBN) has awarded Spectrum Design its 2009 Green Innovation Award for Best Multi-Family Residential Facility for the State & City Building in downtown Roanoke, Virginia. The award was presented at the 14th Annual Meeting of VSBN in Charlottesville.

“This is a terrific honor from our peers with the Virginia Sustainable Building Network,” says John Garland, PE, LEED AP, President and Principal at Spectrum Design which oversaw the LEED-certification and historic preservation process. “Identifying creative new ways to incorporate green design and technologies into our building projects has long been a passion for Spectrum Design. The State & City Building is a shining example of environmental stewardship and we continue to be proud and humbled by the role we played in its restoration.”

In December 2007 the State & City Building became the first building in the Roanoke and New River Valleys to receive the U.S. Green Building Council’s prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED®) certification, the second building in Virginia to combine LEED-certification and historic preservation, and the first building in the nation to combine historic preservation and LEED-certification into transforming an office building into condominiums.
