5th Annual Friends of USGBC Gala + Leadership Awards

The 5th Annual Friends of U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) New York Upstate Gala and Leadership Awards will be held Tuesday, November 27th, 2018 at the Renaissance Hotel Marriott in Albany, NY.

Join us as we celebrate and honor Michael Phinney, Principal at Phinney Design Group, with the Kevin P. Stack Award for Sustainability. USGBC NY Upstate will recognize Mike's 23 year career as an architect and impressive portfolio of award-winning projects, combined with his firm's focus on sustainable and environmentally sensitive construction. 

As the founder and Principal at Phinney Design Group, Michael has organically grown a niche  company that has developed a reputation as a thoughtful, responsive and highly creative design firm balanced with great technical  thoroughness.  After completing his architectural  thesis at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on “Environmental Awareness in  Architecture” in 1995, Michael quickly became a leader and pioneer in the sustainable design movement. He has been a large contributor and/or the team leader on many environmentally sensitive buildings including the first LEED certified green building in New York State in 2001, the first certified “Healthy House” in the Northeastern United States in 2004 by the American Lung Association, the first LEED certified green building in the Adirondack Park in 2008, and one of the first LEED certified Platinum Residences in the United States in early 2010.
