Building Green at Home

To continue the theme of Karen Carey's post last week on building "green" in China, the Winston-Salem Journal today reports that Family Services' new headquarters, a $4 million, 20,000 square foot facility in the Southeast Gateway development (located between downtown Winston and Old Salem) will be the first building in Forsyth County to be certified "green" by the U.S. Green Building Council.

What make's "green" buildings special? They "are constructed using materials and building practices that are renewable, don't harm the environment and use less energy than traditional construction methods."

For the full story, see the Winston-Salem Journal.
