"Green" is the color for development and new construction, and it is getting brighter. Architects from the North Carolina Triangle area are responding to growing interest in earth-friendly buildings by expanding their capabilities to include experts in green design. No longer is LEED certification a novelty, it's big business. As reported in the News & Observer (Raleigh), "in the past two years, as energy prices have ridden a roller coaster and as municipalities from Washington, D.C., to Chapel Hill have tried to legislate green development, more developers are getting on board." Public schools are also beginning to enjoy an eco-friendly environment, including the newly-opened Northern Guilford Middle School, and at Wake Technical Community College. See here.
