Architect receives green building certification

November 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Tony Chilton, AIA, president of Design Inc., a subsidiary of John S. Clark Company in Mount Airy, has received the LEED Accredited Professional designation.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to make an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance.

LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations was designed to guide and distinguish high-performance commercial and institutional projects. The LEED New Construction exam verifies that an individual possesses the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in the design process to support and encourage the design integration required by LEED and to streamline the application and certification process.

Chilton has more than 20 years’ diversified design/build architectural experience. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree and a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design in Architecture from North Carolina State University. Personally and through the design staff, he oversees the design concept, schedule, budget, details and value engineering of various John S. Clark Company projects, while also assisting with site and building assessments.

Other John S. Clark Company members with the LEED A.P. designation include Brock Hennings, P.E., a project manager for the Industrial Division, and Greg Savage, a senior project manager for the Triad Commercial Division.

John S. Clark Company recently joined the U.S. Green Building Council in order to promote environmentally conscience construction.
