Principal Jean Carroon Named to U.S. Green Building Council’s 2014 Class of LEED Fellows

Goody Clancy Principal Jean Carroon, a leader in sustainable design, has been named a LEED Fellow by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).  LEED Fellows represent an elite class of accomplished green-building professionals and are recognized for their exceptional contributions to the green building community as well as their significant achievements among a growing group of LEED Professionals. 

As the leader of the Preservation Practice at Goody Clancy, Jean’s diverse portfolio of LEED projects ranges from the LEED Platinum Welcome Center at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont to the new office space for the Unitarian Universalist Association in Boston, Massachusetts.  She is the author of Sustainable Preservation: Greening Existing Buildings, Wiley & Sons, 2010.

Potential LEED Fellows are nominated by their peers and evaluated based on four out of five “mastery elements” including: technical proficiency (required), education and mentoring, leadership, commitment and service, and advocacy. The evaluation process is carried out by the LEED Fellow Evaluation Committee and supported by the Green Building Certification Institute, GBCI. To earn this designation, LEED Fellows must have at least 10 years of experience in the green building industry and hold a LEED AP with specialty credential, among other requirements.

The 2014 Class of LEED Fellows will be recognized at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in New Orleans, October 22-24.

 

Kendall Square praised for its past and future as an exemplary innovation district

We are proud to announce that the Congress for the New Urbanism presented their 2014 Charter Award for Best Urban Infill to Goody Clancy and the City of Cambridge for the Kendall Square Planning Study. Kendall Square has long been praised for its success in attracting innovation businesses, including recent recognition from the Brookings Institute which recognizes the district as an exemplary model for growing a successful innovation district, but the district suffers from anonymity due to lack of housing, single-use buildings with large floor plates, and auto-oriented streetscapes.The study positions the city to grow further as a globally significant source of innovation, while incorporating a greater variety of public spaces and development designed for people. Over the next ten years, 4 million square feet will become available for mixed-income housing, retail space, cultural space, and public use. "From its current disparate and disconnected reality," jury member Will Bruder says, "the proposal would create a memorable sense of place through the innovate redevelopment of empty lots and voids in the neighborhood fabric." In presenting the award, Jury Chair Jeff Speck noted how much the jury valued the plan's emphasis on good communication with stakeholders to build consensus for issues such as density and building form.
