Recently, a DGT project, Hurld Wyman Elementary School in Woburn, earned LEED Silver certification by the United States Green Building Council, signaling the City of Woburn’s commitment to sustainable development. Brought on by the architects and planners at DiNisco Design, DGT performed civil engineering and wetlands consulting for the project. This included stormwater management designs for water quality and flood resilience, as well as wetlands and environmental permitting. Our civil engineering services contributed to the “sustainable site” credits, helping the project receive the roughly 50+ points needed to achieve Silver status in the LEED for Schools certification program.
“Sustainable building is becoming second-nature these days; most of the school projects we have worked on apply for either LEED certification or the Massachusetts CHPS Program. We’re glad to see another one of our school projects achieve this honor,” said Fred King, PE, LEED AP and Wetlands Specialist to DGT Associates. “We had great cooperation from the local permitting authorities and the Mass. Department of Environmental Protection, and we are very pleased with how this project went.”
