Boston, MA – Lauren Barnes, Architectural Designer at Flansburgh, has earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate credential, placing her as a leading professional in the green building industry. The LEED Green Associate program is one of several credentials administered by Green Business Certification Incorporated (GBCI) in recognition of excellence in green building performance globally. Joining an international community of more than 201,000 professionals who have earned a LEED credential, Lauren is excited to help projects save energy and contribute to a healthier, more sustainable world. In order to receive her LEED Green Associate credential, Lauren had to score an 85% out of a 200-question test. She can now sit for the LEED Accredited Professional (AP) test, a higher level of accreditation demonstrating extensive technical and professional knowledge of green building. Lauren is excited to have “more people in the office LEED accredited because it can gain us a whole point on a project if someone on the team is LEED GA or LEED AP.” Congratulations to Lauren for passing her first LEED test!
