Project Hope’s Roxbury Community Center has achieved Silver LEED certification from the United States Green Building Council (U.S.G.B.C.), making it the first green building in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, MA. Chapman served as the construction manager for the building, which was completed in September 2006.
The four-story 18,000 sf Project Hope Community Center received a total of 34 credits to attain Silver LEED certification. Credits were granted for a variety of features and solutions including: the use of construction materials with recycled content; recycling of construction waste; daylighting in 90 percent of the indoor spaces; use of low-emitting materials; and IAQ strategies. The construction was overseen by two of Chapman’s LEED Accredited Professionals, including Senior Project Manager George Dyroff.
Chapman congratulates and thanks all who contributed to the project’s success including, Project Hope, architects Finegold Alexander + Associates, owner’s representative Seth A. Ravitz Associates, Inc., and Boston-based green building consultant The Green Roundtable.
