Our clients received the George A. Scott Stewardship Award, one of the 2012 Environmental Achievement Awards from the Region of Durham for this straw bale food-storage building in Greenwood. The sustainable features of this building include geothermal heating and cooling and the living roof installed by Restoration Gardens Inc. They are pictured with their award on the bottom row (left and middle). Congratulations!
