Bangor, Maine, June 6,2012: The recently-completed Maine Hall historic renovation project, located on the old Bangor Theological Seminary (BTS) campus on Union St, has received the leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED) “silver” certification by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
LEED is the standard used for evaluating building construction as it relates to its environmental impact and energy efficiency. Maine Hall was recognized with the prestigious “Silver” status due to such things as its adaptive reuse of the existing 1830’s bts dormitory structure, diversion of construction waste from landfill, recycled content and HVAC system efficiency.
Nickerson & O’Day (NOD) has been recognized numerous times by USGBC for LEED certification for its projects including MDI Bio Lab, the MDOT’s Acadia Gateway, the University of Maine’s Wells Commons, and the Maine Coast Heritage Trust headquarters building. NOD employs five LEED-accredited professionals and is the leading builder of “green” construction in Eastern and Northern Maine.
