Thanks to all involved with today’s tour of Pittsburgh’s first Living Building park facility, the Frick Environmental Center, @pittsburghparks, @go_gba, and @BCJarchitecture. It has been so awesome to watch this project come to life over the last few years!

“The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh, began construction of the new Center in August 2014. Engineered to meet the Living Building Challenge and achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification, the Center’s success depends on a staff that practices sustainable behaviors to reduce waste and use less energy and water.” Learn more about the park facility at www.pittsburghparks.org
