Redmond, WA - The City of Redmond was recently selected as the 2013 Built Green Hammer Award winner in the Built Green program’s Advocate, Public Sector category. Cathy Beam, the City’s principal environmental planner, accepted the award at last week’s 2013 Built Green Conference, held at the Brightwater Education Center in Woodinville, WA.

“The City of Redmond has been an outstanding partner in promoting green building practices in the region,” said Aaron Adelstein, executive director for Built Green. “Their incentive program and work with builders is helping lower the impact of residential buildings on the environment throughout the community.”

Now in its 12th year, Built Green is an environmentally friendly non-profit residential building program of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, developed in partnership with King County, Snohomish County, and other agencies in Washington State. The Hammer Awards were designed to reward Built Green members for their outstanding projects and participation.
