The U.S. Green Building Council New Jersey chapter will celebrate six real estate and infrastructure projects at its upcoming awards gala, including a student housing development at Princeton University and a transformative manufacturing campus in Camden.
As in past years, USGBC NJ will recognize and present awards to companies and individuals that have demonstrated outstanding achievement and best practices in green building and sustainability, the organization said. This year’s gala will take place Wednesday, May 16, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Palace at Somerset Park in the Somerset section of Franklin.
“USGBC NJ’s Annual Awards Gala is a terrific event,” said USGBC NJ Board Chair Gregg Woodruff, associate and sustainability leader with Langan Engineering and Environmental Services. “This is the one time each year that we pause to honor a select group of projects and initiatives that represent the best of the best throughout the state when it comes to sustainability efforts.
