Uniondale, June 15, 2010 — Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana, LLP (the Firm) was featured as the June Green Leader in Newsday. While the GreenSt LI program is about saving Long Island, one person at a time, Newsday’s Green Leaders program focuses on those businesses that recognize that the only way to really move Long Island to a greener place is with the help of business leaders. Real Estate Partner Brian Sahn was interviewed on the Firm’s commitment to sustainability and quest for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, LEED-certification.
He noted the Firm’s commitment to maintain an eco-friendly presence, and detailed how build-out of the turnkey space incorporated a multitude of ‘green’ and sustainable construction materials and techniques which were overseen by a LEED- accredited architect. In addition to the eco-friendly programs, the Firm registered the project with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for LEED Certification in Commercial Interiors. ”A clean, healthy working environment makes your employees happier; it makes them less likely to be out sick; and it makes them more productive during the day,” said Sahn. The new space not only saves energy and money for the Firm, but also creates work environment for employees.
GreenStreet LI is sponsored by The Sustainability Institute at Molloy College which is committed to environmental education and recognizing Long Island’s Green Leaders.
