Straughan consulted with the construction contractor for the renovation of the 73,398 square-foot Frederick National Lab for Cancer Research. The project goal was a One Green Globes certification.
Straughan provided Green Globes project management from pre-construction through building occupancy to oversee and document all contractor sustainability requirements. Straughan led the construction contractor team to develop a Sustainability Action Plan to meet the project goals and provided Division 1 Plans to meet spec requirements for construction waste, indoor air quality during construction, and all sustainable materials requirements (low-VOC, recycled content, regional, and certified wood). The project exceeded its goal by earning Two Green Globes.
