Green Hammer Awards November 12, 2010 +/-
This year our work made it into the top 4 finalists for the 2010 Golden Hammer Award presented by A.C.O.R.N. Instead of winning a Golden Hammer, the project actually won the first ever Green Hammer Award, representing a new category created specifically for recognition of exemplary sustainable building work that aligns with ACORN’s mission.
1417 Grove Avenue, aka “The Phoenix” due to its post-fire rise back into being, is the newly renovated home of Dr. Susan Miller and Dr. Ken Kendler in The Fan. A great deal of heartfelt effort went into the design, implementation, and oversight of this project, and Watershed could not be happier for both Dr. Miller and Dr. Kendler who will proudly display the “Green Hammer” award in their new home.
