19th November 2013
Washington, D.C. (Nov 19, 2013) – The U.S. Green Building Council has named Brenda Morawa of Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES) to the 2013 class of LEED Fellows. The LEED Fellow Program is the green building industry’s most prestigious professional designation. The LEED Fellow designation recognizes exceptional contributions to green building and significant professional achievement within the rapidly growing community of LEED Professionals.
Morawa was among 51 of the world’s most distinguished green building professionals to be selected this year as LEED Fellows through a peer nomination and portfolio review process. Morawa’s LEED AP specialty credentials, 20 plus years of green building experience, and extensive portfolio including such exemplary projects as the Brickell Financial Center and the San Francisco Transbay Transit Center comprise a few of her outstanding qualifications.
“We are thrilled to present these highly accomplished individuals with the LEED Fellow designation,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, USGBC. “The Fellows are some of the leading innovators and vanguards of the green building movement, and their bodies of work strongly underscore their commitment to LEED and a sustainable built environment.”
Morawa's passion for sustainability began in the late 1980's when she conducted extensive energy modeling for the Federal National Energy Conservation Council Policies Act Program. Internationally known as an expert in sustainability, LEED consulting, energy modeling and commissioning, she is a highly sought-after speaker and writer for global green building events and publications. Morawa has also been active in the USGBC by serving on the EA TAG, the Atlanta Chapter Board and is now the Vice Chair of the LEED implementation committee.
Brenda Morawa will be recognized with the rest of the 2013 LEED Fellow class at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Philadelphia this month. For more information on the LEED Fellow program, please visit usgbc.org/leed/credentials/leed-fellow/.
