DiNisco Design is pleased to announce the Angier Elementary School in Newton, MA, has been awarded LEED Gold certification. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is a prominent program for buildings that are designed, constructed, and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. The City of Newton’s active participation in the design process demonstrates its strong commitment to environmental sustainability. The Angier Elementary School was the oldest school building in Newton still in service as a neighborhood elementary school. The school did not have a cafeteria, nor was.
