Malcolm Lewis IMPACT! Award – Reclaim + Remake

Published on Written by Posted in Community

Thanks in part to its dedicated volunteers who contributed 500,000 hours to the green building movement in 2012 alone, the USGBC community continues to advance a healthier, more sustainable and prosperous built environment in communities across the globe. The Malcolm Lewis IMPACT! Award, a prestigious annual award, recognizes a high-impact, volunteer driven project or initiative that supports USGBC’s mission. 2013 nominations are open through Oct. 30. For more details, click here.

The chapel at Hopewell United Methodist Church has stood since 1844, but after 148 years of service, the historic building became too expensive and too small. The Reclaim + Remake project breathed new life into the site by reclaiming the memory and the material of the building to remake it into something that would last another 148 years. The result is an open-air pavilion that gives the community a place to gather, celebrate, and create new memories.

Submit your nomination by Oct. 30.
