SLATERPAULL ARCHITECTS GOES GREEN
WITH ANNUAL GREEN CHALLENGE

Denver, CO (March 10, 2009)
SLATERPAULL Architects, a Denver based architecture firm, announces the kick-off of its 3rd annual Green Challenge, a five week commitment to impact the environment. The Green Challenge runs from St. Patricks Day to Earth Day and encourages employees to make at least one significant change to reduce their personal carbon footprint, culminating with a firm wide green activity. This years corporate activity is working with the American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment to take the Green Challenge nationwide.

SLATERPAULLs Green Challenge highlights the firms longstanding commitment to sustainable design and environmental responsiveness, nearly 100 percent of SLATERPAULLs technical staff is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design accredited, the firm designed the first LEED Gold certified private high school in the state, uses a hybrid vehicle for business travel, hosted a large tree planting event in honor of its 35 year anniversary and recently added a full time sustainable design consultant.

The Green Challenge has been an exciting opportunity to strengthen and promote our firms core values, says Adele Willson, AIA, LEED AP, principal, SLATERPAULL Architects. Our philosophy is centered around designing for a sustainable future and the Green Challenge has helped further amplify this message in the community, our office and our personal lives.

Employee activities throughout the five week challenge include paying bills online, biking or taking public transportation to and from work, installing low flow fixtures, buying locally grown produce and recycling all paper, glass, aluminum and plastic items. The goal is to change old habits or form new ones that positively impact the environment and continue after the challenge is completed.
