It’s officially summer in New Haven, CT, and along the stretch of shoreline ASSA ABLOY calls home, the food trucks, seagulls and dragon boats have returned in force. (Did she say, “dragon boats?”) That’s right! As the tide rose at 4:15pm on June 3rd, three, 41-foot Chinese dragon boats raced across Long Island Sound, and I was rowing like heck in one of them!
I travelled to Orlando in May for the American Institute of Architects Conference on Architecture 2017. ASSA ABLOY parked its Decorative Opening Solutions mobile showroom on the exhibition floor and for two-and-a-half blissful days my colleagues and I connected and conversed among displays of doors and hardware, with friends old and new.
Amy Vigneux, Director, Sustainable Building Solutions for ASSA ABLOY, talks with us about why Greenbuild is the place to be for sustainability education and networking, how LEED v4 is pushing the industry in the right direction and how ASSA ABLOY is embracing material transparency, energy efficiency and high-performance building practices.
