U.S. Green Building Council to Receive National Building Museum's Turner Prize

The National Building Museum has named the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) the fourth recipient of the Henry C. Turner Prize for Innovation in Construction Technology. In a release, the museum noted the USGBC's "promotion of sustainable design and building practices and, specifically, the development of the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System."

“The USGBC has been a primary catalyst in the sustainable design movement, helping ‘green’ building become a significant trend in design and construction,” said Chase Rynd, executive director of the Museum.

The prize, supported by the Turner Construction company, recognizes notable advances and high achievement in construction methods and processes. The museum will host an event at its location in Washington, D.C. on Monday, October 24 to honor the USGBC.
