Boston’s Construction Projects Getting 'Green' Light

Big city projects aren't the only ones going green -- energy efficiency also is going mainstream in commercial construction throughout the state as tenants demand it and developers reap the benefits. With many communities adopting the state's so-called Stretch Energy Code, most new construction must demonstrate entry-level LEED certified energy efficiency before projects can be permitted. Every community doesn't have a green energy code such as Boston's that requires LEED certification for city projects, but the stretch code is moving all construction in a green direction.
