Chapter Members & Staff in the News

Dave Zimmerman, of Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 36 and Emily Andrews, USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter’s Executive Director, were featured in a St. Louis Business Journal article about the new headquarters of the Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 36, which is seeking LEED Platinum certification. According to the article, local leaders see the new building, which opened in April, as a tool for local economic development and an opportunity to showcase the green technical capacity of the local workforce.

Zimmermann says that moving forward, most projects will be renovations of existing buildings and their building provides a showcase for the region. Not only is the building toured nearly daily by those interested in learning about green building, it’s also performing! Though it’s five times larger than their old building, the new headquarters has had lower energy bills.
