Green Mile a Smashing Success!
From all of us at the Miami-Dade Branch of USGBC South Florida Chapter we would like to say, THANK YOU, for taking part in The Green Mile 2014. We appreciate your support of our nonprofit organization and commitment to healthy and sustainable lifestyles. It is through your participation that we are able to further our mission and vision to transform the way buildings are built and ensure sustainability throughout our city and region.

A hardy congrats is extended to Chi Chi, Denaye, Stephen and the entire Miami Branch and Emerging Professionals team for their win in the Our Miami Public Space Challenge. The project was a collaborative effort headed by USGBC Emerging Professionals and AIA Miami Young Architects Forum.
The Challenge, launched in July 2013, is the brainchild of the Miami Foundation, which last year embarked on a comprehensive effort to help locals feel more love for the place they call home. The Our Miami project was an initiative that began two years ago. The idea is based on a growing number of studies that show a close relationship between fiscal prosperity and cities whose residents feel a warm affinity for their hometowns. That’s in part because cities that people are proud to live in also tend to attract and retain the skilled, talented workers who drive economic growth.
USGBC South Florida Chapter Members Honored by the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce!
We would like to congratulate Luiz Rodrigues, Greg Hamra and Jonathan Burgess for their hard work and commitment to making green building and sustainability a reality in South Florida!
