Middlebury – The Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op will be presenting a free program on green building as part of its Energy Education Program Series, from 1 to 3 p.m., on Saturday, May 26 at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society at 2 Duane Court, Middlebury. This informative program will be presented by Jean Terwilliger, a local LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited architect, and will include a tour of the new CVUUS sanctuary building. The program is co-sponsored by the CVUUS Green Sanctuary Program Committee.
Green buildings save energy and are built with healthy materials, but to be truly sustainable over time they also need to help create community and be loved by the people who inhabit them. Through a tour of the new CVUUS sanctuary building and examples from her design work, Terwilliger will explore how light, space, materials and design work together to create beautiful, functional, sustainable and resilient places to live and work.
Terwilliger is an Addison County architect specializing in the design of sustainable homes, additions and renovations using collaborative design and cost effective green building technologies. Recent projects include LEED and Energy Star rated homes and a wide range of addition and renovation projects throughout Addison County including the Trackside Depot train station renovation in downtown Middlebury. A graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Terwilliger has over 15 years of architectural experience and is a LEED for Homes accredited professional.
