On Thursday, April 28th, the Lloyd Center will host an expert panel discussion on its pursuit of a Welcome Center with Living Building Challenge™ (LBC) certification, the building industry’s most ambitious sustainable construction performance standards. The Welcome Center will house a bus drop-off shelter, interior and exterior meeting/teaching space, informational displays and compost-toilets.
The Lloyd Center’s new building will be unique in New England and provide learning opportunities for visitors of all ages to engage in innovative restorative “green building” principles. For additional information about the Living Building Challenge, visit living-future.org.
In addition, the Center will present the 2016 George G. Haydock Award. This is the Center’s most prestigious award and is presented annually to an individual, selected by the staff and board of directors of the Lloyd Center who, in the spirit and tradition exemplified by long-time Lloyd Center supporter and nature enthusiast, Dr. George G. Haydock, is deemed to have personally made a most outstanding contribution to protecting the fragile nature of our coastal environment.
The Annual Meeting will take place in the Manton Community Room at the Westport Free Public Library, located at 408 Old County Road in Westport, MA. Members of the public are invited to a welcoming reception from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and stay for the Annual Meeting and presentation of the George G. Haydock Award.
