Expert Helps Beijing
Building Win Award



A building in Beijing, that Joe Huang, with the Lab's Environmental Energy Technologies Division, helped design has received a "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design" gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. Huang was the principal technical advisor for the schematic design of the Agenda 21 Demonstration office building. Huang and Peng Xu, also with EETD, are implementing a plan to monitor the energy performance of the building.

The event takes place in the Building 50 Auditorium at noon.
