Gatter & Diehl Received 'Most Successful Community Engagement' Award
November 20, 2019
Gatter & Diehl's MEP design of the Lehighton Elementary Center was recognized with the Most Successful Community Engagement Award at the 2019 Forever Green: USGBC Central PA Leadership Awards. The award celebrates a project team that has demonstrated creative and innovative strategies for connecting either with their internal or external community through a building project.
With a mindset to restructure the district, the Lehighton Area School District (LASD) decided to create a two-story, 166,000 sq. ft. primary elementary center to house all K-5 students replacing the four separate elementary schools that were in operation.
The LASD embraced the USGBC LEED program to assist in attaining their high standards for the project that concluded with a LEED Gold certification.
