The ECHO building at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain on Burlington’s waterfront has the honor of receiving Vermont’s first “Green Building Certification” from the U.S. Green Building Council. It’s also among the first 70 buildings nationwide to be recognized as a “LEED” building – or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The official announcement will come at a press conference later Monday morning. Mitch Wertlieb talks with Falen Fretz, ECHO’s executive director.
