Green practices have entered almost all American industries and many companies are being rewarded for their environmentally conscious business decisions. North Carolina newspaper, the Independent Weekly recently announced the winners of its annual Best of the Triangle area, which aims to salute local businesses who demonstrate the highest environmental standards in their field. The Triangle area encompasses Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh.

Winner of the Best Green Architect award is SfL+a Architects, a firm that has been nationally recognized for its work in sustainable architectural design.

Last year, SfL+a hired top professional staff and applied advanced hardware and software technology to unveil Dragonfly. This is the firm's sustainable design prototype that uses the most efficient technology possible for building K-12 public school facilities. This includes the use of geothermal heating and cooling, more advanced lighting and building controls and solar water heating. SfL+a works with more than 30 percent of all public schools in North Carolina.

"Green design is inspiring us to [create] buildings that reduce energy consumption, and most importantly, it challenges us to acknowledge the legacy that we will leave behind for our future generations," said Robbie Ferris, president and CEO of SfL+a Architects.

Voting for the Best of the Triangle was open to the public and winners were featured in the publication's June 2010 issue.
