The Environmental Stewardship Award for this year, which is given by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), was presented to the Chattanooga, Tennessee, design company green|spaces, according to the news channel WTVC-TV.

CSI - a group of architects, contractors and other building experts amounting to nearly 13,000 people - gave this award to the design company because of their forward thinking of eco-friendly design and their efforts to educate residents about the benefits of sustainable materials in buildings, according to the news source.

"Each project has received incentives from green|spaces, enabling design and construction using materials and environmentally sound practices that consider the impact of the building on the people and ecosystems around it," Brian Clarke of DH&W Architects, who nominated green|spaces, told the news provider.

This recognition has made the town of Chattanooga one of the leaders in the Southeast for sustainable buildings. There are currently 41 buildings that have received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certifications, the media outlet reports.

Individuals who are interested in architecture may be able to land a job when they graduate from their programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
