This year Frank Javaheri has been recognized as PDC’s greenest project manager and was awarded the Kermit the Frog "It ain’t easy being green" traveling trophy! The criterion for assessing who is PDC’s greenest project manager was by averaging the total points for all LEEDv2009 certified projects. Over Frank’s career, he has had 5 buildings LEED certified totaling over 600,000sf. Both the Florida Innovation Hub as well as the addition for EH&S have received LEEDv3 Gold certification. In these buildings, sustainable features integrated include:
Currently, Frank is awaiting LEED certification for the recently completed Cypress Hall and Chemistry/Chemical Biology Building projects. Both are expected to meet the University policy of LEED Gold. Looking forward, Frank will be managing the renovation for Norman Hall as well as new construction for IFAS’s Bee Unit. Frank is eager to take on the challenges of adopting the latest LEEDv4 rating system into his future projects.
