New Smuttynose facility wins regional energy-efficiency award
Hampton building cited for ‘outstanding innovation and commitment to sustainable energy practices’
Smuttynose Brewing Company’s new headquarters on Towle Farm in Hampton has won the Association of Energy Engineers’ Comprehensive Project of the Year Award.
The award recognizes “outstanding innovation and commitment to sustainability energy practices” by construction projects in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Only 14 projects in the region met the standards to be nominated Among other contenders beat out by Smuttynose were recent renovations at the TD Garden in Boston.
A low-demand lighting system, multiple heat and cold recovery devices and, most significantly, a tight building envelope and above required insulation are some of the many features that won the award for Smuttynose.
