BAC Instructor Alex Wilson Wins Hanley Award

Congratulations to BAC Instructor Alex Wilson, the 2010 winner of the Hanley Award for Vision and Leadership in Sustainable Housing! Wilson is a sustainable design instructor and Distinguished Mentor of the Master of Design Studies in Sustainable Design program here at the Boston Architectural College.

The Hanley Award is sponsored by The Hanley Foundation, EcoHome magazine, and publisher Hanley Wood. Wilson will receive the award and an accompanying $50,000 grant at the U.S. Green Building Council Hanley Award Dinner ceremony on November 17th at the Greenbuild conference in Chicago. Wilson was selected for the honor from 12 distinguished nominees.

For more than 30 years, Wilson has been a trusted voice on energy efficiency and environmentally responsible design and construction. "Alex is the best example I know of the adage 'It's amazing what you can accomplish when you don't care who gets the credit,'" said USGBC President and CEO Rick Fedrizzi. "...When it comes to visionary, Alex is the real deal, and this award is well-deserved."

Wilson has not decided how the $50,000 grant will be used, but it will certainly go toward furthering his lifelong mission to make the world a better place. Wilson welcomes comments on
his blog or via Twitter to help him identify the greatest opportunities to tackle environmental challenges in the design and construction industry.
