Florida Green Building Coalition Elects New President
The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC), the leading certifier of green projects in the state, announced Barry Faske of Hollywood, Fla. has been elected president.
With an exclusive focus on Florida, FGBC is by far the largest certifier of residential and commercial construction, master-planned communities and local governments in the Sunshine State with more than 21,400 since 2000.
Faske, of Faske Enterprises, has played an active role in seeking to create a better environment for future generations in Florida for many years. He has been an active member of FGBC for 10 years, on the Board of Directors since 2016, elected FGBC President for 2019 and again in 2020. He has also been instrumental in revitalizing the FGBC Legislative Committee to work on issues of importance to the organization.
U.S. Army Major (Ret.) Bill Kachman of DeLand will serve as FGBC vice president, Real Estate Broker Jeannette Moore, owner of Green Florida Properties in St. Augustine, is the secretary and Miami architect Arturo Griego, owner of G3 AEC, is treasurer.
FGBC’s five certifications provide pathways to green building and sustainability such as national and international standards like USGBC LEED and Green Globes that also move contractors towards environmentally friendly building.
