Fairfax County honored Davis Carter Scott with their 2014 Environmental Excellence Award in the Business category. The Environmental Excellence Awards recognize County residents, organizations, businesses and County employees who are dedicated to sustainability and support County environmental initiatives.   The accolade recognizes Davis Carter Scott’s dedication to creating new buildings, spaces and places that are exemplars of sustainable practice; upgrading existing buildings to higher levels of performance; designing healthy spaces in which people live and work; and creating green communities that lie easy on the earth.

In selecting DCS Design for the award, Linda Burchfiel, an At-Large member of the Environmental Quality Advisory Council, cited over four decades of sustainable design, community and industry outreach through an annual GreenWeek Symposium, and ongoing participation in County led efforts such as Chairman Bulova’s Private Sector Energy Task Force as key contributions recognized by the Advisory Council.

Utilizing an integrated team-oriented project approach, DCS has worked closely with leading developers, building owners, consultants, general contractors and County staff to design over 13 Million square feet of space designed for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEEDTM) certification. Spaces include Offices, Civic Buildings, Multi-Family Housing, and Education Facilities.
