The Moraga Barn | LEED Platinum

O U R     P U R P O S E      |     ALTER THE COURSE

“The American, by nature, is optimistic.  He is experimental, an inventor and a builder who builds best when called upon to build greatly.”  – John F. Kennedy

Canyon ConstructionThe historic Moraga Barn, which achieved LEED Platinum Certification through a collaboration with Eco | Consulting US and Canyon Construction, is hosting two great events this month and we are inviting you to join us! Built in 1914, the Moraga Barn is the oldest building in Moraga, which previously served as the city’s hotel, grocery store, telephone switching center and bar until Canyon Construction undertook a renovation in February 2006. Led by a sustainability team that included Eco | Consulting US,  the historic renovation of the barn achieved USGBC’s highest LEED certification with ultra energy and water efficient design, salvaged and sustainably harvested materials, and 100% on-site renewable energy production. As one of the most innovative green buildings in this area, the 3,000 square-foot landmark is a living example of sustainable, healthy and efficient building at its finest. We were honored to be a part of this project, which is why we are excited to invite you to join us these two upcoming events being hosted at the Barn.
