Congratulations to the Western Green Award recipients!
Physical Plant organized the second annual Western Green Award and hosted a reception for the recipients on April 2, 2009.
The selection committee had a very difficult task in narrowing the field. A total of 30 nominations were submitted - up by nearly 50% from the year before - and two outstanding submisisons were selected.

Denis O'Carroll, WGA Recipient
Dr. O’Carroll has been involved in a number of initiatives that support positive environmental outcomes and a sustainable environment. He joined Western in 2005 and immediately became involved in the new engineering green building design (CMLP building) as the course coordinator for fourth year civil and environmental engineering students developing preliminary designs for the new building. The goal of this project was to have a building “designed by students for students”. <Read more>
