LEED Gold Awards

The 700 East 4th Office project by Fryday & Doyne Architecture was awarded the first LEED Gold LEED-CI project award for Mecklenburg County. This particular renovation required careful control and management of many factors less critical in new construction. Recycling, material reuse, and operation process control play a big factor in obtaining LEED credits in a renovation/reconstruction.

For the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiners Office, Fryday & Doyne Architecture acted as a consultant to provide material selections and specifications directly related to a second LEED Gold Certification..

Historic Charlotte Awards

Nominated by a neighbor in its unfinished state of construction, this project won an Honorable Mention for new construction in a Historic Neighborhood before it was even occupied! The project has been widely lauded in Dilworth for its scale and massing considerations which make a large house look like a bungalow.

Our work at Charlotte’s Old City hall, and work to preserve the Villalonga-Alexander House were responsible for two additional awards.
