Conservation pioneer named Energy Engineer of the Year.
Copeland, senior vice president and principal at Manhattan-based engineering firm Goldman Copeland Associates, has long been an advocate for energy conservation and efficiency in his 40-plus years of experience. He worked on some of the first solar collector designs in New York City and used early computer modeling techniques to accurately project energy conservation opportunities in existing commercial buildings.
"It is an honor to receive this award," says Copeland. "With the growing specter of global warming adversely affecting generations to come, we all need to redouble our energy conservation efforts."
A Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Accredited Professional, Copeland's current projects include the Battery Park City Community Center (LEED platinum level), a sustainable residential project for Common Ground Community, designing multiple building cogeneration plants and developing strategies to reduce utility peak steam use.
The Pitt Street project's sustainable design recently won a New York City Green Building Design Award--a competition co-sponsored by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 2.
Copeland has received many awards over the years. His recent accomplishments include: receiving the AEE-NY Chapter's 2005 Energy Engineer of the Year Award; receiving first place at the ASHRAE 2005 Region 1 Technology Award; and designing the HVAC system at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church. The firm recently completed worked with architects Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum (HOK) to qualify the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island as a LEED certified Building.
