David's work toward the greening of building codes over the past dozen years was recently recognized by the ICC, which named him and his organization as 2007 Affiliate of the Year. His work was previously honored with an invitation to contribute a regular column in the ICBO's Building Standards magazine, and later in ICC's Building Safety Journal. He has served on the Board of Directors of the USGBC, and chaired the USGBC's "Greening of the Codes" Committee. He has reached thousands of code officials through his work, creating positive, lasting change of real magnitude. "The Development Center for Appropriate Technology works to enhance the health of the planet and our communities by promoting a shift to sustainable construction and development through leadership, strategic relationships, and education."And that doesn't even come close to saying the half of it. The most important things I've learned from David over the years are all about building, but don't necessarily have anything to do with building buildings.
