The U.S. Green Building Council honored the 2005 recipients of the Leadership Awards, at USGBC's Annual Greenbuild Conference and Expo on Nov. 10 in Atlanta, at a ceremony to be held at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, Ga.

The LEED individual award went to Paul von Paumgartten of Johnson Controls for his many years of service in the development of the LEED for New Construction and for existing buildings rating systems as a member and as chair of LEED committees, and for his leadership within Johnson Controls in brining the message of sustainability to their customers. Von Paumgartten formed an internal "Green Team" that includes more than 50 people from Johnson Controls who have become LEED Accredited Professionals.

The Research award went to Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Office Buildings (AEDG-SO). The AEDG is a joint effort of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) and the New Buildings Institute (NBI). AEDG-SO was recognized for their outstanding effort in developing the Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Office Buildings, a significant contribution helping to advance green building.

"The recipients of the 2005 Leadership Awards are to be congratulated," said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and founding chair of USGBC. "The organizations and individuals represented are among the most influential green building leaders and their achievements are bedrock to our mission of transforming the built environment."

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
