Tuck-Hinton Architects congratulates Janie Wright, one of our newest team members, who was recently awarded her architectural LEED AP BUILDING DESIGN + CONSTRUCTION credentials.

Janie received funds for this testing process through the Workforce Investment Act, sponsored by the Humphreys County Career Center, in which Michelle McCaleb was Janie’s advisor who aiding in obtaining her training approval.

“My passion for green design developed after my programming semester in design studio.  I developed a theoretical school that taught students about the environment and instituted learning for careers in sustainable design.  This is what inspired me to pursue this concept further in my professional career.  The Career Center didn’t have any funding set aside for education in Green Building practices, now people from Humphreys County and surrounding counties can apply for this funding which will increase their eligibility for green jobs.  This credential was important for me to obtain because this is the way the building industry is headed.  As we become more conscious of our environment and the effect our buildings have on it, we become better designers.” –Janie Wright
