Friends Center Partners

Our Partners are individuals and companies dealing in materials, services or systems necessary to complete our building and they have pledged to provide them at no charge or very low cost. We are forever indebted to these visionary people who understand the value to society of transforming the construction industry to sustainable practices.

A part of the mission of the Friends Center is to share “green” building technologies with regional architects, engineers, contractors and developers.

Our Partners will be:

  • Recognized with a permanent display in the entry-way
  • Listed with links on our website
  • Profiled at our regularly scheduled open houses
