A different shade of Green in Southie
Posted by on

If you haven't heard about or seen "The Greening of Southie" you might want to check it out.

The documentary follows the construction of the Macallen building in South Boston and the efforts to win Gold LEED certification during the design and construction of the project. It was on the Sundance channel last night.

Through interviews with the developers, project managers, material suppliers and workers on site, they show you what's involved in green building.

They also give some interesting insight into how people react to the concept. Remember, some of this footage was taken a few years ago and the level of education and acceptance about green building has increased, no doubt.

You can order a copy of the film on DVD through the producer's website.

Here's a little clip from YouTube.
