Download AVA's Green Building Tour App!
As of December 9, 2011, AVA Gallery and Art Center has what is
believed to be the very first application—or “app”— focusing on a “green”
building project, namely the initiatives that were taken in 2006-2007 to make
the renovation of AVA’s Carter-Kelsey Building a LEED (Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design) Gold-Certified project.
We proudly invite you to click
here and download the Free AVA LEED App to your iTouch, iPhone or iPad.
Special thanks go to Barbara Jones and Eric Richardson for their
conceptual and technical development of this project; to Patrick Luteran, 2010
AVA intern and an architecture student, for developing part of the verbiage
used in this app; to C. Stuart White, Jr., AIA, for all his professional advice
and for the writing of specific segments; to Brandy Zarle and Tim Rush, New
York City-based actors who, while performing this fall at Shaker Bridge Theatre
in Enfield, New Hampshire, donated their time and expertise to record
voice-over for part of the app’s audio; and to the Highfield Foundation for
funding this project.
Thanks to the support of Systems Plus Computers, curious
visitors can also take the AVA LEED tour on iPods that are available, and can
be signed out for loan, from the AVA office.
