Chris Webb awarded LEED Fellow designation

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) recently named Christopher Webb of Chris Webb & Associates in Bellingham to the inaugural class of LEED Fellows.

The LEED Fellow Program is GBCI’s new and most prestigious professional designation that recognizes exceptional contributions to green building and significant professional achievement within the rapidly growing community of LEED professionals.

Webb was among 34 of the world’s most distinguished green building professionals to be selected as LEED Fellows through a peer nomination and portfolio review process. He has an extensive portfolio in LEED project, including such Islandwood, the Common Ground Zero Net Energy affordable housing project on Lopez Island, the Firstenburg Community Center in Vancouver, Wash., and locally the Mathei Place housing project of Kulshan CLT in Fairhaven.

“We are thrilled to bestow the LEED Fellow designation upon these highly accomplished individuals,” GBCI president Peter Templeton said in a press release.  “The Fellows are some of the leading innovators and vanguards of the green building movement, and their bodies of work strongly underscore their commitment to LEED and a sustainable built environment.”

Webb will be recognized with the rest of the 2011 LEED Fellow class at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Toronto October 4-7. For more information on the LEED Fellow program, visit
