Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens Center for Sustainable Landscapes was honored as one of the top ten green projects for 2016 at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2016 National Convention and Design Exposition.

These projects were chosen by the AIA and its Committee on the Environment (COTE) for their design and innovation techniques, integration with the community, land use and effect on site ecology, bioclimatic design, energy and water use, approach to light and air, materials construction, long-life considerations and feedback loops.

We are proud to have provided preconstruction services for The Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) project. The CSL is an education, research, and administration facility designed to be the greenest building in the world. It generates all of its own energy and treats storm and sanitary water captured on-site.

The CSL is the first and only building to meet four of the highest green certifications:

  • The Living Building Challenge
  • LEED Platinum
  • WELL Building Platinum
  • Four-Stars Sustainable SITES

"I wish to express my appreciation to everyone at Massaro CM Services who worked on the PSU-HHD project with us. Each of the individual employees that I dealt with gave the sort of extra effort that exhibits personal pride in the work they do."

-Ben Hartzler, President of Mid-State Roofing and Coating, Inc.

"During the school year, our entire building is being renovated in three different phases and two of those phases are occurring while students are in the building. To this point there has been little disruption to our learning environment given the scope of the work. The two on-site managers are professional, productive, and able to answer my questions as the project moves along. Massaro has my recommendation for this type of work in the future."

-Robert Scherrer, Ed. D., Principal at Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy
