Thanksgiving is more than one day a year, it’s an entire season to reflect.

The Paladino team has plenty to be thankful for in 2015. Here’s a look back on some of our most memorable accomplishments, and the people and teams who made them possible.

We are thankful for our long-standing relationship with PNC Financial Services Group, a national leader in green building and sustainability. 

A columniation of years of vision and team work, the Tower at PNC Plaza opened in October in Pittsburgh, the greenest high rise in the world.


Vice President Brad Pease was designated a LEED Fellow, GBCI’s most prestigious title given to exceptional professionals in the green building industry.

This honor would not have been possible without the support of Brad’s peers, with special thanks to: Mark Frankel, NBI; Alissa Rupp, The Portico Group; Donna McIntire, US Department of State; Max Zahniser, Praxis Building Solutions; the entire PNC Realty services team, and Tom Paladino.


Director of National Business Development Rachel Sowards was chosen for Building Design + Construction’s 2015 class of 40 under 40, recognizing the rising stars transforming the world of design and construction.

Rachel thanks her team, family and sustainability peers for supporting her in this honor.


Manager Julia Raish and Project Manager Bronwen Carpenter were part of a team awarded first place in the Tacoma Green Infrastructure Challenge in spring.

The rock star group that made it possible included representatives from BergerABAM, Ridolfi, Jacobs Associates, Colorado State University, Conestoga-Rovers and Basalite. 

The depth of your abundance depends on the depth of your gratitude. Thanks to all those around us who made these achievements possible.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Let us know your plans in the comments below.
