  1. It's ironic that the green building plaque is placed in front of a wall that has been tooled. It's a longshot that it's lime putty and river sand like it should be. And even if it is, striking a joint sinks the aggregate and floats the binder to the front. Many of the benefits of the lime putty mortar would have been lost by striking like that.

    I wish these people caught up in the greenwashing would focus less on short term energy efficiency and gizmos, and instead think about the longevity and repairability of the building as the ultimate means to sustainability. It has been shown that most load-bearing masonry buildings are capable of operating at the same rate of energy consumption as a new building with the minimum level Leed certification.
