Comment | More

The Green Guide for Health Care (GGHC) has named Kumkum M. Dilwali, MS, LEED AP, senior director of GGHC, described as a best-practices guide for healthy and sustainable building design, construction, and operations for the health-care industry.

 

GGHC also announced that Adele Houghton, former GGHC program manager, has launched Adele Houghton Consulting, a sustainability consulting company specializing in solutions for the design and construction industry, developers, non-profits, and government agencies seeking to integrate health and environmental concerns into building, planning, and policy.

 

In her tenure with the Green Guide, Houghton effectively managed the organization’s expanding initiatives and played a pivotal role in the release of the Green Guide Version 2, managing both the pilot process and release of the Green Guide Operations tool.

 

Dilwali was most recently director of safety at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA, where she launched the hospital’s first green-operations program, “Emerson in the Green,” in 2008. She also has worked as senior scientist and project executive at Environmental Health and Engineering in Newton, MA, where she managed complex institutional projects in the building sciences, oversaw healthcare compliance, led high-performance building design and operations efforts for clients, and conducted technical evaluations of the engineered environment. She also participated in the nationwide pilot effort of the Green Guide for Health Care. She has a BS degree in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a master’s degree in environmental health management from the Harvard School of Public Health.

 

The Green Guide for Health Care, a project of Health Care Without Harm and Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems, is available as a free download from the website located at www.gghc.org.
