Chapter Green steward award for individual leadership 

This new award recognizes significant contributions to the practice of sustainable building and to the Chapter.

Kirk Teske, the first to receive this award, has been integral to this Chapter from its inception and continues to influence and guide the Chapter’s leadership. As a principal with HKS and chief sustainability officer for their global practice, he has spent the majority of his career orchestrating the design of some of the firm’s highest profile projects. His project portfolio includes many locally significant projects including the Sabre Corporate Campus Project, the first LEED Silver certified project in Texas, and the corporate campus for RadioShack – one of the state’s largest LEED Silver certified projects. Kirk is currently Chairman of AIA Dallas and the founding chair of USGBC North Texas – serving in that roll from 2002 through 2004.
