>Congratulations Go Architectural Design, PLLC, and Radio Free ENC!


Although I didn’t attend the Chamber ribbon cutting on Thursday, September 29th, I stopped by to see Sarah Afflerbach, Owner of Go Architectural Design, PLLC, before their grand opening.

I followed her and her husband, Mike’s, 1202 Pollock Street – A Green Renovation Blog which chronicled the stages of their building being renovated into a green building. Mike Afflerbach owns Radio Free ENC. Both businesses occupy the same building.

Go Architectural Design, PLLC
Sarah expressed that her green opportunities goal is to, “highlight sustainability’s where we can by making the right material choices, building location, indoor air quality, etc. By taking minor steps, it will make a difference in the long run.”

“Irina Skalova is our interior designer and she provides interior design services that also focus on good indoor air quality and healthy environments as well as being fabulously designed”, Sarah Afflerbach.

As a LEED Certified Architect, Sarah provides LEED Certification consulting on new construction or building renovations. She is also a RESNET Certified Energy Professional. She provides energy audits with the “Blower Door Test” to save money on people’s utility bills.

Sarah showed meet a neat gadget that I think everyone should have (renters or homeowners). The Energy Detective (TED). It measures the consumption of energy you use. When was the last time you checked your meter outside your house? Me…I don’t remember. But I’m going to get one of these!

“GO Architectural Design, PLLC is an Architectural, and Interior Design firm focusing on residential and commercial projects. Our suite of services can take your project from design through the construction phase to completion, or provide stand alone services to meet your needs.” – quote taken from their website.
