Mulkey Engineers & Consultants Building Structures Intern Receives LEED Accreditation

Mulkey Engineers & Consultants is pleased to announce that Dan Hesington, building structures intern, has recently received his Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) AP accreditation through the U.S. Green Building Council.

Hesington, a senior at Penn State University, is obtaining a bachelor of architectural engineering with an emphasis in structural design. In his third summer interning for the firm, he is working on a variety of structural projects and gaining tangible experience in both the design and consulting aspect of engineering. “It feels great to pass both my fundamentals of engineering and LEED AP exam before graduating from college,” says Hesington.

LEED accreditation is a designation that demonstrates an individual’s thorough understanding of green building principles and the LEED Green Building Rating System. The building rating system encourages and accelerates the global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
