Educating the Next Generation of Sustainable Building Design Professionals

Goodwin Company was proud to welcome students from Will Zajac’s architectural design studio at the University of Florida (UF) in Gainesville. Goodwin’s marketing director and resident historian, Jeffrey Forbes, gave the group a behind the scenes tour of Goodwin’s lumber mill.  Students learned about how River-Recovered® and reclaimed wood is sourced, processed and incorporated into sustainable design projects. Heart pine and heart cypress is not only ideal for traditional building, but these woods are trending in contemporary design.  Reclaimed wood feature walls are becoming especially popular in office buildings, high rises and ultra-modern living spaces.
