Anthony Maschmedt, principal at Seattle-based Dwell Development + Design/Build, was honored today as the Best in Green Young Professional of the Year: One to Watch by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The award was given as part of the association's Best in Green Awards during the NAHB International Builders' Show in Las Vegas.
During the recession, just a year after he founded Dwell Development, Maschmedt decided rather than scraping by he would go big. A green builder, he built the first speculative Built Green 5-Star development in South Seattle. He then built the first spec. net zero energy home, the first spec. Passive House in Seattle, and most recently he built the first Emerald Star home.
Maschmedt serves on the board of Built Green, the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties' residential green building program, and is constantly offering his time to speak at various events.
"Anthony's innovative spirit, his willingness to try new things, including taking risks and his support of the green building industry make him an irreplaceable part, not only of his local community, but the green building community as a whole," said Ray Tonjes, 2018 Sustainability & Green Building Subcommittee Chairman from Austin, Texas. "To achieve what he has in such a brief period of time is nothing short of remarkable."
