“At the heart of all my work is my passion, passion for historic restoration, preservation and sustainability”
My company, Sorgente Group of America, proudly leads the way in innovative, ecologically responsible construction.
Each one of our Giglio Projects is a labor of love. The undertaking to revitalize these beautiful landmarks is one of our absolute goals, and with our 60 White Street project, we really wanted to push the sustainability aspect, which is such an important and critical issue in all of our lives.
We believe in breathing new life to old structures, and in the re-use of existing materials. We rely upon locally-sourced finishes, such as regional reclaimed wood, stone, brick, metal and more, and the expertise of local craftsmen when completing our historic restoration projects.
These buildings are carefully altered to achieve a high standard of energy efficiency, by building a very strong and tight insulation envelope.
There are so many things that we have learned and are still learning about sustainability and the crucial role that energy efficiency plays in sustainable development, which is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
I believe that this is the future within development, and at Sorgente Group of America we won’t be building any differently.
