Interview with Bridgid Coulter at 10:31
We are proud to announce that 2008 UCLA Extension Interior Design Program Graduate, Bridgid Coulter, has won the Sustainable Quality Award for Excellence of Stewardship of Natural Environment!
The Sustainable Quality Award Grand Prize is given for combined excellence in three areas: Economic Development, Social Responsibility, and Stewardship of the Natural Environment. Excellence awards are given to businesses with outstanding achievements in any one of the three areas.
Bridgid Coulter Design (BCD) is a residential and commercial interior design firm specializing in full service residential, boutique hospitality and interior design consultation. Sustainable practices are implemented in their design projects as well as the studio in which they work.
Contractors salvage materials from demolitions to reuse in other projects. For example, the company repurposed a concrete driveway, cutting the slab into stepping stones throughout the project, eliminating almost 50 concrete pads from being hauled.
In addition, BCD donates or repurposes any unused furniture for charity projects. For furniture and shipping deliveries, they hire local companies to wrap items in reusable blankets and eliminate the use of disposable packaging.
In their own office, BCD procures all sustainable products from 100% post-consumer recycled copy paper to ZERO VOC paints on their walls.
Bridgid Coulter Design’s mission states:
“We believe great design enhances the health, mood and well-being of all who experience it and will innovate and adjust at every opportunity to create designs that inspire conversation, demand reflection, bring delight and respect the planet.”
