Additionally, LRK’s in-house LEED expert Krissy Buck Flickinger was named winner of the Green Leader, Volunteer Award for contributing to USGBC’s mission to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.

“Krissy was awarded this well-deserved recognition as a longtime advocate for USGBC and LEED in Memphis,” said Cindy Zork, USGBC Director of Virginia & Tennessee. “She is primarily responsible for the successful Memphis-based Paper Power program—her dedication has enabled hundreds of Shelby County high schoolers to become exposed to future careers in green building. We’re very proud of her support.”
“We are proud to be recognized by the USGBC, particularly because their vision for sustainable design aligns innately with our firm’s guiding principles,” said Frank Ricks, principal of LRK. “Our portfolio is rooted in creative, collaborative spaces of all sizes and project types that engage people, nurture community, enhance urban life, and will stand the test of time for future generations.”
