Norwood’s Emersion Design a leader in the “green” industry

This past May, Nikki Marksberry with Emersion Design sent us a press release announcing the firm’s April 19th award by The Greater Cincinnati Earth Coalition during the Earth Day celebration at Sawyer Point. The company is an architecture firm in the Hamilton County Business Center at 1776 Mentor Avenue. We were pleased to know from Ms. Marksberry and to report that most of the employees and their family members helped clean Upper Millcrest Park during our April 26th Great American Clean Up Day.

Emersion Design was in the news again last week. Ms. Marksberry sent us two links to a story Channel 9 did last week about a recent meeting the United Steels Workers hosted in Evanston to explore how to create “green” jobs to replace the jobs its members are losing in manufacturing. Emersion Design architect Shawn Hesse is in the forefront of this effort, and you can see him interviewed at his work station in this Channel 9 video or read the video’s transcript here. Ms. Marksberry tells us, “Emersion continues to try to lead the way for sustainability making Norwood, Cincinnati, and Ohio at large a greener place to live work and play.”
