Edward Acker, AIA, LEED AP
Edward Acker brings his long and varied architectural experience to complex sustainability and green
building issues. Familiarity with real world design and construction conditions informs his green building
consulting work, a value added much appreciated by developers, architects, and end-user clients.
Ed maintained an independent architectural practice in Nyack NY and northern NJ for 25 years. His
practice was a mix of industrial, commercial, and custom residential work, including historic homes. The
firm was born in the energy crisis of the 1970’s. His philosophy then and now is to utilize sustainable
design techniques and integrate design and construction team members whenever possible to achieve
optimum results for the client. He has researched and written numerous technical approach reports for
complex public building and transportation infrastructure projects in the NYC area.
He was the project manager for a Water Conservation Manual for the New York City Department of
Design & Construction (NYC DDC), a 285-page illustrated manual describing water saving strategies
and guidelines for use by designers and DDC project managers for new or renovated, owned or leased
NYC government facilities. The manual is keyed to the NYC Local Law 86, and mandated LEED®
potable water conservation strategies. The manual is in final draft form, and is expected to be published
in 2010. He also wrote the Green Guidelines for Storm Water Management for the 40-acre Poppleton
Neighborhood Planned Redevelopment in Baltimore, MD.
Mr. Acker has edited updates, new material, and enhancements for the Whole Building Design Guide,
www.wbdg.org, a web-based compendium of building design and property development knowledge,
controlled by the National Institute for Building Sciences (NIBS), which advocates an integrated holistic
“whole building” approach to building design. He was the lead coordinator and editor for a new Design
Disciplines section, and the expert author of two Building Types pages; Warehouses and Archive and
Record Storage Buildings.
