Maureen Guttman, AIA, is President of the Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP). A licensed architect with over 25 years of experience in energy-efficient and green building design, Ms. Guttman oversees a nationwide campaign to support the adoption and implementation of today’s model energy codes. In addition, she directs several technical, outreach and advocacy projects to help various stakeholder groups realize the benefits of energy codes and efficient buildings. Prior to launching as a stand-alone organization in June 2014, BCAP was an initiative of the Alliance to Save Energy.
Prior to joining the Alliance, Guttman spent four years as Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Governor’s Green Government Council, where she managed programs that provided over $34 million in consumer incentives for energy efficiency projects, developed construction incentive programs that required high-performance building standards, and other policies that encouraged efficiency and green buildings. Guttman has served on several energy and green construction code development boards, the Pennsylvania Green Energy Loan Fund Advisory Board, and the International Code Council Sustainable Building Technology Committee. In 2010, Guttman was awarded the President’s Award by the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in recognition of a career dedicated to advancing building code adoption and enforcement, and incorporation of sustainability into regulated building practices. Guttman holds a Bachelor’s in Architecture from Carnegie Mellon University.
