Paige Colao, GPRO: O&M, LEED: GA

Director of Strategy & Analysis

Paige collects, analyzes, and manages the Pittsburgh 2030 District’s data, as well as providing technical assistance. She helps other programs within GBA on data management and analysis needs.


Paige’s passion for nature and the protection and preservation of natural resources ground her career in sustainability. At GBA, Paige researched multiple building rating systems to create a survey which collects indoor air quality data at an individual level. She has also created a corresponding scorecard based on respondents answers. She analyzed and reported on the largest data set in the 2019 Pittsburgh 2030 District Progress Report.

During her time at Allegheny College, she conducted research on Cob building—an ancient style of building which uses organic materials—for her senior thesis project. Paige also played a role in helping to establish a food hub and mobile farmer’s market in Meadville, PA that connects local producers with the community. Prior to GBA, she served as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Crawford County, PA, where she focused on the opioid epidemic—researching causes of addiction, strategies of prevention and intervention, and ways to educate the community.


Paige graduated from Allegheny College with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and a minor in Communication Arts. She is GPRO: O+M certified as of September 2018, and a LEED: Green Associate since August 2019.
