Since the start of the project, the project team has made significant progress in the schematic design of the development project, including significant work in the areas of transportation design, workforce development, community outreach, energy modeling, building science and construction methodology, local sourcing, and land acquisition. The project team's 3-D model is well-developed, not only as structural volumes, but significant care has been taken to account for sustainability across the 3 axes of environment, economic, and social considerations.
This project will include the design of an affordable multi-use housing community that counters the forces of accelerating climate change over the building's expected lifespan. In which all buildings are designed to maximize energy efficiency, integrate renewable energy and durability, minimize embodied carbon and keep energy demand to a minimum; where knowledge transfer takes place to help people understand new and emerging energy technologies.
Generate jobs through local workforce development programs and increase community engagement without risking quality.
