Education and awareness is a very important component of the LEED for Homes program.  To this end, we held a series of open-houses on this project where we invited the public to learn more about how we created the first LEED platinum (pending) townhome renovation in America.

"This fully-renovated townhouse is targeting LEED Platinum and may become the first LEED-certified condominium renovation in the nation… The home features innovations new to Chicago such as a Drain Water Heat Recovery system, along with extensive spray foam insulation, a high-efficiency HVAC system with an Energy Recovery Ventilator and a whole-house HEPA filter, low-VOC materials, locally sourced hardwood floors, and more."
