Delivering Dignity Through High Performance Affordable Multifamily Construction
Event Description

Affordable multifamily construction poses both unique challenges and opportunities for healthy indoor environments and energy, water, and material efficiency. While scheduling and cost often dictate specifications, many housing authorities and lenders require demonstrated efficiency for funding. Sustainable developments deliver safety, dignity and opportunity. This presentation demonstrates from design through construction how an affordable developer progressively improved with each consecutive affordable housing development while implementing high performance building standards.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the selection process of high performing assemblies and systems.
  • Learn the correlation between state climate initiatives, affordable housing loans and program requirements
  • Identify opportunities through savings, decreased resident turnover and increased quality of residents experiences
  • Recognize lessons learned and best practices toward standardization
