NESEA Green Building Pro Tour Multi-Family Housing: Under Construction Through Final Product
Event Description

During this event, attendees will tour two projects built by hosting company Sunwood Builders: a 13-unit condominium project, which has been complete for less than six months, and a 28-unit co-housing project, which will still be under construction. Because these two projects are being built by the same team, similar design and construction techniques are being used on both, which will give attendees the unique opportunity to see very similar projects in very different stages of development in the same tour.
