Buildings of Excellence: Housing Communities [WEBCAST]
Event Description

Join NYSERDA and BE-Ex for our sixth NYSERDA Buildings of Excellence Gallery Talk, featuring Bushwick Alliance and HELP ONE, two transformative projects in Brooklyn and Buildings of Excellence award recipients.

Last year, the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA) revealed their $40 million Buildings of Excellence competition, recognizing low- and zero-carbon emitting buildings. NYSERDA President and CEO, Alicia Barton, announced the competition during the Buildings of Excellence Launch here at BE-Ex.

The Buildings of Excellence competition is an innovative effort to advance climate action goals across New York State by incentivizing the design, construction, and operation of buildings that improve quality of life with little or no carbon impact. This past October, NYSERDA announced round one award winners for 26 projects in the categories of Early Design, Late Design, Under Construction and Post-Completion Performance Optimization.

In partnership with NYSERDA, the Building Energy Exchange is hosting a series of gallery talks dedicated to a range of design strategies, building systems, and case studies that provide potential pathways to net-zero building performance.

This panel will feature Bushwick Alliance, an all-electric, carbon-neutral, and affordable housing project in Brooklyn, and HELP ONE, a shelter with 195 family shelter units and designed with VRFs, Energy Star appliances, water conserving plumbing fixtures, thick insulation, and LED lighting.
