The Elizabeth River Project's Pru and Louis Ryan Resilience Lab has just been recognized as one of the best new and planned building projects in the region.

HRACRE - Hampton Roads Association for Commercial Real Estate presented the Excellence Award last Thursday to the facility's designers, Work Program Architects of Norfolk, for the project concept: A nationally significant demo of attainable ways to live and work in the urban flood plain, despite rising seas, while keeping the river in mind.

"So validating," said Sam Bowling, lead architect. "It shows that resilient, sustainable - and most of all attainable - design is very much appreciated and supported by the Hampton Roads commercial real estate community."

We appreciate YOU! We're 97 percent to goal with the campaign for this and other regional projects. Put us over the top with the Next Wave campaign:

Buffalo’s first, code approved grass parking lot at Five Points Bakery is one year old today.
It can absorb 3” of rainfall keeping water out of our storm sewers.
It reduces heat island effect, provides habitat for insects, helps mitigate global warming by converting carbon dioxide into oxygen, looks nicer for our neighbors, helps to filter the water to keep our oceans cleaner. its cheaper than concrete, stronger than asphalt, and so much more.
We are so happy and thankful to be able to keep pioneering in Buffalo.
More to come!

Did you know that commercial and residential buildings are responsible for almost 40% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the U.S.?
This means that when you design and build a building, YOU can make a big difference in our country's carbon footprint! YOU have the power to help curb climate change!! 💪
We do not have the option of going without buildings that we need for work and shelter, BUT we can build better, more efficient buildings!
To do so, we need to consider the BIG PICTURE: the building products, the construction process, the energy and water usage of the building, and the lifespan of the building and it's pieces.
Ecovative can help assist you at every step of the process, from planning to construction to efficiency testing to certifications. Contact us today (link in bio) to see how we can help you and your clients build greener!

Today we are taking a look at the Airtight Drywall Approach.
As the old saying goes- "It's all in the details". Many people do not realize how much energy is lost in between layers of construction materials. Drywall joints are small but they can be a real weakness and this needs to be addressed during the building phase.
Ecovative helps alert architects and builders to issues like this early in the process so that incorporating techniques to seal up the drywall can be factored into the construction budget and schedule. This small step has a HUGE impact on the energy efficiency of the building and can save building owners and tenants a lot of money in the long run.
