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: https://elizabethriver.org/thenextwa

Flooding is getting worse each year in the 85th & our region as a whole. As a member of the Joint Subcommittee on Coastal Flooding, I’m committed to finding tangible solutions to tackle sea level rise & mitigate flooding. Loved being back in Richmond today to continue the work!

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.

Moisture Damage is a SERIOUS problem. It can lead to serious health issues and be costly to fix!
.
There are a number of reasons that moisture and condensation can build up inside of your building. Even when running properly, oversight in design coordination can lead to problems.
.
Buildings are a collection of systems, trades have to work together to get the systems to function properly as one. Bringing in a 3rd party consultant like Ecovative Energy will help you create an overall plan to prevent coordination and design problems that lead to damages such as moisture build up. We will also inspect systems during construction to make sure that everything is being installed correctly and performing as planned.
.
Ecovative can also help you fix existing moisture issues by getting to the source and preventing any future damage.
.
The damage caused by moisture problems can be costly to both your wallet and to the occupants' health, spending the money upfront on a building science expert pays for itself over the life of the building!

Let's talk about "Light Pollution"
.
Light pollution is the excessive use of artificial light, this negatively affects the environment by altering natural night conditions. Artificial lighting can have negative health effects on all living creatures, including humans!
.
We require some artificial light for our lifestyle and safety, but by reducing it to only the necessary amount, we can save energy, save money, and reduce our light pollution.
.
Ecovative works with our clients to help them choose more efficient light fixtures and to place them more effectively. These pictures from The Retreat at Harbor Pointe in Norfolk, VA, demonstrate how picking more energy efficient light fixtures can also be stylish and enhance the design of the space!
