Woodlawn Center South has been selected as the ‘Multi-Family’ category winner for the 2013 Residential Energy Efficiency Award by the State and Local Energy Report, a quarterly magazine that focuses on energy-related issues. The project was lauded as an excellent example of what organizations can achieve with creative thinking, new technologies, and dedication.
The 67 apartments at Woodlawn Center South, the first building of the multiphase redevelopment of the former Grove Parc Apartments, was constructed to be both attractive and sustainable. The buildings were designed to be energy efficient and environmentally responsible, including super insulated slab walls and roofs, low U-value (low energy loss) windows, and an air-tight building envelope. Outside, 100% of all storm water is retained on site for irrigation of planting beds and shrubs, and does not enter the city’s sewer system.
