Green Communities: Designing Efficient, Affordable Multifamily Housing

The Enterprise Foundation will be holding a Live Online Event that may be of interest to those who are involved in Green design.

Green Communities: Designing Efficient, Affordable Multifamily Housing
Tuesday, May 8, 2007
90 minutes, beginning 2:00pm ET/ 11:00am PT

Nationally, affordable multifamily housing can be more efficient than single-family, but most is overheated and poorly built, and as such, over-consumes fuel. In this event, we will look at the 8 to 10 main design flaws that many teams miss in multifamily design, and the solutions to avoiding this in future. Participants will walk away with the smart design differences that cost nothing to very little, that are the first step in high performance affordable housing design.

Expected Outcomes

Learn how to build it best, before you do anything else.
Learn about design flaws to avoid in your future green multifamily affordable housing projects.
Gather no- and low-cost multifamily design ideas.
Who should attend?
Developers, designers and others interested in building efficient multifamily housing

Presented by:

What is a Live Online Event?

Live Online Events (Webinars) reach people spread among many locations. They involve participants gathering at a specific time on a specific Website to take a class, usually from their own desks. The visual part of the presentation appears on participants’ computer screens. This can involve slides, documents, web tours, and software demonstrations. The sound is handled with a telephone conference call. This enables verbal dialogue, questions, and answers. To participate, you may use a PC or Mac computer. You must have a Web browser, and Internet Explorer 5 or higher is recommended. You must be able to be on the Internet and speak on the phone at the same time.
