USGBC Minnesota Dynamic Green Home – Kraus-Anderson and Pope Volunteer Day
Monday, September 29th, 2014
Pope Architects and Kraus-Anderson Construction Company partnered together to support the USGBC Minnesota Chapter’s Dynamic Green Home project.
The group partnered with USGBC Minnesota to spend the day volunteering at a home in St. Paul’s Frogtown Neighborhood. The collaboration of USGBC-MN and the Greater Frogtown Community Development Corporation is furthering sustainable upgrades on homes in the area.
The entire effort has focused on upgrading three areas of rehab in homes to a more sustainable building model:
- Landscaping with a focus on water management, native species and ease of maintenance and use
- Interior painting with a focus on no VOCs and longevity of appearance
- Flooring with a focus on reducing allergens, VOCs and materials (wood floors were rehabbed)
