JKR Staff Checks out BIAs Green Tour

Marissa here- Yesterday, JKR staff took some time to check out the BIA Green Tour.  We toured our very own 777 South Broad, Montrose Green by Benchdog Design, Bancroft Green and 2000 Delancey.  All projects are currently in the process of seeking LEED Certification.  During the tour, we got to climb a ladder made of reclaimed wood to a green roof covered with sedums, hear about geothermal heating and cooling, and witness the beauty of reclaimed materials.  One of my favorite environmentally friendly techniques of the day was Montrose Green’s rain barrel and rain garden.  Not only was this beautifully detailed, but it allows the house to not have to tie into the City’s storm water system.
