Earlier in the month the COO of Elemental Building went for a site visit to check in on a project in the international program, ElementalBuilding-BC (British Columbia, Canada). Though there were some initial concerns, the project is actually coming along nicely. The project leader, Greg Dunn has designed space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, with lots of light, open space and interesting angles. A lot of thought has gone into functional pathways, use and flow- with lots of attention to details. From a green perspective, the project will have sprayed closed-cell foam insulation, and, well, that’s about it. Though I’m sure the lumber was also drawn from local sources and the structure is incredibly solid which will make it extremely durable- an often over-looked green element. Overall, we are really interested in seeing how this project pans out and revisiting it and providing future updates.
Next month we’ll go south of the border to ElementalBuildings- Melaque for a look at what’s developing south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
