We’re excited to announce that the West Broad Street YMCA shade house is a finalist for the AIA Georgia Award in the Design +Innovation, Built Projects category! The full credit goes to our design partners at Greenline Architecture, especially the designer of record Eric O’Neill, and past Emergent VP Keith Howington who was the project manager for the project. Since its completion the shade house has dutifully served the children at the West Broad YMCA as a part of Growing Edge Community Garden, a project funded by Gulfstream Aerospace through their Live Well Be Well grant.
Along with being a finalists, the community structure—built with 75% reclaimed materials—the structure can win the AIA Georgia’s People’s Choice Award, IF enough people vote for the project. Please cast a People’s Choice Award vote for the shade house, and le et the judges know collaborative projects that support community resilience matter!
Thanks must also go to Rives E. Worrell Co./JE Dunn, DIRTT Environmental Solutions, and all of our construction partners! And, of course, thank you West Broad Street YMCA for serving the Savannah community!
