Affordable Housing goes electric

A massive redevelopment of the 1940’s-vintage Mercy Hospital campus in Portland, Maine will feature two of the state’s first all-electric affordable housing projects, including 95 units designed to Passive House performance criteria. They will be among the first projects to meet Portland’s Green New Deal energy efficiency standards. Collaboration between the structural and sustainability teams at Thornton Tomasetti, in coordination with CWS Architecture + Interior Design, accelerated accurate energy modeling for thermal bridging and insulation details.

Redevelopment of the three-acre Mercy Hospital campus will make way for Winter Landing (left foreground) and the Equinox (left background) affordable housing developments.
