flat - [flât] An apartment on one floor of a building.
HOW and WHY did we put Eco in Flats?
- We started by recycling the four historic buildings that make up EcoFlats, built over 100 years ago. Instead of tearing them down, creating more waste, and using more materials, we reused them.
- We recycled 40% of the demo waste from these existing buildings.
- We completed the project with finishes and features that have minimal impact on the environment.

Pervious Pavers Parking Lot

Heat Island Roofing
Benefits of cool roofs include reduced building heat-gain and saving on summertime air conditioning expenditures. By minimizing energy use, cool roofs do more than save money – they reduce the demand for electric power and resulting air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
