KWA wins Green Globe Award

The Korean Women’s Association:
Leader in Affordable Green Housing

KWA winds Green Globe AwardFor low-income seniors, finding affordable housing on a fixed income can be challenging, so the Korean Women’s Association and their design and construction team set out to build a transit oriented development that exemplifies efficiency, affordability and livability.

Using a highly collaborative process, the team evaluated design decisions for impact on the environment and the operating and maintenance costs of the project. This project’s energy efficiency measures, such as heat pumps, triple glazed windows, and efficient lighting controls, were achieved with the help of technical assistance and incentive funding from Federal Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grants and The Housing Opportunity Fund through King County.
