Affordable By Design? Exploring ‘Durability’ in Affordable Housing
About this Event
Organizations that operate affordable housing need a building that is efficient and durable and which meets all the essential safety and health requirements of the residents who live there. Innovations in building design and construction can help organizations achieve the goal of providing affordable housing in perpetuity.
This symposium will explore how future building design and construction practices can be informed by the experiences gleaned from currently operating buildings. We have 8 guest panelists that will engage in a discussion panel followed by a Q&A.
The specific theme for this symposium is ‘durability.’ Over the course of the symposium, experiences from builders, developers, and affordable housing organizations will be shared. The aim is to condense the learning that emerges into a Handbook for Durable Design, which can be disseminated to affordable housing organizations and developers.
