11th St Residence, Brooklyn, NY

Townhouse Renovation with Solar Panels, Green Roof and Roof Deck

Architecture Services, Construction Management

Build with Prospect designed and managed the construction of a renovation and conversion for this 4-story Brooklyn townhouse. The scope of work included creating a green roof and roof deck, installing photovoltaic solar panels, restructuring an existing bathroom, removing an existing kitchen, opening up the load-bearing walls on the top floor to allow for a more open floor plan, creating a wine cellar and installing an air conditioning system. Environmental considerations included installing a green roof and solar panels, the use of low VOC adhesives and Paints, blue jean insulation, and air sealing in all renovated areas to reduce heat loss and improve fire safety. An energy audit using blower door testing, CO monitoring, and pressure balance testing was conducted to ensure greater overall energy efficiency in the home.
