WORKSHOP8’s high profile Paisan Green Community project, has been presented at several conferences across the US, most notably at HUD’s Going Green: Intelligent Investment for Public Housing conference in Boston in July 2012. Paisano Green Community is the first NetZero, fossil fuel free, LEED Platinum, affordable senior housing project in the United States. This 73 unit project is built on a 4.2 acre site, adjacent to the major border crossing between El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico.

To disseminate green design best practices to housing authorities around the country, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is assembling a website with case studies of energy efficiency programs implemented by public housing authorities from around the country. At HUD’s request, WORKSHOP8 and Sustainably Built prepared a white paper outlining the best practices in delivering sustainability and green design in affordable housing.

The 13-page white paper describes the energy efficiency strategies—both passive and active—that are included in the project. Sustainably Built put together a comparison of the building design versus the IECC 2009 code requirement and modeled the energy consumption of a typical one bedroom unit as built at Paisano Green Community versus a unit built to base code standards.
