Project Description

Net-Zero-Energy Development (New Orleans, LA)

In 2006, Raj Parikh and the staff at the firm were the engineers behind the winning submission for Global Green’s Sustainable Design Competition for New Orleans, providing structural and MEP consulting on a net-zero energy development for the Holy Cross Neighborhood after Hurricane Katrina.

In just a few weeks, the team was able to design a full complex, including affordable single and multi-family housing, a community center, recycling center, bus stop, daycare center, public green spaces, and a vegetable garden. Every building and space was designed with the residents’ quality of life in mind, resulting in energy efficient, weather-resilient, and locally-sourced structures that maximize system utility and performance.
