Modern Richmond tours Ecologic on Wednesday evening:
Slated for LEED Gold certification, this green building products retailer offers a wide range of environmentally preferable products from a rehabilitated warehouse in the heart of Richmond’s Fan District. This project exemplifies the benefits and merits of breathing new life into existing building stock (as opposed to more green-field development) while integrating appropriate technology to enhance long-term value in the urban and semi-urban context. Solar energy along with healthy building practices compliment the passive qualities and light industrial character of this early 20th century brick masonry building.
Owner Stephanie Payne Ackermann and Architect Patrick Farley will be speaking at 6:20 pm about the building as well as current product offerings.
Modern Richmond exchanges are free events, but we suggest a $5.00 (cash) donation at the door.
