The Seebaldt Pilot honored with two global sustainability awards

It Starts At Home and studio[Ci] LLC celebrated two major recognitions for the Seebaldt Pilot, a project funded by the US Department of Energy that is implementing a Net Zero Energy (NZE) district in Detroit/48204 serving Low and Moderate Income (LMI) households.

The LafargeHolcim Foundation of Zurich, Switzerland honored the project as a model for sustainable, grassroots development, issuing a Gold Award for North American projects last October 2017, and a Bronze Award for the global category in March 2018. A neighborhood party was held on July 14th to allow local residents and others to celebrate and visit a prototype installation on Seebaldt Street which generates solar power, collects rainwater and encourages urban farming.
