YouthBuild Philly Update: Wingohocking Street is Near Completion!

YouthBuild Philly here, reporting live from the 215!   We’re excited to share  that the 2006 and 2008 W. Wingohocking street project  is wrapping up! We are getting closer and closer to completion and that LEED platinum status!

Here’s what we’ve been up to….

The plumbing and electrical systems are now installed.  Whew!

Next up is the duct board. If you guys remember from a previous post, YouthBuild Philly students participated in a duct board demonstration which took place at the Saint-Gobain Malvern Innovation Center.

CertainTeed provided the material and educated us on the value of installing duct board, which is not only to achieve LEED status, but also for the comfort of the new homeowners. Because of this product we are hoping to help the homeowners save money on their heating and air-conditioning bills.

We are so excited to finish these sustainable green homes for the Nicetown community.

Alright guys, enough of this. We’re getting back to work!

Check back soon to see what we’re up to next on Wingohocking Street!
