Project featured in Medill Reports Chicago

During our recent open house, two students from the Medill School of Journalism shadowed us and our visitors for several hours. Alan and Drew came equipped with the typical notepad and pen, but also some digital recording equipment.

We were interviewed about our deep energy retrofit and our visitors were asked for their impressions and opinions. I was curious to see what the end product would be like.

Alan sent me an e-mail about two and a half weeks ago to let me know that their article was published in the Medill Reports Chicago.

I like how the Alan and Drew put our project into the bigger green building context. The article also includes a video that is fun to watch.
