Commercial Projects | Prairie Pointe Townhomes

Affordable rental development in Greensburg, Kansas consisting of 16 two-bedroom apartments and a community room. The development came about after the town was devastated by a tornado in May 2007. The project was completed in July 2008 and currently houses both families and elderly individuals on limited incomes.

Environmental Aspects The project was an in-fill development on land that used to be the old high school in Greensburg. The buildings were built with 2x6 exterior walls with blown-in cellulose insulation. The concrete slab was constructed using a "floating floor" design to provide foam insulation from the inside concrete and outside stem wall. Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs), low-flow toilets, showerheads, and aerators were used in all apartments. Energy star appliances, when available, were used in the kitchen and laundry room. High efficiency air source heat pumps were used and the apartments achieved an overall HERS Index Score of 64. All interior walls of the apartments were painted with low-VOC paint and bio-based tile was used in the LEED certified 8-plex. Drought resistant landscaping and turf was used on the site as well as an efficient irrigation system.

Award Winning Prairie Pointe Townhomes are the first LEED Platinum Certified Affordable Housing in the state of Kansas, and third in the United States!
