North Main’s new LEED-certified building

IMG_0832Neighbors got an in-depth look at the process and beautiful results of new “green building” techniques used to rehabilitate the new Home and Hospice Care of RI facility at 1085 North Main Street at our Tuesday evening  (May 26) preview tour. If you missed it, you may want to attend Home & Hospice Care’s public Grand Opening on Sunday, May 31 at 2PM.

Keith Davignon and Jamie Hughes of Vision 3 Architects and Greg Post and Greg Pezza of New England Construction showed how a careful use of recycled and low-impact materials, energy-efficient design and innovative technologies helped ensure that this building will be Rhode Island’s first LEED-certified medical facility when it opens for staff and patients in June.

Home and Hospice Care of Rhode Island provides end-of-life and bereavement care for terminally ill people and their families. The new building will provide private rooms for 24 patients and flexible space for  administrators and caregivers. H&HCRI staff also travel to homes, hospitals and nursing homes to care for about 400 patients in total at any time. Continue reading
