Affordable Workforce Housing in Clovis.

Collapse Show info

WAMO Studio’s  2013 award-winning design for affordable workforce housing in Clovis, New Mexico is under construction and scheduled for completion by the end of 2015. This project is comprised of five existing buildings (re-hab) and five new buildings for a total of sixty new affordable rental units in the heart of Clovis’ downtown; it is an outstanding example of an urban rejuvenation project with goals of affordability and high-performance in mind.  The units were designed with high energy efficiency in mind.  This objective has been achieved by using Passive House principles for energy saving.   The buildings have ideal solar orientation and ideal shading for summers.  The envelope is designed to eliminate thermal bridges and exceeds local code requirements for building insulation (foundation, wall and roof).  Great attention has been paid to the use of materials to minimize air leakage and to guarantee the long lasting air-tightness of the buildings.  There are shared mechanical and ventilation systems used in the new buildings to contribute to energy conservation.  We will have more updated information as we get closer to completion.
