LaFayette Housing Authority
LaFayette Sustainable Housing
Lord Aeck Sargent worked with the City of LaFayette Housing Authority to develop 30 sustainably-designed two- and three- bedroom rental apartments.
The housing units are designed in a single-story duplex format on two sites near the heart of the City of Lafayette, a small community in Northwest Georgia. The units are owned and managed by the housing authority.
The sustainable strategies employed on the two sites include: pervious paving, innovative storm water management, recycled materials, advanced framing, spray-foam insulation, high-efficiency split systems, heat pump electric water heating, low-VOC Paints and coatings, reflective roofing, WaterSense plumbing fixtures and an EnergyStar lighting package.
The team developed the house plans, site plans and the outdoor amenity areas to encourage a sense of community, walkability and a connection to the surrounding neighborhood. The project is certified LEED-H Silver.
