EDR Staff pitches in for USGBC La’s Green Apple Day of Service

Eskew+Dumez+Ripple staff members Kim Tseng, Adam Martin and Ian O’Cain were among the 145 volunteers across the State of Louisiana to participate in the Green Apple Day of Service—a national event hosted by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) intended to get students, teachers, parents, elected officials and volunteers to support healthy, sustainable schools and communities through public service.

This year, six sites across Louisiana were identified with four located in New Orleans parish including: Center for Sustainable Engagement and Design, the Clark Prep School, the Green Charter School, and Langston Hughes Academy.

EDR staff worked on the renovation of a traditional New Orleans-style duplex located at 5227 Chartres St. in the Lower Ninth Ward/Holy Cross neighborhood which will eventually become the Center for Sustainable Engagement and Design’s (CSED) Community Education Center. The work was led by CSED’s project manager, Vincent Fedeli, and, together with a handful of dedicated volunteers from Hands On New Orleans and the Louisiana Green Corps, demolished an interior wall and salvaged the framing and sistering joists; and repaired part of the front porch.
