King County Housing Authority Begins Work on Briarwood Housing Complex Project

KCHA (King County Housing Authority) has begun work on building envelope renovations and energy efficiency upgrades valued at $1.7 million to Briarwood in Shoreline, Washington. Briarwood is a public housing complex comprising 70 units for seniors and disabled people. This $1.7 million funding was provided to KCHA by means of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

The funds will be used by KCHA to reduce energy expenses in public housing complex as all as create jobs. This project by KCHA will replace exterior windows, roofing and siding at Briarwood that was built in 1970. The present building envelope is energy inefficient as it has reached the close of its life span.

This three-story building will be enabled with a roofing system that is ENERGY STAR-rated. Upon completion, utility consumption is anticipated to reduce by 28% for fixed-income residents. The project will help in reviving the local economy while producing significant energy savings, cost-savings as well as reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
