Author: David Misner
Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced today that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) approved funding through the High Performance Building Program to assist with costs associated with construction taking place in Montgomery County.
“This project represents an investment into cost-effective and efficient development, energy conservation, and natural resources,” Governor Wolf said. “By integrating reduced energy consumption methods, businesses can see a measurable cost-benefit.”
Be Amazing, LLC will receive a $245,835 grant to assist with the construction of a high performance Goddard School in Plymouth Meeting. The early childhood education facility will achieve LEED gold certification through the U.S. Green Building Council, featuring triple pane windows and doors, full sub-slab insulation, a roof insulation system to meet Passive House standards, daylight harvesting, and a high-efficiency VRF heat pump system with heat recovery. The project is expected to reduce energy consumption by an estimated 732 MBtu annually, and has a total estimated cost of $3,902,681.
The High Performance Building program provides financial assistance in the form of grants and loan funds to underwrite the cost premiums associated with the design and construction or major renovation of high performance buildings in the state.
