GO Lab, OPAL Collaboration Wins Lowest Embodied Carbon Honor

This winter, MassCEC, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, asked design firms to submit proposals for all-electric energy retrofits of the triple decker, wood, balloon-framed apartments that went up all over the state in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to house the steady influx of immigrant factory workers arriving from Europe. TimberHP by GO Lab partnered with OPAL, the architecture, research and design firm, on one of thirteen submissions chosen as finalists in the competition. We’re happy to report that our wood fiber, modular retrofit model was honored for having the lowest embodied carbon of any of the competitions’s finalists.

Congratulations team!
