PATH - A Public Private Partnership for Advancing Housing Technology

Baltimore, Maryland

Demonstration Site: Baltimore Habitat for Humanity Rehab

Final Case Study Report [.pdf, 672 KB] August 2005

Habitat for Humanity--the nonprofit international organization that engages volunteers and would-be homebuyers in programs that emphasize sweat-equity and self-help--has new home construction and rehabilitation projects taking place all across the U.S. Habitat's volume of work, and PATH's interest in introducing new technologies and building products, converged in this Baltimore project featuring PATH technologies and performance objectives. Working with the Chesapeake Habitat for Humanity affiliate, PATH provided technical and sustainability support for this project.

A home at 500 Rosehill Terrace in Baltimore was selected by the Habitat for Humanity/PATH team as a project site. PATH worked with Habitat to optimize HVAC performance, conserve energy through sustainable design, incorporate PATH technologies, and help ensure energy- and resource-efficient construction practices.

The construction of the rehabilitated housing was managed by the local Habitat affiliate, with PATH support. Once complete, PATH conducted testing and evaluation of selected dwelling units and their systems and components as appropriate.
