The Green Institute’s Phillips Eco-Enterprise Center (PEEC)

Project Overview

The Phillips Eco-Enterprise Center (PEEC) connects an under-employed labor force to employers in ecologically sound businesses. Rooted in community resistance to the county’s plans to construct a solid-waste transfer station at this site, local activists succeeded in building a base for better employment opportunities. The PEEC is seen as an expression of the Green Institute’s mission, which is to “create community-based models to protect and nurture our natural and urban environment through education and sustainable economic development.” Sustainable design elements on the 3.4 acre inner-city brownfield site redevelopment project include geo-exchange heating and cooling, sun-tracking daylighting, air-to-air energy recovery, and salvaged steel joists, wood and brick.
