Our March Project Showcase event will feature Salem Heights, a 283-unit affordable housing community located in Salem, Massachusetts. Julie Klump (Preservation of Affordable Housing) will join us to discuss the ambitious deep energy retrofit and the challenges faced during the project. These challenges led to unique solutions and eventually became unexpected opportunities in terms of energy efficiency, resident comfort and health as the project team worked to meet the Phius standard.
Julie Klump is Vice President for Design and Building Performance at POAH, responsible for design and energy efficiency for development projects and the owned portfolio. She assists POAH in the acquisition process with building investigation, energy budgeting, scope development and cost estimates. She works with POAH’s Development Project Managers and Asset Managers to engage the project team (architect, engineer, clerk, etc.) for rehabilitation of new acquisitions and/or POAH owned properties (including the implementation of energy efficiency programs). For new construction, she oversees design development and construction, integrating green and sustainable design.
