The Compound is a non-profit founded in 2010 with the goal of turning a derelict forklift factory in the distressed East Baltimore Midway neighborhood into a hub for community engagement and the arts. Today, the vibrant community includes light industrial space for five companies, a performance space, a community garden, a classroom, and a library. Soon, affordable housing will join this mix. Four adjacent, existing rowhouses are to be retrofitted to Passive House level. The design by Quinn Evans Architects has been pre-certified by PHIUS, and is expected to be the first masonry retrofit Passive House in Baltimore City.
Please join BEC-Baltimore for a tour of the project under construction to review the high-performance detailing of existing masonry structures with new construction additions.
One AIA LU is anticipated for attendees.
Space is limited. Non-skid closed-toe shoes are required.
