Karis Place won a 2012 SAB Award. The SAB jury put it this way:
A difficult program and a modest budget made the pursuit of meaningful sustainability goals particularly challenging in this project for the hard-to-house. The solution successfully integrates the architecture with the environmental performance ambitions through careful envelope design and a variety of passive strategies. As such it provides an example, not just to other publicly-funded housing projects, but to market condominium developments as well.
Blue Camas is proud to have been the Karis Place IDP Facilitator and Primary LEED Consultant (sub-contracted to Recollective), responsible for overall coordination of LEED compliance, documentation, CIRs and Certification.
