Hobson Place achieves PHIUS+ 2018 pre-certification
As work progresses on phase 2 of Hobson Place, we are excited to share that the project has earned PHIUS+ 2018 pre-certification.
Once completed, Hobson Place will be the first permanent supportive housing project in Washington State to achieve Passive House certification from the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS). Passive House is a rigorous certification protocol that is seen as an important step toward achieving net-zero emissions, i.e. a development that produces as much energy as it consumes.
Located in the North Rainier Hub Urban Village, Hobson Place will offer permanent supportive housing for 177 individuals exiting homelessness. The project combines independent living with wrap-around services – including on-site caseworkers, a computer lab, and a 24,000 sf facility for primary and behavioral healthcare that will serve both residents and the community. The design concept was inspired by the cut glass business that previously occupied the site, as reflected in the lively accent panels that grace the façade.
