Miller Hull is working with the Matt’s Place Foundation to provide hope and housing for families with ALS.
Client Matt's Place Foundation
Size 1,561 SF
EMission Zero Offset 15 tCO2e
In collaboration with Matt’s Place, a foundation that provides housing and support to those with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Miller Hull is donating design services to develop and construct the foundation’s second ground-up project. This prefabricated case-study house is meant to push the boundaries of accessible design and test new methods of construction for future Matt’s Place houses. Currently under construction, this net-zero energy residence will be built with CLT panels and will incorporate cutting edge technology for adaptable living, including home control systems capable of being used solely by the occupants eye movements. Most importantly, the design of the house allows patients and families to stay together as the disease progresses, offering comfort and dignity as they endure untold hardship.
This project is part of our 1+ program. For more information on the program, visit our Social Equity page.
In 2021, Miller Hull offset 16,679 tCO2e (tons of carbon) of seven projects as part of our recently launched EMission Zero initiative — a program announced in 2021 targeting the elimination of greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment. A major component of EMission Zero is Miller Hull’s commitment to voluntarily purchase Green-E certified carbon offsets to cover the embodied emissions of each built project upon completion.
