NEW YORK, NY—New York City Economic Development Corporation announced the advancement of two key commitments that seek to revolutionize a green path forward for cleaner construction and low carbon buildings with the launch of the Clean and Circular: Design and Construction Guidelines and the selection of the first design and development teams of the NYC Mass Timber Studio. Key to New York City’s decarbonization efforts, the Guidelines, offer an operational guide to reduce waste and embodied carbon in New York City’s built environment. Additionally, NYCEDC awarded seven design and development teams to participate in the NYC Mass Timber Studio, a first-of-its-kind program in New York City. The technical assistance program is designed to support active mass timber development projects in the early phases of project planning and design. …”We’re excited to see how the Guidelines will help to reduce New York City’s embodied carbon footprint,” said Elijah Hutchinson.
