Engineer's Eye
This project received EarthCraft Multi-family certification and has many "green" features, creating apartments that have already proven to be very energy efficient. The original factory, known as Martinsville Novelty Company, collected and burned the sawdust from its furniture making processes to, in turn, create the steam that provided the heat to dry new wood to make more furniture, to heat the building itself, and to drive the magneto that generated electricity on site to support the rest of the facility. The loft-style apartments include 7 unique townhouse-style units built into the metal-clad Quonset hut building beside the railroad spur.
