G2LD was honored to have been chosen to consult on the Galveston Historical Foundation's Green Revival House. The Green Revival is a joint project of Galveston Historical Foundation and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The project took a 1000 sq. ft. historical shotgun house, which had been knocked off its foundation by the storm surge in Hurricane Ike, and rehabilitate it into a state-of-the-art (yet historically sensitive) LEED Platinum residence. The house was to be equipped with state-of-the art, energy efficient LED lighting and controls, along with solar panels and a bird-friendly wind turbine in the back yard to generate power. Rainwater is harvested for irrigating the carefully thought out landscaping, and permeable paving reduces storm water runoff.
