In 2010, the Pinwheel Group was selected as project consultant to develop content and graphics for the NYC Green House toolkit: an introductory educational program being launched by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD). Supported by funding from HSBC in partnership with the Community Preservation Corporation (CPC), the program will enable multi-family building owners and managers to cost-effectively retrofit, operate and maintain their buildings to maximize efficiency, safety, health and quality of life for residents.

Educational resources are being provided in three mediums:

  • In-person training sessions coordinated by HPD
  • Take-home, hard-copy tool kits provided at trainings and HPD Offices
  • Easy-to-use online resource center and website hosted by CPC

Through these three vehicles, building owners and managers will be able to find useful information on best practices and financial resources available to help them:

  • Improve indoor air quality in their buildings
  • Save energy in summer and winter
  • Reduce stormwater runoff
  • Offer residents recycling options
  • Implement green cleaning and maintenance

Pinwheel is proud to be developing this training program to help tenants and landlords in New York improve their living conditions, reduce their annual expenses, and increase the value of their assets.
