New Dallas Homeless Housing Village Improves Energy-Efficiency & Sustainability with Demilec Spray Foam Insulation

Arlington, Texas, March 30, 2016 - At The Cottages at Hickory Crossing, located on the southeastern part of downtown Dallas, a tiny housing development is taking shape to aid more than four-dozen chronically homeless individuals. The $6.8 million-dollar supportive housing development, which consists of 50 individual 400-square-foot “tiny” homes and a 3,000-foot onsite management building, is utilizing Demilec’s spray foam insulation in all buildings.

This new development is a collaborative project between CitySquare and other social service organizations that work to find effective housing solutions for homeless individuals. Each of the tiny homes contains a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen, and is situated around a communal garden and community center, which will include a library, computer lab, clubhouse, and rooms for AA meetings, as well as offices for social workers, medical staff, and case managers.

The insulation will improve sustainability, reduce noise from nearby highways, and provide year-round comfort while lowering energy costs. The community plans to seek LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for its sustainability, energy efficiency, and lined to shared and public transportation for residents.
