STREAM Collaborative is working with the Town of Enfield to design a new community center for afterschool programs, social events, weddings and more. The building features a large assembly space, classroom, library, and commercial kitchen. The strategy is to use a frost protected shallow foundation with finished concrete floor, 8” structural insulated panels for walls and dense packed cellulose insulation in the roof/ceiling. The entire south facing roof will be covered with solar photovoltaic panels, all electric systems throughout and the goal of net-zero energy use.
