Dow Chemical, Habitat For Humanity Join In Building Philly’s Largest Local Habitat at Diamond Park
On September 21st, The Dow Chemical Company joined Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia for the first phase of the Diamond Park Build, Habitat’s largest local construction project culminating in twenty-one units of affordable homeownership in the Lower North Central Philadelphia neighborhood.
To support the first phase of the build, Dow contributed volunteer support from September 21 through September 24, and provided the necessary energy-saving insulation products, including STYROFOAM™ Brand XPS Insulation and GREAT STUFF PRO™ Weatherization products, to assist in completing this project. As a result of Dow’s support, the first phase is on track to result in twelve units by the summer of 2017.
“For Dow, the most rewarding aspect of this project is that we’re able to help make the dream of homeownership a reality for so many families,” said Daniel S. Miller, Ph.D., Sr. Research Engineer. “This project also brings us closer to achieving Dow’s 2025 sustainability goals, and allows us to use our building science expertise to help local families own an energy-efficient, affordable house without the burden of high utility bills.” •
