The Ulman House – It’s all in the details
It’s been an exciting time here at the Ulman Cancer Fund since construction began on the Ulman House!
In September, we began the process of deconstruction on the existing row homes in our six-unit stretch of E Madison Street in East Baltimore.
For the deconstruction, we worked with Baltimore based company, Details, whose workforce is made up of local people facing barriers to employment.
One man we worked with grew up just blocks from the Ulman House!
Besides the social impact of Details work, their environmental impact is important too.
They were able to recover brick and wood from the deconstruction process that will go back into our rebuild of the property and into future construction projects around Baltimore.
This deconstruction of the property and recycling of materials helps us towards our goal of becoming LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified.
LEED is a green building rating system which provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient, sustainable buildings. We believe this is important not only for the health of our patients and caregivers but for the health of the environment as well.
