The Templin Bradley building was built in 1916 and is listed on the national register of historic buildings. The property was the home of the Templin Bradley Seed and Bulb Company. This company was responsible for giving away thousands of seeds and bulbs during the great depression and was a leader in the victory garden movement during World War II.
For over a decade the building stood vacant and was an eyesore for the Cleveland shore way neighborhood. The Detroit Shore way Community Development Organization and its partners took on the challenge of renovating this historic building.
As part of the environmental sustainability phase, A-Z Solutions was brought on board to tackle the vapor intrusion issues that normally come with turning a once industrial building into residential space.
“Our unique system design allows us to create safe indoor air quality without having to demolish or do major construction on the building” Says Tony McDonald –VP of Operations at A-Z Solutions.
The rehabilitation of the Templin-Bradley Company Lofts meets Enterprise Green Communities standards. The installation of the sub slab depressurization system (SSD) took less than 30 days and the building was able to move in its first residents on schedule. SSD Technology is a cleaner and more economical approach to mitigating vapor intrusion. The methodology utilized by A-Z Solutions allows urban buildings like the Bradley Templin to be repurposed instead of demolished.
