RTM provided the MEP design for four six-flat and two six-unit townhome buildings as part of a two-phase redevelopment effort in Evanston. Emerson Square features a total of 60 units built upon five acres, including a community garden and playground. Engineering design for the ground-up development included services for new utilities, street lighting and park amenities. In addition, RTM incorporated energy efficient design to achieve the “Enterprise Green Communities” certification for the community. Funding and design review were in conjunction with the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IDHA).
