G8 Development's Newest Project at 2400 Amber

G8 Development has broken ground on yet another new project in New Kensington/ Fishtown.  Very similar to its neighbor at 2200 Amber, 2400 Amber will mirror the building branding the G8 image in a neighborhood teaming with development.  The 2 story residence designed in the progressive contemporary style, will feature sustainable construction methods and materials, as well as a fluid layout.





Concrete supports were poured a few weeks ago to support the neighboring house during construction.  The concrete base is also complete using insulated concrete forms (ICF) manufactured by GreenBlock.  The ICF method reduces the buildings carbon footprint by insulating the basement, allowing for more efficient heating and cooling of the home.  Framing of the building will start tomorrow.
