Rebuilding New Orleans: Can rebuilding New Orleans be environmentally friendly?

  • ICFs, Green Materials Can be Used

    Rebuilding New Orleans can be done with green materials and with stronger materials such as insulated concrete forms that can withstand hurricane-force winds. Houses can use solar energy since the sun is a huge presence in New Orleans year-round and not just in the summer. The difficulty is that the city wants to preserve its history while at the same time it needs to move forward with a rebuilding effort.

  • Rebuilding New Orleans could potentially be environmentally friendly

    Although construction and the use of materials will naturally have a negative impact on the environment this could be a opportunity to build a city that is self sustaining and green minded. Although this would require a new philosophy on the cities construction to avoid another disaster striking the city.
