When it comes to eco-friendly residential buildings, New Yorks‘ Battery Park City stands out as a leader in the green building movement.
The very first LEED-certified residential eco-friendly building built in the US was the Solaire, in 2003. This was followed by the Verdesian in 2006 and the Visionaire in 2008, all three were built in Battery Park City and consume thirty five percent less energy and fifty percent less water than your average residential buildings.
A large portion of the BPC eco-friendly buildings electricity supplies are generated by solar panels and include energy efficient appliances. Water is purified and reused and each room is equipped with motion sensors which activate heating, lighting, ventilation and air cons.

If your drive to work consists of dodging around potholes then you’ll be pleased to hear that the NY Department of Transportation is taking full advantage of the mild winter to get some much needed road repairs taken care of.
Using specially designed Pothole Killer vehicles, Patch Management has been contracted to fill in the thousands of potholes that plauge New York’s drivers. Repairs are already underway in Long Island’s Nassau and Suffolk Counties with more teams due to be dispatched throughout the state over the coming weeks and months.
The innovative Pothole Killer system only requires one operator and is much faster, safer and more environmentally friendly than the traditional method of using crews to combat the dreaded holes. Requiring less than two minutes per pothole, the road is then ready for traffic again – no mess, no fuss, no waiting.
And New York isn’t the only state benefiting from this time and cost saving technology. Patch Management has used their Pothole Killers to repair roads in DC, Pennsylvania, New Orleans and Chicago.
Do you know of a pothole that could use some technologically advanced attention? Call the hotline on 1-800-Pothole or email Patch Management.
