In addition, the EcoBlock team has teamed up with Laura Ginn of the Green City Coalition who is working with the St. Louis Planning and Urban Design Agency under a grant from the MDC looking at creating green space in North St. Louis. EcoBlock is coordinating with her on GIS analysis on Site Selection Criteria.
The EcoBlock team has also been in contact with Yunsheng (Shawn) Xu, PhD, Mechanical Engineer at the University of Missouri Columbia College of Engineering on the potential prototype design of a geothermal system for an EcoBlock. Shawn has experience not only designing centralized geothermal systems but also on MicroUtility Structures.
We’re are also grateful for the generous support of the William A Kerr Foundation.
