EVstudio is very excited to be continuing work with the fantastic historic preservation collaborative HistoriCorps this year. HistoriCorps is now entering it’s 3rd summer of volunteer driven historic preservation projects and is in the process of expanding to a national model. This public-private partnership is a collaborative effort of the U.S.D.A. National Forest Service, Colorado Preservation Inc. and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and has saved 39 structures in 4 states in it’s first two years of public service. In addition, they have provided skills and service experience to more than 300 volunteers who have given more than 6,500 hours of labor to these projects!
HistoriCorps has an ambitious summer planned and will work on 24 projects in Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and New Mexico. EV Studio has been working with HistoriCorps throughout these first few years and is continuing to help bring these wonderful projects to fruition. This year we are working on a few projects with HistoriCorps and have just completed a prototype vault toilet design for them which is aesthetically based on the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Era precedents of the 1930′s while adhering to modern building code and standards (including ADA Accessibility) and volunteer-driven construct-ability design.
The final document (Prototype Vault Toilet Guideline) looks fantastic and will be highly usable this summer and into future years. Thank you for creating this and I look forward to another opportunity to work with you.
EVstudio has worked with several non-profit organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, requiring the consideration of volunteer friendly materials and construction systems for volunteer-driven projects. We highly enjoy working with these organizations and being a part of the very special projects that they contribute to our community.
