We were so excited to be able to host our 2nd Hoxworth Blood Drive at Elevar’s headquarters on June 8th! The Hoxworth Donor Bus came down to Queensgate to collect some much needed donations. With COVID protocols in place, Hoxworth was able to receive 23 blood donations from our staff and friends who attended!

The Cincinnati 2030 District’s mission is to create a network of healthy, high-performing buildings in Cincinnati with an ultimate goal of reducing energy use, water consumption and transportation emissions 50% by the year of 2030. I believe that it is my role as a designer to push sustainability in a project as one of the driving forces. It simply can no longer be a feature we choose to include if budget allows. The future of our communities depends on how sustainable our built environment is.
It has been quite some time since Elevar has had a proper gathering, but this week we had a lot to celebrate with the return of two of our beloved things. Our founder, Emilio Fernandez, returned to the office and our Cincinnati Reds played their first game of the 2021 season! This week, under social distancing protocols, we fired up the grill and celebrated in the Elevar garage, in spite of April snow flurries!

Providing healthcare services for those in the later stages of life will become more and more prevalent as the post-war silent generation will soon be supplanted by the largest demographic: baby boomers. Recognizing this inevitable occurrence, healthcare providers have been taking steps to plan for this influx of septuagenarians, octogenarians, and up within their healthcare facilities.
Human beings require shelter from the elements, clean air, energy in the form of food, sleep, and of course a doctor’s visit to maintain our health at least once a year, if not more, as we age. Just like a physician’s checkup where the doctor checks all vital signs to make sure they are functioning, Elevar looks at all basic functions of the building enclosure from the hair on top (the roof) to the feet (the foundation).
