Pecan Point, located at 100 Pecan Point Circle in Cochran, Georgia, is a 48-unit general family affordable housing community that underwent a complete renovation, including the addition of an expanded community center and manager's office. Originally built in the early 1990s, the community offers 1 or 2 bedroom units, including accessible units, and is conveniently located near public facilities, stores, restaurants, places of worship, and schools. The newly constructed community center and updated playground provide a welcoming environment for families.

The renovation, which began in November 2012, revealed several issues, including wood rot, termite damage, poor insulation, old and inefficient heat pump systems, and malfunctioning appliances, resulting in high energy bills. However, upon completion in late August 2013, not only were these problems resolved, but the buildings were transformed both inside and out, providing a beautiful living space for residents.
Although Synergy provided EarthCraft technical advisory, inspection, and testing services at Pecan Point, the company had no other role in the project.
The photo gallery below showcases Pecan Point before, during, and after the renovation process.
