Although it will be built by a yet-to-be-named general contractor rather than by Onion Flats' construction division, Timothy McDonald, Onion Flats president, says his company is deeply involved in every aspect, from financing to property management, including design, construction detailing, and quality control on-site and at the factory where the apartments will be prefabricated. It "doesn't rely on our own hands to build it, but it maintains an intimate connection to those who do," he says.

Tim McDonald of Onion Flats and its affiliated building and manufacturing firms in Philadelphia presented the ambitious and affordable modular approaches his firm is utilizing in a variety of passive house projects for both low-income and market rate housing. "What struck me about the event," he observed, "was that we're no longer talking about Passive House as a 'new', 'European', 'expensive' and 'boutique' approach to designing and thinking about buildings in the US. It's on the verge of being 'mainstream'! Noting that passive house principles are "common sense," he cited Ben Franklin's dictum "The trouble with common sense is that it's not all that common," acknowledging that "we still have much work to do."

In the last few days leading up to next Saturday's election, any citizen of Springhillshouldn't be surprised to see Tim McDonald standing on their doorstep.If he's there, he won't ask for too much time.Just a second to let the homeownerknow why he thinks he's the best man to be the next mayor for the City of Springhill.
"I'll be out from daylight to dark on the weekends," McDonald, 24, said."Whether I'm meeting people at football games or knocking on doors, I'm justtrying to let people know I'm honest, young and energetic."
And that's exactly what he tells the people he meets.
"I'm just for what the people of Springhill need and want," he said.
The parents of three, McDonald and his wife, Robin, have been married for six years.Both are lifelong residents of the Springhill area and want to see their home continueto go in a positive direction.
"I'm not going to back down on ideas," he said."I think the currentleadership of our city is a little out of touch with what the people of Springhillneed and want, so I want to get in with fresh ideas."
Among the goals McDonald said he hoped to achieve if elected include the initiationof youth programs, the improvement of the city's water and sewer system, the improvementof the city's streets, providing more adequate storm water drainage, maintenancedepartment improvements, upgrades to city parks, the improvement of public serviceprograms and the initiation of a disaster preparedness program.
"A lot of our facilities are run down," he said referring to the city'spark in particular."We would have to go in and assess what needed to be done.It would take a little time to determine if we would renovate or completely rebuild."
But in either case, McDonald said he has already begun to research acquiring grantmonies to pay for any such improvements.
"There is so much out there for us to use and improve our city," he said.
In addition to having a fresh face and fresh ideas, the mayoral hopeful said he hasa great deal of management experience to assist him while in office.
A maintenance planner at International Paper Co., McDonald's duties include planning,scheduling and coordinating mechanical activities.He oversees a staff of 10.
"My experience in industry will be helpful in dealing with businesses and tryingto help get them to locate in our city," he said.
And while he is a firm advocate of new business locating in Springhill, McDonaldsaid he realized that a community has got to have something to offer before locatingin a city.
He feels he is the man to help the community offer those special qualities to businesses.And to hear him tell it, so do many others who call Springhill home."Everyone I've talked to has given me positive feedback," he said."Ithink they are ready for a change, too."
McDonald is also an emergency medical technician for Advanced EMS.He serves as avolunteer firefighter for Springhill Fire District #11. He does not claim a political party, because he said neither of the two major affiliationspossess all of his ideals.
