- Water-efficient plumbing fixtures that reduce the amount of water used in
the kitchen, laundry, or bath.
- Healthier paints and finishes with low or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
that can eliminate odors and possible health issues.
- Passive solar heat or solar photovoltaic power, where feasible for your
project and site.
- Good ventilation and sealing of air leaks, to improve indoor air quality,
reduce heating and cooling costs, and make your home more comfortable.
Construction is currently in the process of receiving The LEED Certification
process. Achieving LEED certification is the best way for you to demonstrate that your building project is truly "green." The LEED green building rating system -- developed and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington D.C.-based, nonprofit coalition of building industry leaders -- is designed to promote design and construction practices that increase profitability while reducing the negative environmental impacts of buildings and improving occupant health and well-being.
