Bella Verde

West Bay, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Project Details:

This Contemporary home, located in West Bay, Grand Cayman, showcases the integration of sustainable building techniques, products, and systems optimized for a hot and humid climate. The project utilizes site-specific and climate-driven solutions for solving key green building challenges on an island where energy is expensive, water resources are limited and building products are imported. The design reinterprets traditional Caribbean vernacular to incorporate today’s family lifestyles, technologies, and products appropriate for a custom home in a high-end resort setting. The project illuminates the potential of a home that meets the desires, needs, and expectations of its inhabitants while being energy-efficient, durable, and cost-effective.

What our clients are saying

“Green Insight is always available on-site and in real-time. Their ability to turn things around and keep a project on track distinguishes GI from competitors. They are also creative and willing to roll with the punches. In my world, things don’t always work out perfectly but the team at Green Insight is always open to finding creative solutions to figure out the most timely, cost-efficient way to resolve issues.”

“Green Insight’s team is responsive, available, and provides a tremendous sense of security. We recently had a project where the goalposts changed quickly and often during the approval process. We were able to get our project approved, but I honestly don’t know how that would have gone if we didn’t have the backup and knowledge that Green Insight provided.”

Chris Beabout
Director of Development, Landmark Homes

“When it comes to green energy consultants, Green Insight takes the stress away like no other. They bring an unbeatable combination of value-engineering, industry knowledge, and out-of-the-box creativity for solutions that work. What I value most about working with Green Insight is the relationship – which is more like a partnership that has been one of the key drivers in our success. They take the stress away. And frankly, this has been the best relationship that I’ve had with somebody in this business.”
