This site-specific climate-driven design approach for this LEED® for Homes project demonstrates how sustainable design can be glamorous.
Green Insight’s scope of work included working with the contractor before design started to identify cost-effective design solutions, LEED for Homes credit verification and testing during construction, extensive energy modeling to determine Net-Zero electric, building material assessments, review of specifications, construction documents, and project submittals.
Highly insulated envelope, all-electric heating and cooling system powered by a 7 kW photovoltaic system to achieve net-zero electric. The home was built of non-toxic and recycled building materials with a balanced ventilation system. All rainwater was captured from the use and directed into a cistern for landscape use.
Our project success
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.”
Project Manager, Pavilion Construction
“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.”
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.”
