Case Study: The Go Green Home

Case Study Development

When we selected the site for The Go Green Home we initiated a study of the sun and prevailing winds to determine the best positioning of the house for maximum energy efficiency. This pre-construction phase is especially important in an energy-efficient, green home; the architect, engineer and contractor -- and the contractor's infrastructure people -- work in concert long before plans are drawn up and submitted. Fernando and Robin and our in-house designer, Terri Reyes, have been meeting with structural engineers, landscapers, purveyors of FSC-certified structural members and plywoods, LEED consultants, deconstruction specialists, grey water recycling experts -- everyone who will help us achieve our maximum LEED rating when the house is finished.
