Froghill Residence Earns LEED Certification

Posted by on 7/19/12 at 01:00am

Frog Hill, a 3,655 s.f. residence in Washington, Connecticut, has achieved certification under the LEED for Homes Program! This was accomplished through exemplary use of environmentally preferable building materials and pest control alternatives, and a design that is predicted to perform 35% better than code based on energy simulation and diagnostic pressure testing of the home after construction. Among the home’s energy-conserving strategies is a warm radiant concrete floor that is also heated through the solar gain of the windows in winter, shown ABOVE

 

Congratulations to the project team for this awesome achievement!
