Great Falls Construction Goes Green
Great Falls Construction is planning three custom estate homes on five- to six-acre wooded lots in Great Falls, Virginia. Designed by Custom Design Concepts, these homes will showcase the same craftsmanship and attention to detail that has won the firm multiple industry awards since 1979. But this time, there’s a twist. Buyers of these three estate houses will be able to choose just how “green” they want their new home to be. Great Falls Construction is offering a Performance Package Series that includes three levels of energy efficiency and sustainable resources designed to lessen the carbon footprint and environmental impact of both the construction and operation of the homes.
Level I includes basic efficiency standards for electrical and heating/cooling system performance, water consumption, insulation, windows and other environmental controls.
Level II uses alternative energy methods such as solar power and geothermal heat. Reclaimed and recycled materials are used for cabinetry, countertops, flooring, wall coverings and finishes, for both interior and exterior applications. Specifications are available for low-consumption plumbing and electrical fixtures.
Level III offers the options above, but also enables homeowners to measure the return and operational performance of their alternative energy systems. This option also takes into account the sustainability of building materials and their fabrication and installation techniques.
By allowing homebuyers to choose the shade of green that’s right for their family and budget, Great Falls Construction is taking custom home building into a new era of environmental responsibility. And they’re doing it without sacrificing craftsmanship, luxury or space. These homes will range from 4,600 to 7,200 square feet and are priced from $2.75 million.For more information, contact Great Falls Construction at 703-759-6116 or visit www.greatfallsconstruction.com.
