LEED BD+C: Homes v3 - LEED 2008

The Preserve

23 Evergreen Ln (Lot 8)
New Paltz, NY 12561
United States

LEED Silver 2014

The Preserve at Mountain Vista consists of beautiful and affordable Zero Net Energy Homes built on a nine-lot cul-de-sac. All of these homes have been designed and built to the highest energy efficiency and green building standards, including NYS ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes, EPA Indoor airPlus, U.S. DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes and USGBC LEED for Homes Silver Level certification. About 30 acres have been designated as a conservation easement and nature preserve. And, most importantly, each home will be capable of producing more energy each year than it consumes — which means that homeowners are projected to have no heat and electric bills.

These homes raise the standard for comfort and energy efficiency. Each home is built for superior energy performance, comfort and health. High efficiency heating and cooling systems, enhanced insulation, improved indoor air quality, high performance windows and doors, steel reinforced insulated concrete construction, and ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances are just some of the many wonderful features at The Preserve. These homes have all been LEED for Homes Silver Certified and have HERS Scores in the range of 3 to 7.

This project is innovative, because it has been designed for long-term durability, disaster-resistance to withstand severe weather and built to last for at least seven generations. All of these benefits are “standard features” in any home built by Greenhill Contracting.

Additionally, Greenhill Contracting was awarded the 2014 ICF Builders Award for The Preserve and the 2014 DOE Housing Innovation Award for 15 Evergreen Ln.
