Atlanta, GA, United States, 2007/04/18 - Brock Built City Neighborhoods has recently earned its Earth Craft House certification, making it the second largest builder of Earth Craft Homes in metro Atlanta.
Brock Built City Neighborhoods is pleased to announce that the company has earned its Earth Craft House certification – making it the second largest builder of Earth Craft Homes in metro Atlanta. A blueprint for healthy, comfortable homes built to “green” standards, Earth Craft certified homes reduce utility bills and protect the environment. The program is a partnership between the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, Southface, and government and industry partners. Moving forward, all Brock Built homes and communities will be built to meet or exceed the standards set forth by the Earth Craft House program.
“Brock Built has always considered the environment when planning our communities,” said Steve Brock, owner and CEO of Brock Built, LLC. “Large green spaces, walking paths, and close proximity to mass transit are just a few of the Earth Craft standards we’ve incorporated into our community plans for years. As environmentally friendly products become more popular and highly desired, we viewed the Earth Craft certification as a way to incorporate even more “green” building practices into our homes while at the same time ensuring our homeowners they are buying a home that is built to last a lifetime.”
As an Earth Craft builder, Brock Built will build each and every one of their homes with advanced building systems, certified mechanical components and other energy-saving, resource-efficient products throughout the entire construction process. Utilizing environmentally friendly construction techniques not only will add value to the homes, but it will also aid in the quality of life for buyers because of the healthier construction, and will minimize negative impacts on the environment. Once the home is complete, homeowners will benefit from the construction by having lower utility bills, and peace of mind that their energy-efficient homes are helping to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases. Home owners of Earth Craft homes have also said that they are more comfortable and can breathe easier because the air quality is so much better.
“As home owners recognize the need to protect the environment and seek homes that can assist with this mission, shoppers view components that improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency as things that will add value to their homes,” continued Brock. “And, environmentally friendly homes are very important in such a rapidly growing metropolitan area as Atlanta. Brock Built merely felt it was our duty to do our part to make each of our homes as efficient and environmentally safe and healthy as possible.”
For a home to be certified as Earth Craft, there are multiple inspections that must be passed during the construction process. As a result, Brock Built homes will have a healthier indoor environment, lower utility bills, more durability, less maintenance and greater comfort.
