Lake County Florida’s first Silver LEED certified home

 

Harbor Hills Development has received a Silver LEED rating from the US Green Building Council and Green Building Certification Institute for the Carlyle Residence.  A LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is a tool that provides third-party verification of sustainable buildings. 

The Carlyle Residence was designed to meet these standards by a variety of methods from energy conservation to material selection. The home has aided in energy savings. Plus, the adhesives, paints, and flooring materials selected were all low-emitting materials. All of this provides a healthy living environment.

What can LEED do for you?

  • Lower operating costs and increase asset value
  • Conserve energy, water and other resources
  • Be healthier and safer for occupants
  • Qualify for money-saving incentives, like tax rebates and zoning allowances

The project team, and the Carlyle Family demonstrated a passion for achieving maximum building efficiency and supporting a healthy indoor environment. This distinction is a great honor for our Harbor Hills community and it builds on our legacy to use and preserve our natural resources.  LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is transforming the way we think about how our buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED is a green building tool that addresses the entire building lifecycle recognizing best-in-class building strategies.  Please watch the video below for additional details.
