LEEDing the way in Bloomfield

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices. LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED for Homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes. Green homes use less energy, water and natural resources, create less waste, and are more durable and comfortable for occupants.

One enterprising Bloomfielder we know has spent the last year turning his recently acquired home into the first LEED Platinum home in NJ. We recently photographed the Innards before the drywall was installed. The home includes a geothermal heating and cooling system, energy efficient lighting and plumbing, closed cell foam insulation, zero-VOC paints, sustainable materials, and much more. Tomorrow we tour the nearly completed home. Stay tuned.

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours
    and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you're interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
