Our affiliate has made a commitment to being a leader in building sustainable and energy efficient homes for deserving families. As an affiliate, we are interested in programs that will recognize our commitment to quality construction and design. Thus, we are partnered with programs and certifications, such as LEED for Homes, ENERGY STAR, and Indoor airPLUS.
We we completed our first LEED home in late May 2010 at Northfield Village in Boulder. Not only are we the first LEED affordable housing units in Boulder but we achieved LEED Platinum, the highest ranking for LEED certification!
According to M. Landman Communications and Consulting “As of early 2012, at least 1,055 projects—across 25 countries and 49 U.S. states—have been rated Platinum: the highest LEED rating. Buildings (and homes and offices) that have attained this rigorous level of LEED certification are among the greenest in the world.” Flatirons Habitat for Humanity has built four of those homes in Boulder.
