On August 16 and 17, Builders Club Rewards sponsor Boral Bricks, the nation’s largest brick manufacturer and distributor, will join a group of passionate individuals and companies committed to sustainable building practices to celebrate the grand opening of the Proud Green Home at Serenbe.
Located within Serenbe, a community just 30 miles outside of Atlanta and home to a 1,000-acre Greenfield site and one of the only EarthCraft Communities in the Southeast, the green home aims to educate and inspire building professionals and consumers about sustainable, green and high performance home strategies and products.
Open to the public, the two-day open house will take place Friday, August 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, August 17 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. People will be encouraged to explore the home by taking self-guided tours. By way of an interactive gallery wall and hand-held models provided by manufacturing sponsors, including Boral Bricks, people will discover how this unique home expresses building science, better construction techniques and products that demonstrate the future of high-performance homes.
The Proud Green Home at Serenbe is a certified net zero, EarthCraft House Platinum home, as well as certified ENERGY STAR® Version 3.0, EPA Water Sense and EPA Indoor Air Plus. Boral’s architectural brick will be used in both interior and exterior applications on the home, complementing the contemporary style of the home and helping bring the indoors and outdoors comfortably together for maximum warmth and character.
Brick is not only well accepted as an aesthetic choice, but also as a green one because of its long life and durability. Bricks are recyclable and biodegradable, and brick construction provides the advantages of thermal mass, resulting in interior environments with greater energy efficiency.
“As the market is picking up, more builders have a plan for implementing sustainability and green building, but are challenged in finding a way to communicate this message alongside the design aesthetic,” said Shelley Ross, Director of Marketing at Boral Industries, Inc. “The efforts at the Proud Green Home at Serenbe to showcase energy-saving products and sustainable building practices will no doubt help lead the way for more informed purchases and design decisions by builders, architects and consumers.”
The Proud Green Home at Serenbe is being produced by ProudGreenHome.com in conjunction with IMERY GROUP (builder), L G Squared (architect), Serenbe (master-planned community), SMARTBIM and VIMTrek (3-D Modeling) and various building product manufacturers.
