The award winning home was certified under both the LEED and NAHB green Building Guidelines. The home was Platinum LEED certified and was the first to achieve Gold under the Build Green NH Guidelines. Epoch Homes has been involved in Green Building since the late 1990’s when they partnered with the Department of Energy on the Cambridge Co-Housing project. Their first LEED Platinum project was a duplex, certified in 2007. This home was built for ABODE Builders of New England.
John Ela, Epoch CEO and owner stated, “Epoch continues to explore new technologies to make green building affordable and to simplify the process, encouraging our Builder Network to try new approaches. While building in a controlled factory environment is inherently greener than traditional site building, we try to go beyond that by offering new materials, insulation and wall systems.” He added that “Green Building and Custom Building are two approaches that go hand in hand to meet the needs of today’s discerning home buyer. Our willingness to listen to the customer has allowed us to build some of the greenest homes in the country. It is an honor to be recognized by our peers for our leadership in building beautiful green homes.”
