Philadelphia, PA, March 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Founded in 2007, Post Brothers Apartments, a luxury Philadelphia apartment building development company, is proud to celebrate its continued efforts toward "green" and environmentally friendly practices. Founded by brothers Matthew and Michael Pestronk, Post Brothers Apartments focuses specifically on creating high-quality upscale Philadelphia apartment buildings using more sustainable methods of both construction and business operations.
The company's green efforts are especially important given that 39% of the total energy used and 38% of the total carbon dioxide emitted in the United States comes from apartment buildings. The Pestronk brothers understand this, which is why they've tailored their building development plans to specifically include Energy Star appliances, thermal-insulated windows, heavy insulation and high-efficiency light bulbs and heating and cooling systems in every apartment. But those are just the energy-saving options.
When it comes to conserving water, Post Brothers developers stock each apartment with water-efficient appliances in the kitchens and bathrooms in addition to utilizing "intelligent landscaping irrigation" to save on regular water costs. Post Brothers also seeks out locally produced materials to construct and outfit their buildings; even the workers who physically put the pieces together are locally hired workers and craftsmen.
Post Brothers has also taken the lead in reducing paper use for its regular business needs, substituting web-based rent payments, computer management systems and an extensive newly designed website for more traditional paper-based documents or pamphlets. That's all part of the larger picture for the company's environmentally friendly vision.
"Post Brothers considers the protection and enhancement of the environment in every step of our development and management processes so we can offer socially responsible residents the ability to live a green lifestyle at a price they can afford," says a statement on the company's website.
Post Brothers Apartments is located at 633 W. Rittenhouse Street in Philadelphia, PA. To learn more about the company's services, call (215) 586-4111 or visit them online at www.postrents.com.
