What is "Green Building"?

Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers to building that is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle. This includes the materials and the processes used. The practice of building green expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort.

All Mandalay homes are EPA AirPLUS Certified, exceed Energy Star standards, and are built Zero Energy Ready. To us these aren’t just badges on our brochures. Energy efficiency isn’t just a goal, it’s a responsibility and an integral part of our business and building practices. We believe building green is building homes for a better, more responsible future.

Exceeding Standards

Our homes have much lower standard HERS ratings than other national home builders who only meet the requirements for EPA Energy Star certification. Every home we build is 50% more energy efficient than Energy Star guidelines and rated Zero Energy Ready. When you combine our green features and building practices with a Solar System you can completely eliminate your household energy costs.

Indoor Air Filtering

Indoor Air Filtering keeps the air in our homes fresh and clean exchanging stale air with fresh from outdoors. In the process it conditions and filters the air for healthy indoor living.

Cathedralized Roof

Cathedralized Roof Deck Insulation dramatically reduces heat transfer keeping HVAC ductwork cooler helping maintain heating/cooling efficiency.
