North Barclay Green Townhomes are designed with energy saving products and materials to afford the homebuyer real savings - on utility bills, and gallons of water with high efficiency appliances and fixtures.
Green building is an approach that integrates design and building techniques to minimize environmental impact and reduce the energy consumption of buildings while contributing to the well-being of its occupants. North Calvert Green homes are designed to use less energy, less natural resources and fewer toxic chemicals. Every detail has been carefully planned to ensure you’re getting a genuine green, ENERGY STAR-certified home. To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30% more efficient than standard homes.
