Builders of new homes are starting to rethink the concept of energy efficiency and design for sustainability. Consumers are starting to demand features such as solar power , energy storage , passive energy and innovation in design. Here is one such builder in the state of Virginia.
Brookfield Residential recently opened the doors to its most ambitious eco-friendly home project, a new design meant to re-imagine the way home-builders can provide outstanding energy efficiency on a large scale.
The PureBlue Home at Brookfield Residential’s Avendale community in Northern Virginia is a concept home built to test the limits of innovation, efficiency and design, to explore the latest technologies and find out how they fit with the way homeowners want to live today, tomorrow and far beyond.
The lessons learned will help Brookfield Residential build better, healthier, more energy-efficient homes. And the project has the potential to reshape the way high-volume homebuilders approach energy-efficient homes.
