Rigorous Inspection

We enroll our new homes in the Focus on Energy New Homes Program and work with independent, third-party, home performance professionals to provide testing services. We collaborate in the design phase to ensure successful outcomes. Homes built to the National Green Building Standard must undergo rigorous inspection that takes building orientation, landscaping, storm water management, air-sealing, insulation, indoor-air quality, glazing, lighting and mechanical systems into account. We provide you with test results that verify the quality of our work and the efficiency of your home.
