We’re going for Platinum!

January 17, 2014

Part of the exciting and innovative work being put into the construction of Sierra Madre Villages includes the goal of achieving certification through the LEED green building rating system. From day one, beginning with site clearance through the time we open and welcome new residents, there are actions taking place to ensure that Sierra Madre meets the original goal of GOLD level certification. At this time in the project progress we are actually pushing the bar higher and are shooting for a PLATINUM rating! One example of measures taken as part of the requirements is the construction fencing around the site with the green wind barriers as a dust control measure, which minimizes the impact of the construction on the environment and neighboring residents.
