226-232 Highland Street LEED for HOMES Certificates

Some awesome news to share!

Our 226-232 Highland Street E+ Townhouses have successfully achieved the certification level of "LEED for Homes Platinum" as established by the U.S. Green Building Council  in the LEED Green Building Rating System and verified by an independent green rater.

We would like to thank all the core team members who worked tiredlessly on the project:

  • Daryn E., Brian P. and Kara M. from Interface Studio Architects
  • Evan S. and Declan K. from Placetailor
  • Michael S. and Will D. from Conservation Services Group
  • Kamran Z., Cheryl S. , Shawn P., Justin K. and Andrew W. from Urbanica

The combined expertise and knowledge of the team turned the lofty dream of building a cluster of Net Positive LEED Platinum homes into reality. The project is one of the first residential project in the City of Boston to achieve this highest level of achievement within the LEED rating system.

In fact, technically speaking, these are actually four LEED for Homes Platinum Certified projects located along the same street -- a concentration of LEED for Homes Platinum projects that is just unparalleled elsewhere in the world.

We plan to publish a series of blog posts that will highlight the design strategies employed throughout the project.
