The LEED for Homes team at Green Insight would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Dean and Angela Garfinkel on the recent LEED for Homes V4.1 GOLD certification of their custom home in Crystal Harbour, Grand Cayman. This is yet another successful international LEED for Homes certification for Green Insight. As the company who certified the very first International project in the LEED for Homes program, we take pride in the successful completion of projects like this one, knowing the added difficulties of international certifications.
Through a combination of exceptional energy efficiency, water savings, and indoor air quality, this home will perform as well as it looks for many years to come. The large scale PV system in conjunction with the efficient envelope and systems, has this project modeling at net zero, even with the pool included.
Once again congratulations to the Garfinkels, the builder (Core Construction), the architect (Equiterra Design – formerly Environmental Dynamics of Albuquerque NM), and all of the trades whose hard work made this such a success!
