Top Green Builders: San Antonio

by brook

When the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) met on May 11 for the 10th annual National Green Building Conference, they honored numerous green home builders for adherence to NAHB’s Model Green Home Building Guidelines in 2008. Among the honorees was Imagine Homes, a San Antonio developer that lays claim to leading the nation in new sustainable building technology.

Specializing in delivering high performance new homes to San Antonio home buyers, Imagine Homes promises savings of up to 50% on new home heating and cooling costs. The homes in their communities are certified by both the Energy Star and Build San Antonio Green programs, ensuring that home owners enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality,  and drought tolerant landscapes (this is important in states that tend to experience low rainfall, as is the case in Texas). Of course, the NAHB took home design into account as well when selecting honorees; fortunately, Imagine Homes offer the latest in design innovations and cutting edge construction materials.

In fact, because Imagine Homes is on the forefront of green home building practices, other home builders are beginning to taking notice. Beazer Homes, one of the nation’s top 10 homebuilders, partnered with Imagine Homes to gain additional insight on environmentally-conscious home design and construction techniques. Beazer’s planning and design team leveraged Imagines’ expertise to introduce eSMART By Beazer Homes, a comprehensive program designed to increase energy and water efficiency and improve indoor air quality for every home the company builds.

Congratulations to Imagine Homes on this honor; and, to Beazer Homes for following their lead. To keep buyers abreast of the latest green building innovators, we’ll be highlighting additional NAHB green building honorees in future posts.
