Green-Certified New Home
ResConServ was responsible for managing all of the green project administration for this new home in Winter Park, Florida. Designed and built by Phil Kean Designs, this home was certified gold under the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC).

Drew Smith with Two Trails Green Consulting provided the services of the Green Rater. They were responsible for verifying the implementation of the home's green products and systems and obtaining the certification from each of the agencies.

Most notable about this home was the traditional design, not normally associated with green homes. Many people were surprised to learn that the home was green certified. Originally we sought to certify the home under USGBC LEED for Homes. Under LEED, the air-conditioning system size has to be installed within one-half ton of the size calculated by the model energy code schedule J. The owner was not convinced that the AC size was adequate, so the switch was made to FGBC certification which is not quite as restrictive.
