What Makes Us Unique?
Our approach to housing goes beyond the bricks and mortar; it's about building communities and nurturing them with eco-friendly living practices. Our commitment to innovation and sustainability is exemplified through the use of SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) in our development projects.
These panels, made of two sheets of OSB (Oriented Strand Board) enveloping a slab of styrofoam, are manufactured off-site and then assembled on-site, providing a nearly airtight insulation. Unlike traditional building methods, SIPs ensure top-tier energy efficiency, aligning perfectly with our ethos of environmental stewardship. This unique construction technology sets us apart from the competition, as it not only supports our mission of affordable housing but also represents a forward-thinking approach to energy-conscious living.
A prime example of our dedication to sustainability is the Great Hill Cottage Community in Guilford, a two-phase development project that stands as a testament to our values. Learn more about this project and the technologies we use at https://greenplanetco.org/great-hill.
