Pardee Announces Fair Oaks Ranch Project Meets Federal Green Standards

khts_businessnews3Pardee Homes announced Friday that their new LivingSmart home project in Fair Oaks Ranch has been certified as the first in the state to meet national green building standards.

Pardee officials gathered with representatives of the National Association of Home Builders Research Center, as well as state and local government officials for the announcement.

“The National Green Building Standard offers builders and product suppliers a nationally recognized standard definition of green building. It sets an important benchmark for our new home quality goals—and it’s a natural fit for the continuous evolution of our green building commitment, which began 13 years ago with our first energy-efficient homes in California and Nevada.”  Michael McGee, President and CEO, Pardee Homes

Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar praised the company on its project.

“Protecting the environment is a high priority for the City of Santa Clarita,” he said. “We are fortunate to have a great business partner in that effort with Pardee Homes. And, today, we are very pleased that Santa Clarita is the first community in California to receive new homes built to the highest green standards in the country.”

Michael Luzier, president of the NAHB Research Center, announced Pardee’s commitment to the Gold certification level for all homes of LivingSmart®Homes at Fair Oaks Ranch. He commented on what a strong message Pardee Homes’ certification commitment conveys to homebuyers.

Joining him in the announcement were LA County Supervisor Michael Antonovich; California Assemblyman Cameron Smyth and California Senator Sharon Runner. Also attending were representatives from Pardee Homes; the Building Industry of California and ConSol, California verifier for NGBS.

McGee said that NGBS certification provides credible verification of a homebuilder’s claims about green building. He noted that NGBS home certification goes beyond individual home performance to consider how the location adds to homebuyer’s green lifestyle.

Among sustainable attributes that will help the designs of LivingSmart Homes earn Gold certification are the walkable neighborhoods of Fair Oaks Ranch; its proximity to Metrolink, schools, shopping and recreation; its water-savings measures and its open space preservation. The LivingSmart Homes neighborhood includes four floor plans with approximately 1,846 to 2,432 square feet of living space.  Pricing is from the low $400,000s for these detached homes.
