ECO+ PROGRAM A CONSUMER BENEFIT BUYERS CAN BANK ON

San Francisco Bay Area homebuilder Braddock & Logan Homes has announced the debut of their new ECO+ Program. ECO+ stands for Environmentally Conscious Ownership and its goal is to save homeowners money while providing them with a home that has been built with environmentally conscious, sustainable building practices. Specially designed plaques are posted in the model homes to bring attention to features that add extra value, comfort and quality like low-e dual-pane windows, low-use water systems, drought tolerant landscaping, use of environmentally friendly refrigerants and low VOC paints.

As part of the ECO+ program, the company also meets the green building standards of the nonprofit organization Build it Green and the U.S. government's ENERGY STAR program.  According to the company, Braddock & Logan has the greatest number of communities in the Build-it Green program in the Bay Area, further signifying its commitment to energy savings for its customers and underscoring the importance of green building standards for California.

Build it Green is a non-profit membership organization (www.builditgreen.org) whose mission is to promote healthy, energy and resource efficient building practices in California. Companies must demonstrate that their products support the organization’s mission to be eligible for membership. For example, a builder must recycle a minimum of 50% of all building waste from the job site; Braddock and Logan actually recycles more than that. As a member, Braddock & Logan also puts each home through an extensive test to determine its GreenPoint rating. These ratings remove the guesswork from evaluating features that improve indoor air quality, energy and water efficiency. 

Braddock & Logan has also earned the Energy Star rating by meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines for energy efficiency. Energy Star (www.energystar.gov) is a joint program of the EPA and the Department of Energy whose mission is to help consumers save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. An Energy Star home from Braddock & Logan is designed to exceed California’s energy efficiency standards for residential building by at least 15%. Energy Star homes may include other features that can make them 20-30% more energy efficient than typical homes.

For over sixty years, Braddock & Logan has gone beyond industry standards to create homes of lasting value, putting quality into every home they build - in places that can be seen and in even more places that buyers will never see.  Adding in environmentally friendly building practices allows the company to also build a better environment, one home at a time.
