At the Denver Real Estate Investors Success Summit on Saturday October 16, CEO of redT Homes, Nathan Adams, announced the company's major restructuring plan referred to as "Building a Greener Colorado".
Founded in 2014, redT, provides development, architecture, acquisitions, zoning & planning, management and brokerage services. Often we hear about sustainability projects within companies, however what makes this announcement so much more exciting is the firm plans to entirely shift their organization to only build LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification or better homes that will be referred to as LiteHomes!
To earn a LEED Gold Certification, a home must meet a set of rigorous sustainability requirements around site selection, locally sourced building materials, efficient water & energy systems, indoor air quality, and innovation.
redT will be taking the additional step of only partnering with like-minded companies and individuals, not to exclude, but to initiate a long overdue change within the home-building industry to sustainability.
The first deliverable to hit the market is 196 N Wolff Street!
196 N Wolff Street is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home totaling a spacious, 1,378 square feet. This energy efficient, energy star rated, solar-ready home was built to LEED Gold Certification as promised in the shift to Building a Greener Colorado.
redT designed this home to exceed IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) 2018 Performance Compliance, while most cities are still under 2015! There are roughly 275 - 300 more homes in some phase of development at this time, but 6 are nearing completion located on Ingalls Street in Lakewood.
We're excited to share some exclusive pictures of LiteHomes that are currently under construction and will be hitting the market shortly!
To further show their devotion to environmentally responsible development, the firm has partnered with OneTreePlanted and are apart of National Forest reforestation. They have pledged that for every tree used to build a LiteHome, they will plant two more!! On average 28 - 30 trees are used, therefore to date, redT has planted 420 trees, and are actively looking to partner with a Colorado reforestation project.
redT's dedication to building a greener Colorado by establishing healthier building practices, will be significant for both people and the environment. Not only will these homes be absolutely gorgeous, but they will truly be the way of the future!
