Prefabricated Modular Receives LEED Platinum

USGBC LogoGreenfab was recently awarded LEED Platinum certification by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) for achievement in green homebuilding and design. Greenfab’s prefabricated, modular home is the first to be certified LEED Platinum in the State of Washington. The home is part of Greenfab’s 1300 Series. The 1,870 square foot Seattle Greenfab home consists of three bedrooms and focuses heavily on reducing energy use by incorporating double-glazed windows with a U-value of .35, R-26 exterior walls, which are 35 percent better than code (R-17), Energy Star rated appliances, energy recovery ventilation, heat pump electric heating, backup radiant electric heat, and a GE hybrid heat pump water heater. A digital monitoring system collects and measures realtime data about weather, energy and water use, and provides constant feedback to troubleshoot and monitor performance through an interactive iPad/iPhone based application. Advocates say green, prefabricated, modular homes may have substantially lower utility bills and may qualify for advantageous financing, lower insurance rates and government incentives. According to the industry, Greenfab homes are not only healthier and stronger but are also completed 50 percent faster than traditional homes built on-site.
