Green building and energy efficient building at Habitat Philadelphia

Green Building at Habitat

We incorporate Green Building techniques into all of our homes to maximize energy efficiency.

Habitat Philadelphia designs and builds to high energy efficiency standards, in both our rehab and our new-construction homebuilding projects. We believe that energy efficiency and green design can provide homes that are not only affordable to purchase, but also affordable to maintain.   

In 2014 we completed our first two LEED Platinum certified homes in North Central Philadelphia. Since 2013 we have built all new homes to LEED Silver standards or above. Green design, sustainability, and affordability demand that environmental, economic, and social conditions are equally recognized and integrated. 

Some of our standard green construction techniques can be seen below:
