SENSIBLY BUILT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Imagine a dwelling that’s full of clean air. A building cleansed of pollutants and contaminants. One that contributes positively to your comfort and well-being.
The Arbors at Culpeper is an EarthCraft Multifamily Certified development in Culpeper, Virginia and features well-designed ventilation, effective moisture management, and the selection of smart construction materials that minimize off-gassing.
Millions of Americans suffer from allergies or asthma, and if you do too, it’s important to know that indoor pollutants and excess moisture in your home or workplace are often a bigger problem than outdoor sources.
The EarthCraft program addresses occupant health by requiring every building it certifies to address indoor air quality. As a result, you can breathe easy!
EarthCraft buildings are designed and built to have lower economic and environmental impact. The benefits of sustainable construction are seen through utility savings, emissions reductions and happier, healthier people.
This is accomplished through a step-by-step process molded to each developer and their project team’s needs. The EarthCraft Multifamily program utilizes a HERS rating, program guidelines, points-based worksheet, site visits, and diagnostic testing to verify that The Arbors at Towne Park project complies with program standards and current green building best practices.
EarthCraft Multifamily is the country’s first multifamily-specific green building program. It addresses newly constructed multifamily projects. The EarthCraft Multifamily program addresses a wide range of sustainability issues, including environmental performance, indoor air quality, building durability, comfort, and affordability. The EarthCraft Multifamily program addresses these concerns at the unit level and for the community as a whole.
The result is a community that is healthy and operationally cost effective, as well as energy, water, and resource efficient.
