High Performance Homebuilder Moving to Arlington (Promoted)

Seeing the demand for high-performance, LEED certified homes in the area, Maryland homebuilder SEED Homes (www.seedhomes.com) is relocating their headquarters to Arlington. The move to 3300 Fairfax Dr, in the Clarendon/Va.Square Corridor, will be complete in July.

“As a company, we are moving towards building smaller homes that do not rely on the traditional power supply for electricity. Zero-energy smart homes are not a thing of the future anymore, we are building them now, and can build custom net-zero homes at competitive rates. That is why we want to be in Arlington, where customers prefer quality and character over size and raw numbers” says Vicrum Puri, President and Founder of SEED.   The company puts a different spin on a current buzz word. “Smart homes are not just about technology. If you are not building a beautifully finished home with energy-efficiency, high-performance, durability and home health in mind, it’s not a smart home to me.”

All of the homes built by SEED (which stands for Smart, Energy-Efficient Designed Homes) are LEED Certified. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification consists of a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhoods. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is intended to provide building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

The ratings range from basic Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, its highest grade. SEED has achieved Certification, Silver and Gold ratings in its homes, and has an upcoming project targeting LEED Platinum. The company’s most recent build, at 9207 Kirkdale Rd in Bethesda, MD, is set to achieve a LEED Gold certification. The home features an exhaustive list of performance, durability and sustainability features, including a high-efficiency HVAC system, a solar PV array and locally sourced construction materials. Over 90% of the waste from the construction of the home was recycled, and with a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) index score below 50, the home will use less than ½ of the energy of a home of the same size, built to code.
