LEED Model Home in Georgetown
February 8, 2016
Menkes celebrated the official ribbon cutting of our LEED Silver Certified home on Thursday, December 10th, along with Mayor Rick Bonnette of The Town of Halton Hills and fellow town concillors. LEED Canada certification identifies this home as a pioneering example of sustainable design and demonstrates our leadership in transforming the building industry.
“We are very proud to have built Halton’s first LEED Silver home, as well all the homes in The Enclaves of Upper Canada which are ENERGY STAR® homes” said Steven Menkes, President of the Low-Rise Residential division at Menkes. “The ENERGY STAR® label guarantees that when our customers make what may be the biggest purchases of their lives, they are not only buying homes that are both well-built and will save them money, but also reducing their impact on the environment.”
The Optimum Home program, sponsored by Union Gas, involves top builders designing and building high performance homes that exceed the energy efficiency requirements of the building code.
"Through the Optimum Home Program, participating builders can solidify their position as influential industry leaders by demonstrating that homes can be built to a higher standard” said Dave Simpson, general manager of in-franchise sales, marketing and customer care at Union Gas. “In turn, homebuyers benefit by living in homes that are more comfortable, healthy and durable with lower energy bills throughout the lifetime of their home."
The Enclaves of Upper Canada offers a wide selection of semi-links and fully detached homes. For more information on our ENERGY STAR® homes in Georgetown, please visit the Enclaves of Upper Canada website.
