John Marshall Custom Homes, Inc. of Davidson has achieved another milestone in the LEED for Homes green building program. After having built the first home in Davidson to be LEED certified, and the first home in Mecklenburg County to be LEED certified at the ‘gold’ level or higher, John Marshall Custom Homes has now built more LEED certified homes than any other private builder in the State of North Carolina.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently awarded LEED certification to a home built by John Marshall Custom Homes, Inc. at 518 Walnut Street in Davidson. With this designation, John Marshall Custom Homes has built more LEED certified homes in North Carolina than any other builder except the federal government (see photos below of some of our LEED homes).
“We are proud to demonstrate our commitment to responsible building through our participation in the LEED program,” says Rodney Graham, owner of John Marshall Custom Homes. “LEED certification is our customer’s assurance that their home has been verified to meet exacting standards in energy efficiency, indoor air quality, durability, and water efficiency among others.”
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and is a program administered by the US Green Building Council. LEED awards points for energy and water efficiency, indoor air quality, sustainable building practices, environmentally-friendly and local resources, native landscaping, and education and awareness.
