Florida Green Construction is excited to receive an excellent review from "15 lightyears", the official certifier from Florida Green Building Coalition:
“We provide the Energy Rating and Green Certifications for all of their homes. For the past several years, it has been a pleasure working with Florida Green Construction.
Gene, Jeff and the entire rest of the team there really strive to build an exceptional product, from lot, to foundation, to roof. There are not many builders that maintain such a high level of specifications when concerning energy efficiency, water efficiency, indoor air quality, and durability.
As a matter of fact, all of their homes are built with the specifications to achieve the Platinum Level Certification, for sustainable building with the Florida Green Building Coalition Certification Program. This is an amazing feat!!”
