New World Home was recently awarded LEED® for Homes Platinum, NAHB Gold and EarthCraft Gold certification for our Chadwick design in Atlanta, GA. Once again, these certifications were achieved without the need for any costly renewable energy sources (solar panels, wind turbines or geothermal systems). This home also won the 2010 Energy Value Housing Award (EVHA) in the Moderate Climate, Factory-Built category. The EVHA program is organized by the National Association of Home Builders and the award was presented to the company founders at the recent International Builders Show in Las Vegas.
These certifications add to a string of achievements for New World Home projects. Additionally, the company’s first LEED Platinum certified house recently won the EarthCraft Project of the Year Award – 2009 for single family construction. The prestigious EarthCraft award recognizes accomplishments in green building across the Southeastern United States.
