Insulated Concrete Form Home From NUDURA gets LEED Gold rating

by Mark Angus | oct. 28, 2011

A project out of London, Ontario has been awarded a LEED® Gold Certification by the CaGBC. Double N Homes has been certified LEED® Gold (the area’s first LEED home) and represents what can be achieved when motivated clients and a willing builder work in tandem. Double N is a Strathroy-based company that has been building for 21 years; an Energy Star registered builder. NUDURA Insulated concrete form products were used to the roof on the project, providing a building envelope constructed out of concrete. The Thermal Mass advantage of a home constructed with Insulated Concrete Forms from NUDURA allow mechanical equipment to be downsized and run more efficiently.

LEED® Canada for Homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes. A green home uses less energy, water and natural resources; creates less waste; and is healthier and more comfortable for the occupants. The net cost of owning a LEED® home is comparable to that of owning a conventional home. NUDURA contributes to a variety of areas of the LEED® rating system that can help in achieving a LEED® rating.
