Babcock Ranch: A Builder OverviewJuly 15, 2017
When developer Kitson & Partners began planning for the new town of Babcock Ranch, it sought builders who would adhere to the concepts of green building and sustainability.
That’s because Babcock Ranch is on the leading edge of energy conservation as the nation’s first solar-powered community. For example, the homes’ porches and raised foundations provide natural cooling and the landscaping requires little watering.
Homes at Babcock Ranch achieve energy savings through technology breakthroughs in materials and construction. Some of the features include high performance windows and insulation, tight construction and ducts, efficient heating and cooling equipment and energy saving lighting and appliances. All fixtures, faucets, shower heads, and toilets installed in homes have WaterSense compliant fixtures.
As a result of Kitson’s conservation efforts, the Florida Green Building Coalition has certified the entire town of Babcock Ranch as “green.” The nonprofit organization demands builders and developers adhere to strict standards of environmental sustainability.
Builders who are participating in the eco-friendly town range from the locally owned custom homebuilders to the national companies. But they all have an emphasis on sustainable green building.
