LEED for Homes Project Wins National Award
Murphy Brothers Contracting's LEED for Homes project was recognized with a 2013 Chrysalis Award for Remodeling Excellence, receiving a "Best Green Remodeling Project " Regional Award. Designed by Hastings architect Christina Griffin, this 1950's ranch was transformed into a model of sustainable living. The primary goal of the project was to balance low energy use with green materials to achieve a LEED for Homes Gold rating, anticipated to be the first LEED for Homes project in White Plains, NY, and the first single family LEED for Homes project in Westchester County. The Chrysalis Awards have been recognizing the nation's best remodeling and design work for nearly 20 years. Winning projects were selected from over 300 entries judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure. This award is not only a recognition of great design work, and diligent efforts of all the trades and suppliers involved, but also the acknowledgement of owner (and Eco-Broker) Gerry Angel whose priority was to transform her home into a model of sustainability in order to inspire others to think green when they plan to build, remodel, or retrofit their own homes.
