Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 27, 2008
Postgreen joined the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to be more involved with the LEED green building rating system. Postgreen is a small real estate development company focusing on green, modern and affordable development in Philadelphia - http://www.postgreen.com
Postgreen's President, Chad Ludeman, has been a member of the local chapter of the USGBC - the Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC) - since 2006. "Now that Postgreen is gaining momentum as a green real estate development company, we felt it was important to officially join the ranks of the members at the USGBC," said Chad Ludeman. "We are embarking on our first LEED for Homes project and feel it is important to both support and contribute to the evolving LEED standards that will continue to shape green building in the US and throughout the world."
Postgreen is currently working on their "100K House" project where they will be seeking LEED for Homes certification on two homes. Currently they are seeking LEED Gold at a minimum and may have slight chance at reaching Platinum on one of the homes. The project gets its name from the goal of building a modern and green home for a construction budget of only $100,000 USD and $100 per square foot.
Postgreen is a real estate development company focusing on modern, green and affordable buildings and homes in Philadelphia's urban neighborhoods. Our success is measured using a triple-bottom-line approach that ensures that each project benefits not only the bottom line, but the people in our community and the planet as a whole.
