BEAM Systems meet a growing demand of buyers for healthier living environments.

The 14th annual BUILDER Concept Home series to debut at the 2012 International Builders Show in Orlando, Fla., will encompass three distinct homes, each reflecting the lifestyle needs of an important demographic group, specifically Gen X, Gen Y, and Gen B (or Baby Boomers).

Set side-by-side on a cul-de-sac, the trio of homes will be available for free guided tours to IBS 2012 attendees from February 8-11, and will serve as model homes for a 1,900-unit section of the Eagle Creek community near Orlando’s Lake Nona. The Baby Boomer house also will be rendered as a comprehensive, photo-realistic virtual tour within the project website at

The project represents a significant and market-driven shift for residential development in the current economy. “To be economically and socially viable, new master plan communities have to appeal to a broad spectrum of potential buyers with homes that take into account different lifestyle needs,” says Boyce Thompson, BUILDER’S editorial director. “Homes must also be flexible enough to adapt as household circumstances change.”

The BUILDER Concept Home 2012 also will showcase important shifts in development and home-design strategies, including the product applications that make the project successful.

BEAM Serenity IQS Central Vacuum Systems by Electrolux will assure cleaner, healthier living in both the Gen B and Gen X homes.

“The BEAM systems meet a growing demand of buyers for healthier living environments,” says Brian Campbell, BEAM program manager. “Our systems’ ability to capture more dirt and allergens and completely remove them from the living area helps homes meet green building standards for indoor environmental quality.”

BUILDER commissioned a prestigious project team for the 2012 Concept Home. The builder, Centerline Homes, is the largest private builder in Southern Florida. Woodley Architectural Group, Inc., of Littleton, Colo., designed the Gen Y and Gen B homes, while Canin Associates of Orlando designed the Gen X home and provided the landscape plan for the project. Kay Green Design, Inc., also based in Orlando, will be responsible for the interior design and merchandising of all three homes. Emerson International, Inc. is the development partner.

“Our 2012 project partners serve as benchmarks for quality and innovation,” said Warren Nesbitt, executive director of Hanley’s Wood Residential New Construction Group. “Their expertise and collaboration will make the BUILDER Concept Home 2012 one of our most exciting projects to date.”
