For Earth Day 2012, Pardee Homes will be busy doing what it’s been doing for a long time: building award-winning greener homes and more sustainable communities in Nevada and California. For Pardee Homes, Earth Day truly is every day, and has been for more than 14 years.
“Pardee Homes is proud to be part of the global story of environmental awareness symbolized by Earth Day,” said Joyce Mason, vice president of marketing for Pardee Homes. “As more people join the effort, and as more green commitments are made or expanded, it’s a story that builds incrementally—very much like the green programs at Pardee Homes.”
In Southern Nevada, Pardee has opened three LivingSmart® Homes neighborhoods since January in three distinct master-planned communities – Mountain’s Edge, Providence and Eldorado.
Pardee’s exclusive LivingSmart® brand is a program with standard and optional measures that boost energy efficiency, save water, improve indoor air quality and encourage material conservation and the use of recycled or sustainable resources in new homes. LivingSmart provides more than 30 earth-friendly standard and optional systems and features for new-home buyers, and it applies to every newly designed home the company offers.
The builder’s “earth days” began modestly, with a couple of new home design lines that delivered exceptional, above-code energy efficiencies, which in turn translated into measurable cost savings for the homebuyer. As these homes came to market in Las Vegas in 1998, the company was already moving to do more, working with green-build experts, architects and product suppliers to grow its green program.
“For all price points, our goal is smarter, greener homes that make a comfortable and stylish quality statement,” said Mason. “From this foundation, we tailor green standards and options to fit the home’s design, location, and buyers, and then show our buyers that they can trust the green claims, via independent inspections.”
“Greener homes are high-performance, economical to operate and with lower maintenance,” she said. “When you put such homes in communities that also offer quality schools, recreation, shopping, employment and transit, you have a more sustainable way to live, and this is certainly a big part of ‘life made easier’ for our homebuyers.
