Building a Green Home: Reducing Construction Waste


A sustainable approach to new home building includes a responsible strategy for minimizing construction waste. Pardee Homes VP of Construction Ralph Pistone is onsite at our LivingSmart Homes community at Fair Oaks Ranch, and shares some of the steps we take to reduce and recycle on the jobsite.

LivingSmart Homes at Fair Oaks Ranch recently met the new Gold level criteria of the National Green Building Standard, and is the first neighborhood in California to earn the National Green Building Standard Gold Certification. (The NGBS was developed by the National Association of Home Builders Research Center and is intended to be a nationwide green building standard for residential construction.)

Every home in our new LivingSmart® Homes in Santa Clarita’s Fair Oaks Ranch®, is being built to Gold-level criteria of the NGBS, inspected at least twice by an accredited green verifier, and Green Certified by the Research Center.
