Putting a Team Together
We believe that building high quality, high performance homes in a sustainable manner requires an integrated, systematic approach to the design, construction and operation of the home. Sustainable building should take a holistic look at the design and construction of a home and its impact– economically, environmentally, and culturally– on the community and its inhabitants, while at the same time satisfying the needs and lifestyle of its owners. Sustainable building really begins with the community and the setting to be created around the home. Once that is determined, the design, construction, and operation of the home need to be considered.
While it can be a daunting process, if well understood it can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. At Serosun Farms, we have done the homework for you already by creating a sustainable environment within which to build your home. We have researched various technologies and approaches to sustainable building and have recruited an integrated team of builders, architects, consultants, and vendors that make up our green team and green building program. We have created a road map for your journey to owning a sustainable home, have identified the technologies, building practices and products necessary to get there, and have put together a support team that will help smooth your way through what might otherwise be a maze of buzz words and details to your goal. Overall, we feel we have created an efficient, high-quality, and cost effective process.
Design and construction starts with the selection of the team that will help you get there. At Serosun, our master builders and architects are experienced with designing and building high quality custom homes that include green and sustainable elements. Around them, we have built a team of contractors, consultants, and vendors who will provide the best in green technology and products for a high-performance, high-quality sustainable home. Our green team can help you evaluate your options and decide which technologies, approaches, and products are most appropriate for you. We have gathered a team of over 30 consultants, contractors and vendors that are the leading providers in the Chicago area. They have coordinated with each other, and with the builders and architects, to ensure product compatibility and effective implementation. As an added bonus, they are able to provide group buying discounts to Serosun homebuilders.
With this team in place, we can now begin identifying the elements of sustainable home building that most appropriately reflect your goals and lifestyle. Once identified, we will help you understand how to evaluate, implement, and integrate those elements into a home that meets both your needs and Serosun Farm’s sustainable building requirements.
