Arlington, VA, October 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Local homebuilder Arlington Designer Homes has been awarded the “Best Green Building – Single Family Home” in the Metropolitan Washington Area in 2013, for a unique and beautiful new home featuring a living green roof and an advanced storm water management system.

The Great American Living Awards (GALA), presented by the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association, Washington Metropolitan Sales & Marketing Council, and the Maryland National Capital Building Industry Association, honors excellence among builders, developers, architects, sales, marketing, merchandising, and advertising professionals in the metropolitan Washington market.

“We are honored that our newest home was selected from among thousands of houses in the region for the best green building award. Arlington Designer Homes has been committed to green home building for a decade – for the health benefits, energy savings, and reduced environmental footprint it provides for our buyers and our community,” said Andrew Moore, President of Arlington Designer Homes.

The new award-winning 3,100 square foot, 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home, located at 2617 N. Nottingham St., features a green design that is truly one of a kind, including extensive storm water management techniques and practices.

“These storm water management techniques include multiple rain gardens, native plants and grasses, permeable pavers and a living green roof,” said Moore, a Certified Green Professional.

The house also features an advanced insulation package, Energy Star Jeld-wen windows, a high-efficiency furnace with a heat pump, 1.28 gallon per flush toilets, pre-finished flooring and siding, and PVC trim for a low maintenance exterior. It is certified under the Energy Star 3.0, Arlington County Green Home Choice, and Home Innovation NGBS Green Certified programs.
