Di Loreto Homes wins green building award



Di Loreto Homes of Nevada was one of several builders, remodelers and other home building industry professionals nationwide to be honored as the winner of the NAHB Green 2013 Project of the Year Single Family-Small Volume Award given by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The awards were presented Wednesday January 23, 2013 during the International Builder’s Show (IBS) in Las Vegas.

“We are honored to receive this award and see tremendous value and importance in our participation in the NAHB Green Certification program in conjunction with the Builders Association of Northern Nevada,” said Perry Di Loreto, President of Di Loreto Homes. “Building homes to the ICC700 National Green Building Standard enables us to provide our homeowners a more sustainable home that will actually enhance the environment in which they are being built.”

Di Loreto Homes, the only winner from Nevada, was selected out of a large number of applicants to receive the award based on their commitment to the environment and effort to build green in their latest single-family home project, The New Edition at Damonte Ranch. These homes were the first in the state of Nevada to receive a certification to the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard.

Comments from the NAHB judges included this statement:

“This home incorporates high performance features to achieve certification while still meeting the demands of the market in Nevada and demonstrating a commitment to sustainability.”

Each year, NAHB recognizes individuals, companies and organizations for excellence in residential green design and construction practices and for green building program and advocacy efforts.

“This year’s winners are particularly impressive,” said NAHB Chairman Barry Rutenberg, a home builder from Gainsville, Fla. “All of those honored have shown superior dedication and leadership to the mission of sustainable and eco-friendly living.”
