USGBC Names 100K House as Project of the Year

The U.S. Green Building Council presented awards for multi- and single-family home projects, production builders, affordable housing projects and developments, and an overall commitment to LEED for Homes.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has named the recipients of its 2010 LEED for Homes Awards, recognizing projects, developers and home builders who have demonstrated leadership in the residential building marketplace.

The awards were presented during the 2010 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo held in Chicago, Ill.

“This year’s winners embody the innovative work of dedicated leaders throughout the residential building community,” said Nate Kredich, vice president, Residential Market Development. “These innovators are helping to transform the market toward more healthy, high-performing homes that are regarded as some of the best in the country.”

The 2010 Project of the Year award was given to the 100K House in Philadelphia, built by Postgreen. The LEED Platinum home was recognized for its outstanding performance and innovation that soared above and beyond the scope, requirements, and prerequisites of LEED. The home was built for less than $100 per square foot by focusing on compact development, streamlining the design and construction process, and focusing on implementing energy-efficiency strategies.

The other winners are:

  • Sacramento Habitat for Humanity, Outstanding Program Commitment;
  • Artistic Homes, Outstanding Production Builder;
  • Blue Sea Development Company, Outstanding Affordable Developer;
  • 304 Talon Court in Wilmington, N.C., built by ILM Design Build, Outstanding Single Family Project;
  • Bastyr Student Housting, Bastyr University, Kenmore, Wash., built by Schuchart Construction, Outstanding Multi-family Project;
  • General Colin L. Powell Apartments, built by Blue Sea Development Company and Habitat for Humanity New York City, Outstanding Affordable Housing Project.

The 2010 LEED for Homes award winners were selected by an independent panel of judges nominated by the LEED for Homes stakeholder community, with winners drawn from among hundreds of nominations received through a public call for nominations.
