Architectural firm LG Squared collaborated with the Imery Group on construction of the two-story, 2,600-square-foot Proud Green Home project, which was built in Atlanta’s famed sustainable community, Serenbe. The Home Energy Ratings System score of -2 is an amazing achievement for the project, especially considering that most newly constructed high-performing homes score within the 50-60 range.

The Proud Green Home project is a true powerhouse of efficiency and accordingly, various accolades have been rolling in since its completion. In addition to breaking records with its Home Energy Rating score, the design also earned an EarthCraft Platinum Certification, which is awarded by the EarthCraft House Program, a residential green building program that specifically focuses on climate conditions and building practices in the Southeast. The Imery home is the highest scoring project to date under the current EarthCraft program.
