Alton Wins 2016 Aurora Award for Green Building

The Southeastern Building Conference recently awarded ALTON the prestigious Aurora Award for 'Best Green Construction'.

With a "Live Forward" commitment to innovation and future-focused home design, Kolter Homes developed and implemented successful products and concepts at ALTON to provide maximum efficiency and peace of mind for its residents. These products include double-pane, insulated, low-emissivity impact windows and doors, GE Profile Energy Star rated appliances, and Low VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint & carpet for a healthier home.

Kolter also incorporated a variety of new construction concepts such as fiber mesh reinforced monolithic concrete in their foundation designs, spray foam insulation for superior energy performance, and the use of Gyp-Crete in the 2nd-story flooring system given its exceptional sound and fire control properties.

"It is an honor to receive this recognition and reaffirms the focus and care we put into building healthier, sustainable homes," said ALTON Project Director Steve Bovio.

Beyond awards, ALTON models are earning Healthy Home, Energy Efficiency and Green certifications from some of the industry's best such as U.S. Green Building Council and National Home Building Association.
