Florida Green Building Coalition bestows â€śPlatinumâ€ť award to multiple Lucian residences
The Florida Green Building Coalition, FGBC, has awarded eightÂ Alys BeachÂ condominium residences, located within the propertyâ€™s mixed-use building The Lucian, recipients of the Platinum certification.
Designed by Khoury & Vogt Architects, four of the eight condominiums, Lucian Units # 201, 202, 203, and 301 were named Finalists in FGBCâ€™s Highest Scoring Green Multi-Family award category, with Lucian Unit #202â€™s 230 Platinum score earning Florida Green Building Coalitionâ€™s top 2017 multi-family score, and Alys Beach Lucian Development LLL acclaimed as FGBCâ€™s 2017 Multi-Family Builder of the Year.
â€śSince the founding of Alys Beach in 2004, weâ€™ve made it a priority to build homes that not only can withstand the Gulf weather conditions, but are also responsibly made,â€ť Marieanne Khoury-Vogt, of Khoury & Vogt Architects, says. â€śThe Lucian condominiums follow those same high standards for construction, and this recognition from the Florida Green Building Coalition underscores that commitment.â€ť
In order to obtain residential green certification from the coalition, architects and builders must reach beyond the standard minimum requirements. The Florida Green Building Coalition uses independent third-party experts to review and evaluate a homeâ€™s design and construction in critical areas such as energy performance, water conservation, site conditions, healthy home environment, materials, and disaster mitigation.
Winners were announced at the annual Florida Green Building Coalitionâ€™s Awards Luncheon held in downtown Orlando on March 23, 2018.This entry was posted in Alys Beach News. Bookmark the permalink.
