BUILDER MAGAZINE RECOGNIZES THE OLSON COMPANY AS A TRAILBLAZER IN LEED CERTIFICATION AMONGST OTHER TOP HOME BUILDERS

November 14th, 2014

California-based Home Builder is the Only One Listed on the
Builder 100/Next 100 List to Certify 100 Percent of its Homes to LEED Certification

In the October issue of the industry leading trade publication Builder Magazine, The Olson Company is singled out as the only builder on the prominent Builder 100/Next 100 List to certify 100 percent of its homes as LEED Certified. The majority of Olson’s LEED points are generated by designing to LEED standards.  Building in urban areas also garners them points for using existing utilities and being in close proximity to local businesses and transit.
President and CEO, Scott Laurie explains all employees play a part in The Olson Company’s commitment to green building. “It’s a culture where everyone from land acquisitions to sales has it ingrained,” said Laurie.
The Olson Company currently spends an average of $2,000 for energy-efficient construction upgrades per house, plus an additional $5,100 for solar for a total of $7,100.  The article predicts that “green builders,” like The Olson Company, are ahead of the curve by preparing for future building requirements.
“The Olson Company will continue to focus on energy efficient homes that benefit the home buyers and communities we develop” said Laurie.
