Sustainable Accoya® Home Receives Platinum LEED Certification

One of the USA’s most sustainable family homes, constructed with the extensive use of Accoya wood, has been awarded platinum level LEED certification – the highest recognition available from the US Green Building Council.

The 4,211 sq. ft. custom built single family residence in California’s desirable Newport Beach has become a benchmark in Energy and Environmental Design for Homes and will serve as an educational tool for the local and international community to showcase stewardship of the environment.

Accoya was used for the fascia of the house, as well as for additional features including the balcony railing, rain screen siding, garage doors, jamb and decorative beams.
