Sustainability Features - Westshore
Our Commitment to Sustainability
At Westshore, we're striving to achieve a host of sustainability objectives, including increasing the extent of tree canopy cover, creating habitat for birds and wildlife, ensuring durable materials are used, and moderating microclimate to enhance homeowner comfort.
Water-efficient fixtures to help reduce consumption by up to 30% and protect residents from rising utility costs.
Healthier materials and finishes such as low VOC paint and Green Label Plus-certified carpeting will improve indoor air quality.
Connections to Nature
Easy access to nature and proximity to local parks, encouraging you to enjoy the restorative energy of the outdoors.
Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations available. All spaces will include infrastructure, making it easier and more cost-effective to install in the future.
High Performance Mechanical Systems
Efficient mechanical systems include an Energy Recovery Ventilation system that delivers fresh, filtered air throughout the home.
Enhanced Building Envelope
A high-performance envelope is designed to reduce heating and cooling needs through higher insulation values, high-performance windows and air-tight construction practices - providing both utility cost savings and improved comfort conditions. A sample of homes is tested by a third party to verify air tightness.
Energy Star Multifamily Certification
Westshore is targeting ENERGY STAR Multifamily High Rise certification. This means that the homes are performance-tested and third-party verified by industry professionals to ensure they meet rigorous industry standards. A focus on energy efficiency and air tightness results in a minimum 15% improvement in energy efficiency versus a code-built home.
