Minto named one of Top 15 Home Builders by Florida Green Building Coalition
Minto Communities was honored by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) as one of Florida’s Top 15 Green Home Builders at a recent awards banquet that took place during the 2015 Green Trends Conference in Orlando.
According to FGBC Executive Director Suzanne Cook, “These builders are being recognized for their conscientious green building efforts in creating healthier and safer homes and a more sustainable Florida. As FGBC marks its 15th anniversary, we are pleased to salute their contributions to creating more resilient communities and protecting Florida’s natural resources.”
FGBC is the leading certifier of green projects in Florida. Its certification programs are the only standards developed with climate-specific criteria to address issues caused by Florida’s hot and humid environment. FGBC certified homes complete a technically rigorous building assessment and construction process to promote design and construction practices that reduce negative environmental impacts, improve occupant health and well-being, and reduce owner operating costs.
Minto’s new home communities in Florida include The Isles of Collier Preserve in Naples, TwinEagles in Naples, Harbour Isle in Bradenton, and Sun City Center in the Tampa Bay area. In addition, Minto is building in Festival at Champions Gate in Orlando, the Laureate Park neighborhood at Lake Nona in Orlando, LakePark and TownPark at Tradition in Port St. Lucie, and Villas By The Sea in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
Founded in 1955, Minto is a family-owned business that has grown over the last 60 years into one of North America’s leading builders, with more than 80,000 homes built, including 25,000 in Florida in 44 communities throughout the state. For information, visit mintofla.com.
