Sustainability. Social Innovation

At Northwood Ravin, we evaluate each opportunity carefully to ensure it is appropriate for the Northwood Ravin signature. After all, just because we can build it doesn’t mean we should.

We take our role very seriously in shaping the future of the communities we build. Whether we enhance an urban environment and promote a pedestrian-friendly center by mixing uses, or preserve valuable wildlife and tree canopies, we are committed to creating a sustainable future.

As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a non-profit organization committed to expanding sustainable practices, and registered EarthCraft and EnergyStar™ builder, Northwood Ravin works to create environmentally responsible communities and healthy places to live. Several of our communities are LEED®, EnergyStar™ or EarthCraft registered. We are also currently building to the NAHB Home Innovation Research Labs standard, known as the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) certification, and the GBI standard, pursuing the Green Globes certification. In fact, both St. Mary’s Square and Lofts at Weston Lakeside recently received the National Green Building Standard Bronze Certification.

Because thinking sustainably doesn’t stop after a building is constructed, Northwood Ravin has created the NWR Resident Green Guide, which is available online to all Northwood Ravin residents. The guide provides sustainable measures which can be incorporated into everyday life to ensure safe and environmentally friendly maintenance and upkeep of all Northwood Ravin residences.
