Green Building Gets a Boost in Bethesda

SEED Homes' Move to Downtown Adds to the Growing List of Green Builders in the Area

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) - SEED -- a home building company dedicated to sustainable, energy-efficient home building -- has completed its move to Bethesda, MD. "Bethesda is rapidly becoming the hotspot for green building in the area, as the community thrives to live a more sustainable lifestyle," said Rachel Puri, Manager of Operations at SEED. "We have upcoming projects in Bethesda and are glad to be part of the growing community of green builders headquartered here."

The new home for SEED is the Peripoint building, the first "green" commercial building in downtown Bethesda. The building, designed by architect Michael Belisle, is equipped with many energy-efficient features and sustainable materials, and is targeted for LEED certification by the US Green Building Council. "Not only do we try to build in a sustainable way, but we try to operate that way too. That is why we are so excited to work out of the Peripoint building," says Puri.

SEED -- formerly based out of Rockville, MD -- was formed by experienced builders and designers who decided to focus solely on sustainable construction. They currently have projects in Mclean, VA and Bethesda, MD. The McLean project is set to achieve LEED Gold certification by the US Green Building Council and the Bethesda project is targeted for LEED Platinum. Their name, SEED, is an acronym representing their goals for homebuilding: Sustainable, Energy-Efficient Design. Find out more about SEED at www.SEEDHomes.com
