Boral Roofing and Boral Bricks Proud Sponsors of Marc Rutenberg Homes Zero Energy America

Grand Opening of Net Zero Energy Usage Home Community to be Held on November 29th

 
PRLog - Nov. 28, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- Palm Harbor, FL (November 28, 2012) Boral Roofing and Boral Bricks are proud sponsors of Marc Rutenberg Homes’ Zero Energy America, a planned model home community with net zero energy usage. Located outside of Tampa, Florida, the Grand Opening and Media Day for the first Zero Energy Home, the Castaway III, will be held on November 29th, 2012.

Beginning at 11a.m. and running through 3p.m., sponsor demonstrations will be held for media, manufacturers, and dignitaries, and doors will open to the beautiful and sustainable Castaway III home. The Grand Opening Celebration will follow at 6p.m., giving visitors a chance to mingle with the minds behind Zero Energy America.

Marc Rutenberg’s Zero Energy America is a project conceived to change the way the world looks at green living. The goal was to create a net zero energy bill while still maintaining the sense of luxury and liveability we have come to expect. The result is the Castaway III, stunning LEED Platinum home that exemplifies efficiency from the ground up.

Boral has a strong commitment to green building and is proud to be a sponsor of the next generation of eco-construction. Boral Roofing donated the clay roof tiles for the Castaway III and Boral Bricks donated the pavers for the inviting front driveway, both Cradle-to-Cradle certified products.

The interest and excitement over Zero Energy America has led to a PBS documentary on the project, to air next year. The show will document the process of building the next generation home and makes a stop at Boral Bricks’ LEED Platinum Terre Haute manufacturing plant, the largest of its kind in the United States.

The Grand Opening will be held at Hawks Landing, 2712 Deer Track Way, Palm Harbor, Florida 34685. For information, please contact Event Coordinator Lis Begin at (727) 243-6965 or lis@beginproductions.com
