Florida's Showcase Green Envirohome™
Florida's Showcase Green Envirohome™ (FSGE™) has been featured in USA TODAY and touted on FOX News as "The Greenest House In The World". The first-of-its-kind true green home, FSGE, a private membership-based organization, demonstrated the best green building and green living choices and practices available today.
Built to keep giving shelter and water under the most extreme conditions that nature can offer, and while using less energy and requiring less maintenance, FSGE is being rebuilt in Central Florida along the Atlantic coastline with the "best of the best" green building and green living technologies as a:
These technologies include leading edge building envelope, disaster recovery, electropollution elimination/reduction, other considerations of occupants' health including indoor air quality, greenroofs, solar, wind, stormwater management, and other green innovations collectively providing hurricane, tornado, flood, fire, mold, termite, impact, sound, electropollution, and even earthquake resistance.
To ensure stronger, safer, and healthier green construction, FSGE partnered with more than 4 dozen, public, quasi-public and private sector entities, including the United States Department of Energy's (DOE's) Building America Project. FSGE followed 15 sets of green building guidelines and achieved Fortified..for safer living certification and a record-breaking Florida Water Star certification. Commissioned by DOE on behalf of FSGE, Florida Solar Energy Center documented in writing that FSGE "far exceeded" Platinum LEED certification as well as Energy Star Qualified Home certification. To fill in the gaps, FSGE created its own green living guidelines to account for the fact that no mainstream green building guidelines bother to measure or eliminate/mitigate in vivo radiocontamination—due to nearby nuclear plants, nuclear medicine facilities, nuclear disasters, nuclear weaponry/fuel rods at government bases, etc. as well as far away nuclear disasters such as Fukushima, etc.—or electropollution, endocrine disruptors, fluorescent lighting, etc.
University of Central Florida (UCF), the sixth largest university in the U.S., was the first in the world to identify the potential pollution mass in stormwater. Consequently there is now law in the U.S. limiting pollution to our water bodies, both surface water and groundwater. However, residential runoff still accounts for the largest, uncontrolled source of pollution in the U.S., especially in areas with larger annual rainfall volumes (such as in Central Florida). Using results of research from UCF Stormwater Management Academy with assistance from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the world's first residential "greenroof stormwater treatment system" was constructed at FSGE using UCF's patent pending greenroof media coupled with advanced hurricane mitigation features. This is one of FSGE's key features as a Near Zero-Runoff Home™.
