Philadelphia, PA – January 14, 2009 – Postgreen, the development company behind the 100k House Project, has partnered with Greenable, Philadelphia’s top provider of green building materials to offer an increased line of finishes in the 100k House model while maintaining their commitment to affordability and quality design. Greenable’s access to materials and their knowledge of green building will be invaluable in preparing finish packages for Postgreen’s homes.
“We see this partnership with Greenable as a reinforcement of our commitment to both sustainability and design,” says Chad Ludeman, President of Postgreen, “We are building affordable, green homes, but that doesn’t mean we are willing to forgo quality aesthetics.”
Greenable also brings the ability to provide green interior design expertise to Postgreen’s buyers. Customers purchasing one of Postgreen’s LEED Platinum houses, and hoping to match their interior with the sustainable, modern design of their new home, will find Greenable a great resource. Architecturally unique and healthy homes like the 100k models, will be well served by design that respects function, indoor air quality, sustainability and style.
“Most people believe the myth that building green costs more,” says Greenable’s Design Director and co-founder Lynne Templeton, “This is not at all true and we are proving it now in a big way.”
Moving forward, Postgreen will provide Greenable with an ongoing showcase for their design expertise and material solutions. And Postgreen’s constant push to improve every aspect of their homes through the exploration of new materials and methodologies offers an excellent opportunity for Greenable to test innovative concepts in real life applications. Together, Postgreen and Greenable are commited to introducing the world to increasingly more effective green solutions.
“There is a wonderful opportunity here for both companies to flex their creative muscle and produce a product that will surely set new standards for beautiful, efficient, and affordable green buildings and homes,” says Greenable co-founder Angelo Anastasio.
“We expect this partnership to grow and evolve,” says Nic Darling of Postgreen, “As we continue to refine our design and improve the sustainability of our homes, Greenable’s knowledge of materials and building science will be extremely valuable.”
The two companies share common goals for the future of green building in Philadelphia. Together they position themselves as a driving force behind Philly’s goal to become America’s greenest city.
