A bird’s-eye view of Grow Community phase 1

PHC Construction of Bainbridge Island has been honored with a 2014 Built Green Hammer award by the Master Builders Association.

The award recognizes Built Green members for outstanding projects from the previous year.

PHC Construction is being honored in the “Builder, Small Production” category for the Grow Community project in Winslow.

“We’re very honored to receive this prestigious recognition,” said Marty Sievertson, PHC Construction principal.

“Our goal has been to help make Grow Community the healthiest, most environmentally friendly project possible, and to show what’s possible in sustainable construction. This award is a great endorsement of how a sustainable project can be a success,” Sievertson said.

The 8-acre Grow Community is the largest planned solar community in Washington state, with ultra-efficient, net-zero energy homes, neighborhood gardens and green spaces, healthy transportation options and other sustainable features. The community offers intentional, intergenerational living and a new “aging in place” focus on accessibility.

The project’s first phase, the Village, is nearing completion, with groundbreaking this past week on its next two neighborhoods, the Grove and the Park.

Built Green is a program of the Master Builders Association in partnership with local counties.

The program is designed to help homebuyers find quality, affordable homes that offer opportunities to protect the health of their families and the Northwest environment. Built Green homes are designed to provide homeowners with comfortable, durable, environmentally friendly homes that are cost-effective to own and maintain.

The award will be presented at the 2014 Built Green Conference, planned for Sept. 18 in Seattle.
