Certifications: LEED Platinum
The Sumer Residence is ideally located a few blocks from the Solana Beach train station, beach, and bustling Cedros Avenue. The Sumers rebuilt their home through Naylor Construction with the goal of being as environmentally conscious as possible. Alliance Green Builders provided LEED consulting services to help them achieve their goal of LEED Platinum, the highest level of Certification. It is especially impressive and challenging for a remodel to achieve LEED Platinum because there are built-in constraints such as existing walls, windows facing certain ways, etc., which all affect energy modeling. High Title 24 scores (CA energy modeling) can earn many points in LEED and it’s very difficult for a remodeled home to earn a high score with existing limitations. For this home to have come in 12.5 above the threshold is an achievement to be proud of!
