FLORIDA’S SEABOURN COVE HOPING TO BECOME LARGEST GOLD NGBS-CERTIFIED MULTIFAMILY PROJECT

Boynton Beach, FL – June 28, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Today NAHB Research Center President & CEO Michael Luzier presented a gold-level green certification to the builder of Boynton Beach’s Seabourn Cove, a gated community of 456 high-end rental homes. The certification was for the community’s first building certified to the National Green Building Standard ICC 700-2008 (NGBS), but builder FM Contract Services, LLC, hopes this is just the first of many. The company will seek gold NGBS certification for all residential buildings in the community. If all goes as planned, Seabourn Cove will be by far the largest gold-level multifamily community certified by the NAHB Research Center.
