It’s being hailed as Miami’s first LEED Platinum single-family home – and we’re excited to be part of it!
Called Moreland on Trapp, the home was designed by architect Randall Moreland, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C.. He and his wife looked all over Miami for the perfect place, and in the end, decided to build their dream home themselves. Both brought similar sustainable mindsets to the table, and they wanted their new home to both reflect and support this lifestyle.
As always, the weather in Miami was an important factor. Between maintaining a comfortable temperature within the home and keeping the crazy weather at bay, window choice was a key element during construction.
Moreland had worked with CGI before and liked what he saw, both with our products and the design elements we incorporate into every door and window. Of special interest to him: window strength, third-party testing, and verification of impact rating. The end result: he chose a nice mix of awning, casement, and slider profiles for his new home.
This house is setting an important benchmark for our area, and we at CGI are proud to be part of it.
Moreland and his family have since moved in; here are a few pictures, courtesy, of Randall Moreland, to illustrate the sheer beauty of this home:
