PR Newswire PR NewswireNew World Home Goes Platinum in New York With Two Historic Green Milestones

Achievements Include:

– First LEED Platinum Factory-Built Home in New York

– First LEED Platinum Home of Any Type in New York Designed Without Need for Renewable Energy Sources

For the second time this year, New World Home has achieved a historic milestone in green housing by obtaining LEED(R) for Homes Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The company has created the first factory-built home in New York State to earn LEED Platinum certification, as well as the first home of any type in New York to earn the prestigious Platinum rating without the need for any costly renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, wind turbines or geothermal systems. The home is one of only two to ever obtain LEED Platinum certification in New York. The New World Home project, located in Youngsville, Sullivan County, also earned ENERGY STAR(R) certification.

“Earlier in the year, we attained LEED Platinum certification for one of our homes in Atlanta, and we are extremely excited to replicate that achievement here in New York,” says Mark Jupiter, Co-Founder and President of the Product Division for New World Home. “It reinforces our ability to deliver quality green homes that are so efficient at a core level that they don’t require the use of renewable energy sources.

The New York Times talks to a satisfied owner of a New World Home:

A GLANCE at Lawrence Greene’s rustic colonial with wraparound porch in Livingston Manor, N.Y., might lead one to believe it’s a 150-year-old farmhouse. In fact, it’s two years old, one of the greenest houses in New York State, and built in a factory.

The 1,800-square-foot structure was constructed by New World Home, a company that offers environmentally responsible prefabricated houses in a variety of architectural styles.

Mr. Greene, a trademark lawyer with a Manhattan firm, bought the three-bedroom modular house for $360,000 in March and uses it on weekends.

“It’s a house that one can feel good about living in if one is trying to live green,” Mr. Greene said. “At the same time, one can enjoy the house because it has such an innate charm.”

Mr. Greene’s house has double-paned windows for insulation, and ceiling fans and cross-ventilation cool the home without air-conditioning.

“The front door doesn’t even have a storm door,” Mr. Greene said. “And it’s so secure and airtight that no cold air gets inside in the winter, and it’s perfectly cool when you walk inside in the summer on the hottest day.”

Forced Green blog takes a look inside a New World Home:

A New Old Green Modular home is considered ‘green’ along several dimensions. New World Home is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and is actively engaged in The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, LEED for Homes. New World Home is currently on target to produce the first factory-built house to achieve the USGBC LEED for Homes PLATINUM rating in New York State.


ConcreteMagNew World Home was the first factory-built home in the state of Georgia to achieve Platinum LEED certification. The homes in East Cobb County also received the EarthCraft Gold certification as well as the National Association of Home Builders’ National Green Building Certification Gold. Concrete Products magazine has the details [PDF].


In New York House [download PDF], the home and real estate magazine for smarter living, Linsday Suchow profiles what New World Home is trying to do in New York State:

Atop a picturesque hill on a quiet country road in Jeffersonville lies a 2,417-square foot colonial-style home. A sprawling front porch is adorned with a swinging bench and rocking chairs. The air inside is cool and crisp; the rooms splashed with natural light; the décor rustic and rural, with a lived-in comfortable feel.

It’s not exactly the image that comes to mind when one thinks of a modular home. And that’s precisely what the co-founders of New World Home, Mark Jupiter and Tyler Schmetterer, are looking to change.
