The green building initiative does not stop with a proper design of a house. Low-impact site planning as well as the study of existing infrastructures increases the positive benefits of an environmentally stable building process. For each lot we build on, our knowledge of site development will ensure your high-performance project enhances your life and the life around you.
Proper lot design andpreparation are critical practices in developing subdivisions for the reduction of environmental impacts and to improve the energy performance of both residential housing and commercial buildings. Basic processes include orienting structures to maximize passive solar heat, protecting trees and vegetation that aid in erosion control and engineering onsite storm-water retention and filtration features such as rain gardens and bio-retention areas. We have also re-used materials from the land including trees, rocks, bushes and flowers.
We practice low-impact developing (LID) that utilizes site-specific land planning and design practices, as well as state of the art technologies to both conserve and protect the natural environment and todecrease the infrastructure costs. By designing structures, lots and developments using LID practices, Broyhill Wiles Developing can positively influence the resource efficiency of each home as well as the entire neighborhood's environmental impact.
The Lodges At Chapel Hill:
The Lodges at Chapel Hill is a new custom home neighborhood located off Damascus Church Road just three miles from downtown Chapel Hill. The land has walking trails, large hardwood and conifer trees as well as over 14 acres of undeveloped green space for the neighborhood to enjoy.
The 1400 foot long entrance to The Lodges incorporates open fields and soaring trees with a crossing over beautiful Price Creek. The proximity to University Lake allows boating, sailing and kayaking.
The inspiration for The Lodges community came from the trees. All the homes within the development will contain Timber Framing Techniques used in centuries past. We have taken special care to protect the largest trees on the land as well as practice low impact development through erosion control and rain gardens.
There are 12-two acre home sites sitting on over 44 acres of land. The development backs up to large lots owned and protected by The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The amount of green space and walking trails incorporated into The Lodges at Chapel Hill provide a home with nature. Every home within the development will have green home building techniques.
