EYA’s long-standing commitment to environmentally friendly home design is now enhanced by third-party verification of important installations in all homes. In addition to LEED for Homes certification, the following systems are now inspected by a third-party verifier:

  • Building envelope wrap and flashing details
  • Quality of insulation installation
  • Blower door test
  • Duct leakage test
  • Exhaust fan performance
  • Kitchen exhaust performance
  • Pest control techniques
  • Mechanical ventilation performance

Green building techniques, such as third-party verification, ensure that even the best laid plans are properly implemented in new home construction. It’s one of the many ways we’re building a smarter, greener home. Learn more about EYA’s “smart city living” efforts here.

Remove the burden of boxes and make sure every item in every room of your new home serves a function and purpose for your life, right now. 

Your personal Move Concierge will take stock of your possessions, help you purge things you no longer need and create a customized plan that compliments your lifestyle – bringing order and efficiency, but more important balance and calm, to your new home. There’s no detail that we don’t handle to create your perfect space.”
