At Mandel Group, we are proud to be “eco-friendly.” We are committed to environmentally responsible real estate development in a way that far outpaces the “green” claims of companies today. It’s important to us today and for the future — after all, residential and commercial buildings account for a whopping 43% of the energy consumed on our planet! Mandel Group’s “eco-friendly” initiative is engineered to achieve not only environmental goals but also to enhance the livability of your new Mandel home. Here’s how.

Energy efficiency

Any environmentally-conscious developer needs to be serious about energy efficiency. We’re looking at all of the ways in which our buildings promote and incorporate energy efficient design and engineering. Our buildings include sophisticated heating and cooling systems using the highest efficiency equipment and state-of-the-art products. Within each home, we only use the most highly-rated Energy-Star appliances and thoughtfully incorporate new energy-efficient technologies

Indoor environmental quality

Your home’s environment needs to be friendly to you, as well as the environment. Our homes are characterized by highly efficient wall and floor systems, high-efficiency air purification filters, and huge exterior window walls to transfer light between multiple rooms.

The result is a home that is quiet, with incredible air quality, and plentiful soothing natural light throughout.

Environmentally responsible building materials

Today it seems as though everyone wants to say that their product is “green”. What does this really mean? Is it “green” to transport solvent-impregnated bamboo flooring from China? Is it “green” if a building material suffers from a short lifespan? Is it “green” if the manufacturing process has no respect for environmental or labor standards? We constantly evaluate building components to come up with the most responsible materials for your home. Our hardwood floors are harvested and milled in Wisconsin — 4 trees are replanted for every one that is cut. We use Kohler plumbing fixtures manufactured in Kohler, Wisconsin, rather than transport fixtures from overseas. And we emphasize sustainability — materials that are tough at the start and built to last. After all, longevity is one of the most environmentally responsible goals we can achieve.
