LLANO RANCH ACHIEVES LEED SILVER RATING

DECEMBER 16, 2010


The U.S. Green Building Council certified Furman + Keil's Llano Ranch Retreat LEED Silver.  The architects teamed with Dalgleish Construction to achieve an energy-efficient family retreat on a 5,000 acre ranch.  The design features reclaimed interior siding, passive ventilation, zero-potable water use for irrigation, and HERS rating of 54.

The building is oriented toward the southeast, not only to take in the surrounding views, but also to minimize solar heat gain, and capture the abundant breezes from that direction.
