Greenway Townhouses is a sustainable project of Arbor South in River Road, Eugene, Oregon. There are 11 units available with sustainable design applied. LEED Gold Certification is now targeted to be achieved.
These green sustainable buildings have some sustainable features applied to achieve high sustainability. They have energy efficient appliances, such as LED lighting, energy star appliances, CFL, etc. They also were completed by good insulation, high efficiency package terminal heat pump for heating and air conditioning, low flow and dual flush toilets, etc.
They used sustainable materials, such as high fly ash content concrete and locally-sourced lumber for the construction. Non-VOC and durable finishing materials were also applied. To provide fresh air ventilation in bath room, without the expense of a ducted HRV, a small bath fan with occupancy sensor is also available.
The green architecture building has good performance enclosure, to provide good energy efficiency. This can be seen from the blower door tests result (between 2.1 and 2.6 air changes, compared to Energy Star that has to be 4.0 or less). It has two bedrooms with own vanity and alcove with a shared toilet and shower for each, and a half-bath downstairs with a full-size washer, also dryer.
The green architecture buildings are expected to achieve green building certification of LEED Gold level. They have achieved Earth Advantage Platinum already.
