Slate Hallandale Beach is proud to announce its achievement of the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) v3 High-Rise Residential Gold certification for the luxury rental community located at 101 Diplomat Pkwy, Hallandale Beach, FL. The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is dedicated to improving Florida’s built environment through verified green certification standards for homes, land developments, commercial buildings, high rises, and city and county governments. The sustainable building practices implemented in the development prioritize the health and safety of those who call it home, providing a superior living experience while also reducing its environmental footprint. Slate is the only High-Rise Gold certified development in Hallandale Beach and the third in Broward County to have achieved this tremendous achievement.
“Our commitment to responsible building practices is a top priority, and this certification is a testament to that,” said Ari Pearl, founder and CEO of PPG Development. “We recognize the importance of minimizing our development's impact on the environment while prioritizing the health and well-being of our residents. This certification is a major accomplishment for our team as we continue to strive for excellence in South Florida development."
This accomplishment was made possible through Slate’s sustainability commitment to sustainability and Spinnaker Group’s guidance. Spinnaker Group, a division of SOCOTEC USA, is a well-known and respected leader in the green-building industry with a mission to help facilitate the development of the highest quality sustainable building projects.
“We look forward to continuing to collaborate with Slate Hallandale Beach in leading the way as one of the few rental developments that have chosen to go above and beyond to achieve this green building certification,” said Jonathan Burgess from Spinnaker Group. “We are committed to promoting sustainability in South Florida real estate and Slate Hallandale Beach serves as a prime example of our ongoing efforts to achieve this goal.”
The FGBC certification evaluates the technical performance of buildings based on various factors determined by third-party agents. It allows developers to ensure their properties meet climate-specific green building standards and provide verification of performance. This certification not only demonstrates the developer is environmentally responsible but also assures potential renters that they are living within a safe, sustainable property.
To achieve Florida Green Building Coalition v3 High-Rise Residential Gold certification, buildings are evaluated by six categories which include energy efficiency, water efficiency, site, health, materials and disaster migration.
