Reaching the platinum standard in living green

Going platinum typically refers to soaring success in the music business. But for Reno and Lory Volpi’s inner-city home, it’s a high note of a different kind. The 2,400-square-foot Winston Heights bungalow by Landmark Homes has been awarded platinum status, which is the highest rating through Built Green Canada. The third-party certification program measures a home’s energy-efficiency based on a checklist, taking stock of the materials and methods that went into the build. Reno and Lory’s home was the only built within Calgary city limits to achieve platinum status in 2015.
