The Magnolia Difference
As a part of Magnolia Property Company’s development strategy and commitment to building with the future in mind, all of our communities are planned with environmental sustainability as a critical priority. Particular attention is paid to the quality of materials used in construction, and the optimization of energy usage.
Almost 90 million tons of construction debris is generated annually in the United States, accounting for 35% of all waste produced. By maximizing the durability of the materials and finishes used during development, we can ensure that our environmental impact is minimized while keeping repair and replacement costs as low as possible over the lifetime of our properties. Magnolia Property Company strives to divert at least 50% of all non-hazardous construction and demolition waste from landfills, and gives preference to salvaged materials and those manufactured regionally using recycled content.
By incorporating ENERGY STAR
-level insulation, made of rapidly renewable or recycled materials where possible, Magnolia Property Company reduces its impact on both the environment and our residents’ electric bills. Our communities also maximize natural lighting and feature landscaping with native drought-resistant plants. Low-E windows and doors, as well as light-colored, reflective roof materials, further increase our energy efficiency.
Additionally, properties developed by Magnolia Property Company also feature:
- CFL and LED lighting packages with motion and daylight sensors
- ENERGY STAR-rated appliances (including thermostats)
- Energy-efficient HVAC units
- Individual unit water metering to promote resident water conservation, as well as high-efficiency plumbing fixtures
Building with sustainability in mind results in lower operating costs, enhances the quality of life for our residents, and maximizes value for our investors and shareholders. To Magnolia Property Company, environmental sustainability is not a trendy concept, but rather a guiding principle that is integral to our success.
