Florida's Seabourn Cove Hoping to Become Largest Gold NGBS-Certified Multifamily Project

Boynton Beach, FL - Today Home Innovation Research Labs President & CEO Michael Luzier presented a gold-level green certification to the builder of Boynton Beach’s Seabourn Cove, a gated community of 456 high-end rental homes. The certification was for the community’s first building certified to the National Green Building Standard ICC 700-2008 (NGBS), but builder FM Contract Services, LLC, hopes this is just the first of many. The company will seek gold NGBS certification for all residential buildings in the community. If all goes as planned, Seabourn Cove will be by far the largest gold-level multifamily community certified by Home Innovation Research Labs.

The ceremony where the NGBS certification was presented was also Seabourn Cove’s ribbon cutting. Luzier and builder and community executives were also joined by Boynton Beach Mayor Woodrow Hay and members of the city commission.

FM Contract Services is confident in its ability to achieve gold certification for all Seabourn Cove residences based on the strategic mix of sustainable design, materials, and construction techniques used throughout the community. This combination will not only garner national certification and praise, but should also result in a healthier, more cost-effective home in a more sustainable environment for its residents. Some of the benefits the community touts include:

This 23-acre green community was created by FM Contract Services’ developers Charles Funk, Jeff Meehan, and Rick Lococo in cooperation with the City of Boynton Beach as part of its drive to become the epicenter of sustainable living in Florida.
