Construction has begun!

Welcome to the Walton Residence, located walking distance to the beach and a short bike ride to the Santa Monica Pier. Santa Monica is one of California's most committed cities to the green building movement, with ambitious local code requirements such as 15% greater energy efficiency than required by the CA Energy Code and greater than 70% construction waste diversion from landfills.

This project aims to achieve the US Green Building Council's LEED certification by ensuring that all practices on the jobsite and materials used shall be as eco-friendly as reasonably possible. We plan to document the journey through this blog - which will have artistic renderings and more photo updates to follow!
