Custom Sarasota Home in Bird Key Island

Sarasota Home in Bird Key IslandPerrone Construction in Sarasota doesn’t let size matter. The company is committed to promoting and building green even with its “McMansion” clientele. This custom sarasota home in bird key island is 8,189 s.f. and is touted as being the largest green certified home in Sarasota. It features steel and concrete exterior wall structural elements, Timberstrand recycled engineered studs on interior walls, and Insul-Deck insulated concrete forms floor systems.

The home received multiple green building certifications, including a platinum-level score of 199 from the Florida Green Building Coalition, an emerald rating under the National Green Building Standard, and a LEED silver rating. In addition to the green building certifications, the home earned a Florida Water Star Gold rating for water conservation and, using high-efficiency 16 SEER variable-speed, multi-zone air-conditioning systems to reach a HERS of 59, met the requirements for Energy Star certification under the new, stringent Version 3. Michael Sollitto (Sarasota) was the FGBC Certifying Agent for the project.

As with all green building projects undertaken by Perrone, a comprehensive approach was taken
and each component of the home was evaluated. FSC certified tropical wood products were used
for the custom mahogany entry and garage doors as well as custom built-ins. Low VOC paints
and venetian plaster were used for interior finishes.
