HOW WE GOT HERE
In 2004, Patty Shields left a successful legal career to pursue her passion for designing and building homes. Her work quickly focused on the then developing concept of “green” homes and the rapid advances in residential building science. Founded in 2006, Metro Green has become a local leader in deep green residential construction and remodeling.
Class “A” Licensed – USGBC LEED AP – Energy Star Partner – PHIUS pre-certified home builder – Arlington Green Home Choice Builder
Our high performance building requires learned crews and tight oversight. We limit our projects to only a few per year so that Patty can be on site daily to ensure that sustainability/workmanship goals are being met. (Link to build design process page)
THE SCIENCE OF BUILDING BETTER HOUSES
We believe in Science. From our completion of the 1st LEED Platinum home in the DMV area (2008), to our 2014 Donaldson Run PHIUS pre-certified Passive House, our physics-based understanding of building function has transformed our progress. The high performance building practices gleaned from these cutting edge homes are applied to every project we undertake. READ MORE (link to new Building Science tab)
