Company NewsO'Neill Development, along with David Peabody Architects, has completed and sold the "Passive House" at 4717 Chelsea Lane in Bethesda, MD. This super insulated home is designed to look like a traditional American Four Square house and is the first of its kind in this region. Our Passive House is nearly airtight. It uses roughly 90% less heating and cooling energy than the average home. It is designed as an integrated system, with site, energy, ventilation, air quality, humidity, health and comfort all taken into account. There will be constantly re-circulating fresh air, even temperatures throughout the house and "green" materials as standard. USA TODAY, BLOOMBERG NEWS, NPR AND local TV and BETHESDA MAGAZINE have featured our Passive House in recent articles and segments. And the Maryland-National Capital Building Industry Association awarded us with their Annual Green Building Award for our Passive House. It is fitting that the buyer of the Chelsea house is the CEO of CADMUS GROUP of Arlington VA, “an energy, environmental and public health consulting company providing creative, multidisciplinary sustainability solutions for the built environment”.
