We live in a time in which people are more environmentally conscious than ever. Media highlights the danger our ecological footprint is having on the wider natural world, as we see with the melting ice caps in Antarctica to the rising sea levels and severe storm all over the planet. Whilst many assume we can directly do anything as citizens to change this, there is still a strong movement to reduce our personal environmental footprint. Using different power methods, energy saving material and less water and electricity, and recycling may only seem like small steps, but can all help us make a difference in the long run. More than ever we are turning to ask questions of our living environments, and ask what we can do at home to help.
Following this the demand for ecologically friendly housing is on the rise, and property developers with strong ethics in this area are seeing a huge rise in popularity. Two such people, Marcus Hiles and Nancy Hiles- real estate CEOs and leaders of Western Rim Properties are committed to making their housing developments as environmentally friendly as possible. Bot born and raised Texans, they too ave an extra motive to lessen the impact on the beautiful nature that makes Texas such a glorious state. Marcus and Nancy Hiles’ commitment to develop Eco-friendly apartments is an integral part of the company vision.
As they say in their manifesto, ”Each of our apartment homes is designed in concert with nature to conserve energy”, and it can be seen in the materials used in their developments. They use reflective radiant barrier roof decking, dual pane low-e windows, and specially designed thermostat to regulate optimum temperatures. They use CFL and LED lighting and low VOC paints. On top of this ”all landscape systems are professionally designed utilizing water conserving irrigation systems and native landscape elements”.
As can be seen in all the Western Rim Property designs, the commitment to the environment is inescapable. Marcus and Nancy Hiles interest lies in more than attracting Eco-conscious families- they too want to see what is best for the state they love. By having the power for landscape change like property developers do, they understand the importance of using this responsibility wisely and to the wider good.
