ICCF & ENERGY EFFICIENCY
God has called us to care for his people and his creation.
ICCF builds homes that inspire resident confidence and pride while also being environmentally friendly. All new multi-family developments seek Silver Level LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint. Recent examples of our LEED Certified developments include 435 LaGrave (Gold level), Steepleview Apartments (previously 501 Eastern – seeking Gold level), and Stockbridge (seeking Gold level). All of these developments used the following tactics to make sure they were both constructed sustainably and remain sustainable for residents:
- Low flow toilets and lavatory faucets, ENERGY STAR appliances, and high efficiency HVAC system to save on resources and utility bills
- Energy-recovery ventilator (ERV) to keep fresh air in the building while reducing utility costs
- Better furnace filters to improve residents’ health
- Low VOC paint to improve residents’ health
- Drought-tolerant grasses and plants
- Construction waste process that diverted recyclable materials from the landfill.
ICCF & BEAUTY
Since ICCF’s inception, beauty has been an important factor in the housing work we do. Beauty serves to enrich our lives and to help instill pride and dignity. All of ICCF’s homes and housing developments are designed to be beautiful and to blend harmoniously with surrounding structures. This is why ICCF continues to build a variety of housing types; from mixed use, multi-story apartment buildings that become the home of many to duplexes scattered between single family homes. Offering a variety of housing choices allows ICCF to meet the needs of our neighbors while respecting the traditions and looks of Grand Rapids’ unique neighborhoods.
Below are some examples of ICCF rental housing and the variety of formats our housing has taken:
