A Luxury Real Estate firm announces an upcoming event to promote Sustainable Practices in Real Estate, Business, and Public Policy. The event will take place February 11 at the Harbor Club on Prioleau Street from 5:30 to 7:30. Free and open to the public (RSVP required), the event will feature presentations from leading Sustainability spokespeople including Hamilton Davis, Energy Program Director for the Coastal Conservation League; Stuart Williams, Director at Be Earth Foundation- A United Nations IGO; and Craig Gentilin of Royal Indigo Construction, the builders of Indigo Park on Kiawah. Sponsored by Indigo Park, a premiere new community of LEED Certified homes on Kiawah Island, the event will focus on Green Building Practices and the idea of “Making a Profit while Making a Difference”.

Indigo Park is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified Community in a US Resort, and is made up of 16 homes ranging in size from 3-5 bedrooms. Homes offer marsh views and pools, and eco-friendly features such as geo-thermal heating and cooling, heat-reflective roofing, and lifetime guaranteed maintenance-free Nucedar siding. “As more consumers understand and appreciate the philosophy of environmentally sensitive building, communities will benefit from projects like Indigo Park where patience and commitment to sustainable, high quality design principles are paramount, says Candace Dyal, president of Dyal Compass LLC. “This is a trend that has spread across America and Europe. We are very excited to be gaining momentum for this movement in the communities of Kiawah and Charleston.”

The event will feature several speakers and a question and answer panel discussion, and will provide light refreshments and give aways. Stuart Williams, director of Be Earth Foundation, presents regularly to the UN, and is also the Social and Environmental Entrepreneur in Residence at the College of Charleston. Williams has a mission of “Making a Profit while Making a Difference” and works to impact policy and public consciousness as it relates to Sustainability.
