NK wins Green Builder® Home of the Year Award

We are proud to share news that Stream Belmont, our Net Zero constructed multi-family project in Capitol Hill, as received the Green Builder® Home of the Year Award for Best Infill Project. Designed by Jill Burdeen and Lauren McCunney for Stream Real Estate LLC, Stream Belmont is on track to earn LEED-H Gold certification. The project’s sustainable features include a reverse cycle air-to-water chiller that is 75% more efficient than a traditional boiler, and achieved its net zero carbon footprint as a founding partner in Forterra’s C3 program. The Green Builder® Home of the Year Award recognizes the best in green building and design nationally, promoting whole home performance and integration with the natural environment.
