Corridor Builder Brings Future of Energy Efficient Housing to Cedar Rapids


Zero Energy Ready Homes are cost-effective, high performance residences built to provide a healthy living environment with a level of energy efficiency, comfort, and durability unparalleled in today’s marketplace.

But if you only looked at the building exterior and the listing price, these homes wouldn’t seem any different from your average new home. The difference comes from the construction, insulation and integration of technology, which allows for cleaner air, more even temperatures, and a quieter home. Each certified home is so energy efficient that a small solar electric system can easily offset most, if not all, of the owner’s annual energy consumption.

Every Zero Energy Ready Home must meet the program’s specifications for advanced construction practices and technologies. Program certifications are issued by independent verifiers. Both halves of Allan Custom Homes’ new condominiums at 700 & 702 Dorchester Place NE, Cedar Rapids have been independently certified by Preferred Energy Consultants of Anamosa, IA.

"Energy efficient homes aren’t just good for the environment, they’re good for your wallet too," says Brundell. "Our new Dorchester condos will provide buyers an estimated $1,241 annually in energy savings over a minimum code compliant house, which in many cases could equal a monthly mortgage payment on this home."

The properties are located in northeast Cedar Rapids and one of the homes has already been sold. Interested buyers can also apply for a Green Mortgage, a mortgage program that helps buyers qualify for a larger mortgage in order to afford an energy efficient home.
