BEAM Featured in VISION House LA

LOS ANGELES -- A construction site in fashionable Pacific Palisades will become much more than an example of southern California luxury living. The home also will serve as an education and demonstration site for sustainable building and healthy living.

The VISION House Los Angeles incorporates California’s new mandatory green building standards, CalGreen, that emphasize performance, durability, energy efficiency, water conservation, indoor air quality, efficient systems, and sustainable materials. The project is a joint effort of Green Builder Media and Structure Home, a Los Angeles-based builder. The project team will host a wide variety of educational, promotional, and community-focused events during and after completion.

The BEAM Serenity QS Central Vacuum System chosen for the project delivers up to five times the deep cleaning power of a conventional vacuum. It removes 100 percent of contacted dirt and allergens from the living area without stirring up dust inside the home. The system has been clinically proven to relieve allergies. The BEAM system also qualifies for green building certification points in both the National Association of Homebuilders and LEED green building standards.
