Disaster Resistant Green Eco-Intelligent Smart Homes
"We'll Still Be Standing When the Disaster is Over"
Green Hybrid Habitats is constructing premier high-performance, energy-efficient, customized homes that are hurricane and flood-proof and tornado and fire-resistant for the next generation of homeowners. All of our homes are engineered to withstand wind speeds up to 200 mph. Our motto is "We'll be standing when the disaster is over."
With society's continually growing desire for disaster-proof housing, along with the soaring cost and declining availability of land, labor, materials, and durable goods, many potential homebuyers are being priced out of the market. Our solution is to provide homes with enhanced safety and security innovations for today's homebuyers, regardless of their socioeconomic status.
Our Mission Statement
Who We Are
Green Hybrid Habitats is revolutionizing the residential building industry. We are a “fresh new face” from an old niche builder. Our company is combining over 45 years of building expertise, along with new cutting-edge, green building technology, thus creating customized homes specially designed to withstand the devastating effects of extreme weather-related conditions. Whether our company builds the client a traditional stick-built home, or we build one using our specialized Structural Steel Insulated Panels, Green Hybrid Habitats guarantees superb design and quality craftsmanship.
As a faith-based company vowing to “do the job right even when no one is looking,” and believing in the Cradle-to-Cradle Philosophy, a concept that promotes using construction materials and waste products that are recyclable or up-cycled to create a brand new product, Green Hybrid Habitats is dedicated to designing and building viable, sustainable and affordable Certified Green homes.
The Structural Steel Insulated Panel (SSIP) is the cornerstone of a Green Hybrid Habitat home. Typically, a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) is made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam insulation between two structural facings, such as an oriented strand board (OSB). However, one of the main disadvantages of using this type of panel is moisture resistance, making it susceptible to rot, mildew and mold. In addition, this style of panel is also prone to insect and rodent infestation. Therefore, after extensive research, our solution was to present a superior thermal high-performance product.
Green Hybrid Habitats is proud to be one of the first residential builders in the nation to incorporate a more advanced, insulated metal panel system. By utilizing a prefabricated metal panel, we are eliminating the use of drywall, a standard material used in traditional buildings which results in added time, expense, and waste from hanging, taping, mudding, sanding, priming and painting the product. The Insulated Metal Panel (IMP) is an exterior roof or interior wall panel comprised of two pieces of pre-coated steel skin with insulation foam in the center. Our energy-efficient composite metal panel is manufactured in a controlled environment by laminating steel over polystyrene, a high-quality rigid foam, resulting in a lightweight, more durable insulated panel. This weather-resistant, double-coated panel provides a strong thermal and moisture barrier in the most severe coastal environments, making it an excellent choice to create and maintain a high-performance building envelope.
Green Hybrid Habitats is constructing premier high-performance, energy-efficient, customized homes that are hurricane and flood-proof and tornado and fire-resistant. In 2021, it is estimated that nearly 15 million homes across the United States were ravaged by natural disasters. Coastal communities are vulnerable to a variety of these natural disasters which produce devastating winds, heavy rain, flash flooding, and storm surges, threatening both life and property. In response, Green Hybrid Habitats is installing such features as waterproof flooring and high-performance and impact windows as a standard feature in every one of our homes. Additionally, we are engineering all of the models to withstand wind speeds up to 200 miles per hour. Our motto is “We’ll still be standing when the disaster is over.”
Green Hybrid Habitats is integrating green innovations and designs to optimize the health and well-being of the client. As our society becomes increasingly more environmentally conscious, the green building market is anticipated to be among the fastest-growing industries worldwide over the next decade. Green building, or sustainable design, is an integrated process of creating and sustaining structures that are environmentally responsible. From installing an Energy Star Certified Heat Pump Water Heater (HPWH) and reclaimed wood countertops to a UV-C Whole Home Air Purification System, we are offering the homebuyer a variety of environmentally friendly durable good options and alternatives.
To obtain the highest standards of sustainable practices, Green Hybrid Habitats is equipping homes with eco-intelligent smart technology. Integrated smart technology or home automation is a system of connecting appliances and electronic devices with wireless connectivity. Home security, lighting, irrigation, air purification, and temperature control are among the most notable types of smart-connected devices. The Samsung SmartThings app is a home monitoring system that links smart technology with a mobile device, allowing the homeowner to easily control, monitor, and secure all smart-connected devices in the home from any location. Green Hybrid Habitat is hoping to achieve our goal of a sustainable building by easing construction waste, minimizing the impact of construction on the environment and human health, and creating a low energy, low maintenance, eco-smart, and healthy living environment for the next-gen residential home.
