A Better World Starts With a Green Home

The Reybold Group has long been committed to utilizing green building practices, building energy efficient homes and reducing the carbon footprint of our new communities.

Practices & Standards

Experienced crews follow strict construction guidelines which far exceed the standards of New Castle County. In addition, environmentally sensitive areas are preserved with wildlife habitats maintained or enhanced. Regardless of location, minimized earth disturbance and erosion are integral elements of our overall construction plans, and activities are scheduled to permit limited soil exposure. We use a well-informed team approach where green building goals and expectations are communicated to everyone involved.
