The ultimate goal of environmentally
responsible construction is health - the health of homeowners
and the local ecological community.
The Elements offer tightly-sealed homes with exceptional indoor
air quality. The extensive sealing of air ducts reduces drafts,
moisture, pollen, pests and noise. In addition to eliminating
the threat of mold and mildew, a tightly-sealed home dramatically
reduces airborne dust and other allergens, making home life more
comfortable for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, and
other respiratory ailments.
With 1,400 feet
of walking trails on the property and plenty of community gardens,
there’s every reason to get
outside, stretch your legs and enjoy nature. The community grilling
and picnic area features a wood pellet grill. Fueled by chemical-free
wood pellets, the grills produce less smoke, are more efficient,
and offer substantial reduction in benzopyrene, a carcinogenic
chemical deposited by gas and charcoal grills.
The connection of The Elements to the future Richland Greenway bike trail will
allow you to easily navigate the greater Greenville area by bicycle. Part of
the Greenville Trails and Greenways Master Plan, the extensive network of paths
is designed to offer residents a viable choice to walk or bike for local trips
and improve health and fitness. Destination points including Bob Jones University,
Timmons Park, downtown Greenville, Cleveland Park, Falls Park and Paris Mountain
will be easily accessed by foot or bike.
