Marcus Hiles Buidling For Green Friendly Living

In all of the complexes built and managed by Marcus Hiles throughout the Texas, residents enjoy resort-style living with modern conveniences. Rich wood and Italian marble flooring complement the cooling radiant barrier roofing in the attics, while Western Rim’s Estates, Towers and Mansions brand properties feature lavish interiors and green construction. Extra-tall, dual pane windows work to complement their functionality: a layer of argon gas with a solar heat gain coefficient minimum of 0.22 reduces heat loss in colder months by as much as 75 percent and minimizes cooling requirements during summer. Utility bills are also controlled by highly efficient weather stripping; tight seals monitor the temperatures set by programmable thermostats and HVAC systems that use substantially less energy than normal thermal comfort units. Units are also treated with cellulose sound insulation, giving Texans protection from outside noise, minimizing volumes between walls and floors by 80 percent. Water-conserving irrigation systems provide for opulent baths outfitted with jetted tubs and rainwater showerheads, while in refined gourmet chef-quality kitchens, ENERGY STAR stainless steel Whirlpool® brand appliances provide stylish and sustainable choices.
