Learning about Sustainability in Charleston


February 17, 2016 8:49 pm

What a night to remember!  This past week, Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s sponsored an amazing event in downtown Charleston at the Harbor Club – and it was all class. The evening’s theme was education about LEED certified building and sustainability in South Carolina and featured the Indigo Park development in Kiawah as a stellar example on how to plan and execute a sustainable home for a sustainable and healthier life. Stuart Williams, a former United Nations speaker, spoke about sustainability; Hamilton Davis, who works for the Costal Conservation League, updated us on energy and policy both locally and nationally.  Hamilton addressed why one should care. Craig Gentilin, partner at Royal Indigo Construction, spoke of the advancements in green building products and how these materials are so important in sustainable building. The night was about living and developing with a conscience. As I drove home to Kiawah from downtown Charleston I smiled! Yes, a sustainable smile. We spoke to a packed house of over 125 – standing room only. I felt like part of a grassroots movement. This is not about Dyal Compass, not about Indigo Park, not about Sotheby’s – it is about how everyone is connected and how the way we each live our own life effects all of us. One person may go geothermal, another may install hurricane windows, someone else says no to grass and a few may sign a petition against excessive developing. Yes, that is called a grass roots movement, and I could not be prouder to have been a part of it.

We Don’t Need $3 billion to Do What’s Right

Finally, “Aiming Higher“, an article that recently appeared in the Sunday New York Times, begins to address making the world better. Dyal Compass builds with a conscience – always LEED. Less gas emissions, less fossil fuel by using geo thermal, more prepared for hurricanes by using Dade County hurricane certified windows, better insulation, etc. It helps the home owner and the island and the state and the country for years to come. Now that is how to live. The quote from Mr. Gelles’ article that appeared in the NY Times Sunday Nov 8th 2015 edition, “The Rockefeller Foundation, with an endowment of more than $3 billion is focusing on the theme of resilience in the hope that its grants will make cities and communities more sustainable.” resonated with Dyal Compass. We are not a $3 billion foundation, but we are a healthy company that can take a step for more sustainability in what we build. Dyal Compass is well aware that structural deficiencies cause damage if building are not done right. We need to build for the future. Indigo Park in Kiawah Island, SC helps save water, reduces utilities bills and dramatically reduces gas emissions. Just like everyone can buy an electric or hybrid car, Dyal Compass is making it possible to buy the equivalent in a home. How was Rome built, one day at a time? I can’t help think but that more and more foundations are looking at addressing not just the symptoms but also the source of the problem. Come to the Indigo Park Kiawah Island, SC Nov 14th 2015 tour of LEED community saving the environment one home at a time.

Low country South Carolina Oct 3-5, 2015

It was the rain and flooding storm SC Governor Nikki Haley called ‘the thousand year event’.   Areas like Charleston, Kiawah and Columbia were devastated – flooding and wind damage was everywhere. Calls came into Dyal Compass on Monday asking the affects of the storm in Indigo Park, our luxury LEED community overlooking the marsh in Kiawah Island. Our response? It was like watching a perfect science project working like a Swiss watch. The rain did not get trapped on top of our pervious driveways – the rain went right through them. The garden swells allowed the rain to pool within them and not flood the neighborhood. Building the homes beyond the stated code allowed the water to drain and pool properly and therefore the houses took on no water. The insulation, the hurricane windows and all of the other amazing features of these homes allowed the homeowners to relax and enjoy their dinner knowing they were safe inside their well-built homes. Yes, Dyal Compass was proud. It is the Dyal Compass vision and Royal Indigo Construction’s dedication that built this community of the future – a community built to last and protect – both the homeowner and the environment. At the end of the day, Nature is Boss, so let’s honor it and all build for the future. Invest in the future and buy either a 3, 4 or 5 Bedroom Indigo Park home.
