R&O Construction project achieves LEED Platinum Certification

Press Release

May 17, 2013

Ogden — The Moose Village Housing project, built by Ogden-based R&O Construction, has achieved LEED platinum certification. Located in the Grand Teton National Park in Moose, Wyoming, the project consists of seven four-plex housing units. Some of the sustainable features of the housing units include:

  • Recycled wood finishes.
  • Forestry Stewardship Council-certified lumber for framing and floor finishes.
  • Homes incorporating modular construction, which has nearly zero waste.
  • Water-efficient fixtures and systems.
  • Superinsulated walls and roofs for more efficient heating.
  • Native landscaping and reduced irrigation demands.
  • Energy recovery ventilation systems.

The project was funded after a 1998 housing needs assessment showed that the National Park Service needed more affordable housing units to recruit and maintain staff. R&O Construction has constructed several LEED certified projects, and this is the company’s second platinum project.
