Green Building Lord Builders
"I had great pleasure in meeting Robert Lord and getting to know his vision and his passion for buildings. After I talked to him at length and visited some of his job sites in the Chicago area, I immediately realized that Robert Lord is a forward thinking, a truly innovative builder, a pioneer and visionary who is well ahead of his time. Not only Robert Lord in as early adopter of revolutionary and state-of-the-art building techniques, but he is extremely committed to energy-efficiency and sustainable construction.
Robert Lord was already ahead of the game as he had embraced step-change technologies such as geothermal and closed-cell foam insulation, but Robert Lord has now leaped into the future of construction by being the first builder in Illinois to use a completely reflective low-e building envelope that manages radiant heat in roof and walls and makes the building much more energy efficient, dramatically reducing the energy cost and the greenhouse gas emissions of the home, helping to reduce global warming and protecting the environment."

"These are just a few terms that come to mind when I think of Lord General Contractors. You did an outstanding job of truly customizing our dream home to reflect our family. You were always available to meet with us or the many experienced subcontractors, to ensure things were done right the first time.
As experienced home owners, this was our tenth and hopefully final move, we knew what we were looking for in a community, a builder and in a home. We wanted to work with someone we could trust and who shared our vision to create a one-of-a-kind dream home. You did this and much, much more.
Upon our arrival from California, we looked at hundreds of homes all over the western suburbs until we finally discovered Fox Mill. We then looked at every available home and every builder’s model. The quality and pride you put into each and every home is quite evident. Your attention to detail and willingness to do whatever is necessary to get the job done were key success factors.
Together we started with a blank sheet and designed every inch of our home with painstaking detail. We thought we knew what we wanted, but by working together with you and Mike, many design improvements were made.
We were most impressed by the way you handled the inevitable issues that arose during construction of a one-of-a-kind home. During the construction process, you continually kept us in the loop so we knew what to expect and when.
The subcontractors were first rate and took great pride in their work. Their attention to detail during the building process has resulted in a very short ‘punch list’ as
As a truly custom builder, you demonstrated a perfect balance of sticking with the plan and flexibility to change things on the fly. You always let us know the cost up front for any changes we requested so we could make an informed decision.
After building a home, many people say they would never do it again. Given the opportunity, we would build again with Lord General Contractors in a heartbeat.

List of things a builder or contractor needs to build a green leed home?
On your quest to get a list of items needed to build a LEED certified home, be careful of LEED certified products. There is no such thing. All products have to be submitted as part of the LEED building process. That being said, many online product manufacturers have material about their products that have been submitted for LEED projects with good results.
I don't know of a company that supplies a list of all these products, but there are some companies like Green Building Supply that carry a great deal of items for people building LEED certified homes. There are also websites with g…
