SCC’s Saint Polycarp Village Phase III Awarded LEED Platinum Honor

Saint Polycarp Village Phase 3 has been officially awarded LEED for Homes certification at the Platinum level, the highest possible certification level!

LEED for Homes is a green building certification program created to address materials and systems commonly found in the residential design and construction industry. The certification indicates that the building is constructed with a strong focus on energy and water efficiency, material durability, healthy indoor air quality, and reduced impact on natural resources. Certified buildings are better for occupant health and offer added benefits to the surrounding communities and environment. 

This award is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the design and construction team of this project, which include Davis Square Architects, NorianSiani Engineering, New Ecology, Dellbrook Construction, and Munkenbeck Consulting. The Enterprise Foundation and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, provided financial support for these Green endeavors as well.

Efforts to create positive environmental impacts at the Saint Polycarp Village are not yet done. SCC is working with Boston Community Capital to install solar photovoltaic arrays on the rooftop of the Phase 2 & 3 buildings through a Power Purchase Agreement. The energy produced by this system will cover all common area costs of these buildings and produce an excess credit which will be applied to another of SCC’s properties. Installation of these systems is scheduled to begin this fall.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
