Green Building Movement

At Pringle Creek Community, we've been championing green building since the very beginning. In fact, we have the 1st LEED Platinum certified community center in the nation. What does LEED certified mean? Simply, it means taking steps to building which leaves a lighter footprint on the earth and saving you money in the long run. This can be by adding solar panels, using healthful materials, sourcing from local businesses, and much more. We are proud to be a part of the Green Building Movement. Won't you join us?

Energy efficiency now seems to be an every day household term. It's not surprising that there's now an LED light that also can be used to kill bacteria in your kitchen. At Pringle Creek Community, we're always looking for ways to innovate. Innovation is sometimes as simple as reexamining a light bulb to see what other functions it can offer.  So, next time Mister Whiskers is walking on your counter (of course, we believe you've trained it to not do that...), you can think about this light as not only a way to save energy, but also a healthier ...

Finesse

Are you dripping with finesse thanks to Bruno Mars and Cardi B? Do you all the sudden realize the 90's are coming back, and you don't know where to hide or are you ready for a My So Called Life reunion? It's cool, we understand your inner conflict about whether to wear that vertical striped hoodie or if you should start wearing a mood ring that tells your state of mind much better than that insta aura booth you can never seem to reserve in time. Let's back up a minute, to finesse. Our community sparkles with the savvy of ... Read more
