Bend-based developer is the only Central Oregon winner

 Brooks Resources Corporation was honored to receive the Earth Advantage Hall of Fame Award this week. The awards honor developers who built the most Earth Advantage silver, gold and platinum certified homes, as well as prizes for innovative design, community engagement and Zero Energy homes, which generate at least as much energy as they consume. Of 17 award recipients, Brooks Resources is the only firm based in Central Oregon.

Matt Douglas, Manager of Central Oregon Residential for Earth Advantage, said, “Brooks Resources was awarded the Hall of Fame for its continued support of Earth Advantage certification programs over the last 20 years! From NorthWest Crossing to IronHorse to Discovery West, Brooks Resources’ commitment to building sustainable, energy-efficient neighborhoods makes the firm a standout in its industry.”
