We can proudly say that with Alvarez New Concepts, an entire division of our company is devoted to sustainable design and green technology. Some smart features we offer with our homes are rain harvesting systems, LED lighting, high-impact resistant insulated windows, and materials derived from recycled and renewable resources.
