Veridian Homes LLC is the largest builder of residential homes in Dane County.

Environmental Activities

Veridian cares about their environment, neighbors and customers, and they continue to succeed in both environmental improvements and business advances. They build increasingly energy efficient homes and continually test new technology that benefits homeowners and the environment. They have improved methods of reducing sediment releases and maintain erosion minimization goals. The company continues to develop expertise to build homes at a high level through the Focus on Energy Program.

Veridian Homes includes specific environmental requirements in agreements with over 200 trade partners. Their partners indicate that they also routinely use these requirements as best practices when working for other companies.

In 2022, Veridian surpassed all previous year's improvements in the efficiency of the newly built homes. This improvement is verified by performance testing and REMRATE v16.3.3. High efficiency housing minimizes the environmental impact, not only for the current year, but over the life of the house. In 2022, Veridian accomplished a REMRATE estimated total energy savings of over 2.34 million kWh and over 68 thousand Therms annually. When compared to 2021, over an additional million kWh of energy savings was achieved in 2022 even with fewer homes submitted for certification. This significant increase in Veridian's overall energy savings in 2022 was partly due to the switch from conventional natural gas water heaters to the installation of hybrid (air source heat pump) water heaters in 100% of Veridian Homes.
