Clean Air

Troon Pacific homes improve indoor air quality. With the help of products like Zehnder Home Ventilation Systems, our buildings maintain a continuous supply of filtered outdoor air, pushing stale air outdoors and preventing toxins from accumulating — all while expending very little energy.

Outdoor air pollution is a well-known fact of life. But air indoors can be harmful, too. Contaminants can spread into the home from outside or can originate within the home itself.

The most common source of indoor air contamination are volatile organic compounds or VOCs. These chemicals evaporate easily and can cause respiratory irritation, dry eyes, dizziness, and nausea.

While most of these health effects are minor, some VOCs, like those most common in paints, sealants, adhesives, and other wet-applied materials, can cause more long-lasting ills.

One of the best ways to ensure good indoor air quality is to keep toxic elements from entering the home in the first place. Wherever possible, Troon Pacific builds with no- and low-VOC products.

By selecting the right materials and implementing new ventilation technology, our homeowners can breathe easily and stay healthy.

Clean Water

Tensui Water Systems
We provide homeowners with the healthiest water possible. Using an entirely natural filtration method of fine rocks and minerals, we eliminate many of the common contaminants found in household water sources.

Contaminants are rampant in the world around us. If our drinking water is not clean, we can experience adverse health effects — both mild and severe, short-term and long-term. Common impurities result from heavy metals used in industry, agricultural byproducts such as pesticides and fertilizers, and bacteria.

The WELL Building Standard has also pointed out that some municipalities treat water with chlorine or chloramine to reduce waterborne pathogens.

These chemicals can go on to form compounds which lead to cancer and other illnesses. On the other hand, some of the purest spring water contains minerals beneficial to our health. The Tensui Water Perfection System is one of the few products that takes this duality into account, removing chemical contaminants while enriching water with beneficial elements.
Several of our most recent projects include Tensui systems, ensuring that homeowners are drinking, cooking with, and bathing in water that’s optimized for the needs of their bodies.

Chemical Free Living

Insulation materials treated with harmful, chemically treated flame retardants surround us. But they often go unnoticed.

Troon Pacific is committed to using natural insulation materials — like cellulose, mineral wool, silica, cork, and agrifiber — wherever possible to mitigate the adverse effects of chemicals in the home.

The Green Science Policy Institute has assembled a chart listing flame retardant-free building insulation. Guides like this one help us to use only the healthiest materials in our homes.

Chemical flame retardants are present in insulation materials and wallcoverings, as well as some furniture and textiles. Halogenated flame retardants are listed as one of the Green Science Policy Institute’s six classes of chemicals of concern and are on the Living Future Institute’s Red List. We use this list as a guide in avoiding harmful chemicals in our homes.

Troon Pacific uses natural products in order to keep synthetic and other chemical insulators out of our homes, giving families a better shot at breathing clean air.

Healthy Materials

A healthy home begins with healthy materials. Troon Pacific has taken a leading role in using building materials free of harmful components to keep our homeowners breathing easy.

As part of our wellness-centered mission, we make it a priority to find sustainable, health-oriented alternatives to materials other builders don’t think twice about. We’ve looked to the transparency and labeling system Declare, a project of the International Living Future Institute, which aims to create nutrition-like “ingredients” labels on consumer goods, ensuring individuals that they’re surrounding themselves with materials they can feel good about.

Troon Pacific has partnered with Moore & Giles to create the world’s first Declare-labeled, Red List-free, and Cradle to Cradle–certified leather. This new product swaps a typically highly toxic treating process for a wholly organic and biodegradable one that uses only olive leaves and beeswax.

 

We also use USG EcoSmart Panels instead of standard drywall. This interior cladding is made up of up to 95% post-consumer recycled content, and uses 40% less water and 25% less material than its conventional counterparts. Red List–compliant, it enhances indoor air quality while minimizing environmental impact.

Wet-applied materials often contain harmful VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, contributing to adverse health effects. Wherever possible, Troon Pacific works with manufacturers who have already received Declare labels, like ECOS and Benjamin Moore, whose stains, varnishes, and paints include organic, zero-VOC options.

Partnering with organizations and manufacturers that lead the way in the realm of material transparency, Troon Pacific is proud to design and build homes that guarantee a quality indoor environment for their occupants.
