Through a partnership with CertainTeed Gypsum, national home builder Lennar is featuring AirRenew Essential IAQ Gypsum Board in its three home collections at Pavilion Park, an expansive, new neighborhood in Irvine, Calif. Already committed to using low- and no-VOC materials and finishes in its homes, Lennar saw this as a way to offer improved indoor air quality in their homes at Pavilion Park.

“As one of the leading home builders in the nation, we are always on the lookout for new products that will help us provide our homeowners with more sustainable, comfortable living spaces,” says David J. Kaiserman, president of Lennar Ventures. “When CertainTeed presented AirRenew Essential IAQ Gypsum Board to us, we knew we’d found one of those products. And, with California’s high level of awareness of formaldehyde and its negative effects, we believed Pavilion Park would be an excellent test market for the product.”

One of eight home builders to be included in the 726-home Pavilion Park, Lennar has three home collections featured—Roundtree, Rosemist and Beachwood. Pavilion Park is the first in a series of developments known as the Great Park Neighborhoods, currently being constructed on the former site of El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Irvine. 

“The installation of AirRenew Essential on this project, along with the home builder’s indoor air quality-enhancing design, provides an effective strategy for reducing formaldehyde levels in a home,” said Angie Day, marketing manager-residential segment for CertainTeed Gypsum.
