Family-owned Veridian Homes wants to paint the town green. As an environmental steward, Veridian Homes builds communities with homes that are both Energy Star- and Green Built Home-certified. Those homes must meet strict standards set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Veridian offers more than 40 floor plans (with such distinguished names as The Bentley, The Carter, The Everest, and The Oxford) for single-family detached homes as well as condominiums in about 20 neighborhoods in Dane County and Madison, Wisconsin. The company also supports buyers in home plan selection, interior design modifications, and financing.
