Marcus Hiles – Founder of Western Rim Creates Eco-Friendly Residential Developments

has successfully applied his philosophy of sustainability and
environmental stewardship into action in over 15,000 upscale rental
townhomes and apartments throughout Texas. One cornerstone of his
eco-friendly building practices is installing appliances labeled by the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as ENERGY STAR. Since the program’s
launch in 1992, Americans’ ENERGY STAR usage has reduced carbon dioxide
emissions by 283.2
million metric tons
. With the average Texan paying $1,650
per year
in electrical bills and another $400 annually for natural
gas, energy efficient appliances mean utility savings of up to 50

employs window placement strategies that leverage a housing
development’s orientation and materials – and take into account
fluctuating Texas temperatures – to prevent heat gain in the summer and
promote heat retention in the winter. Through the installation of
windows with the proper solar coefficient, frames that prevent air
leakage, and shading devices, the loss of a home’s heated air and cooled
air is minimized. This results in fewer carbon emissions and greater
cost savings. In order to lessen the transfer of heat from the sun
through the roof and into air ducts, Hiles harnesses the power of
radiant roof panels to bounce summer heat away from the home, thus
lowering cooling costs by five
to ten percent
. He produces further value by installing air
conditioning systems that have a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER)
that exceeds government mandates.

A graduate of Pepperdine and Rice Universities, Marcus
has spent more than a decade creating properties that
exemplify his vision of luxury living. He is known for his ability to
select premiere tracts and build extraordinary developments that
incorporate private lakes, parklands, and vineyards. Hiles is also a
dedicated philanthropist who underwrites a variety of educational and
environmental initiatives.
