Building Green with EPS SIPs
Building with EPS SIPs benefits the environment and your wallet. SIPs naturally lower overall household energy consumption and emissions. Combine your new energy-efficient buildings with energy-efficient products to lessen your carbon footprint.
Location and Orientation
The location and orientation of your new home are important! Maximize on natural sunlight for heat and light and shade for cooling.
Energy-Efficient Designs and Materials
Designing your home with SIPs means there will be less air infiltration making the indoor climate much easier to control. Also, consider using energy-efficient lights and appliances.
Many of our staff and builders hold the designation of Certified Green Building Professionals. The designation was awarded after the completion of a three-day training program.
National Green Building Certification assures homeowners that your project meets the requirements of either the NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines or the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard and are truly green.
Certified Green Building Professionals are able to measure a home building project against the best existing definition of green and sustainable home construction and incorporate green building principles into the homes they build.
The Certified Green Professional is administered by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) University of Housing. According to the standards developed through the NAHB, the design, construction, and operation of a green home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource-efficient building design and materials, and indoor environmental quality, and must take the overall impact on the environment into account.
