Boston magazine’s 2014 Design Home Goes Green

Boston magazine teams up with countless manufacturers each year to create a home that showcases the latest products and cutting-edge technologies available in home design. This year, we’re proud to announce that we’re a part of the publication’s 10th Design Home, and its first ever single-family net zero energy home.

Each home has a distinctive style and is built in a new location, stretching from north of Boston to the South Shore and even to MetroWest. This year’s home, located in Salisbury, Massachusetts, will provide homeowners with an inside look at smart design and first-hand experience with state-of-the-art products that help achieve its net zero energy goals.

The 2,400-square-foot home will include our energy-efficient ductless zoning system, complete with two outdoor units and five wall-mounted indoor units. The indoor units will be placed in each of the home’s three bedrooms, as well as the dining room and attic for optimal home comfort.

The project will be completed later this month, and will begin four weeks of public tours in mid-September. One hundred percent of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Boston Children’s Hospital.

We’re thrilled to be involved in such an important project that demonstrates that a green, efficient home can be both comfortable and beautiful. Click here for more information on the 2014 Design Home, and here to read a detailed article in Wicked Local Amesbury.

You Know About Energy-efficient Products But Do You Use Them?

Energy-efficient products are constantly being introduced to the U.S. market, yet buildings continue to account for nearly half of the nation’s energy consumption and building owners spend a whopping $40 billion annually on energy. So, we ask ourselves: are building engineers and contractors actually taking advantage of energy-efficient products? McGraw Hill Construction (MHC) and Siemens Building Technologies set out to find out. They surveyed engineers and contractors to gauge the level of awareness and use of innovative building technologies among industry professionals today.

The survey focused on 10 of the industry’s most successful energy efficiency technologies. MHC’s Harvey M. Bernstein and Donna Laquidara-Carr let Engineering News-Record‘s Contractor Business Quarterly readers in on their findings. Here’s some of what they shared:

The results show that the majority of the industry recognizes energy efficiency technologies but haven’t used them. Those that have see the benefits in what they provide and how they can achieve desired energy efficiency goals.
