||Field Evaluation: 1999 Model ReModel Project|
This evaluation focused on the use of several PATH technologies in a remodeling project. The project is the 1999 Model ReModel project located in Philadelphia, which was finished for the 1999 NAHB Remodelors’ Show. The project was sponsored by Professional Remodeler magazine, which tracked the progress of the construction on its web page.
Built in the 1830's, the home is a brick masonry row house on a stone foundation. It had been vacant for nearly thirty years prior to the renovation. The interior of the structure was in such poor condition that most of it had to be gutted and rebuilt. The house required all new interior walls, windows, floor finishes, fixtures, and mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems.
This evaluation measured the cost of materials and labor for each PATH technology that was installed. Technologies included plastic plumbing manifold, low-VOC paints, flexible gas piping, kitchen recycling center, latex foam sealant and pre-finished drywall corners.
It also gauged reactions from the remodeler, the trade contractors, other industry professionals, and consumers regarding each technology’s use through interviews, survey data, open houses, and tours during the Remodelors' Show.
