PATH - A Public Private Partnership for Advancing Housing Technology

Design Professionals

"Through our research and through our engineering...

...we have found that there are ways -- affordable and available ways -- to build a home that can better resist natural disasters, whether it be a wildfire or a hurricane."
-- Kevin Barger, Spokesman, Institute for Business and Home Safety

Engineers, architects, building code officials, preservationists, educators and trainers can all advocate the use of state-of-the-art design and construction techniques. For example, an architect's choice to install HVAC ducts within conditioned space, or an educator's shared knowledge of the whole house system takes the homebuilding industry one step closer to the acceptance of new building technologies.
