EnergyValue Housing Awards Honor PATH Partners
Mainstream GreenHome, Stitt Energy Systems, and John Wesley Miller Companies recognized
The NAHB Research Center presented the
EnergyValue Housing Awards (EVHA) to builders who successfully demonstrate innovative approaches to energy-efficient construction and voluntarily integrate energy efficiency into the design, construction, and marketing of their new homes.
Presented Feb. 13 during the International Builders' Show, the 2008 EnergyValue Housing Award winners included three PATH Partners:
- Cherokee Investment Partners, LLC in Raleigh, N.C. won the EnergyValue Housing Gold Award in the Custom Home, Moderate Climate category for its PATH-sponsored National Homebuilders'
Mainstream Green Home project, an environmentally friendly demonstration home that is designed to look and feel like a traditional home while using less energy, conserving more water, and providing a healthier living environment.
- Stitt Energy Systems, Inc., of Rogers, Ark., was awarded the 2008 EnergyValue Housing Gold Award for the Custom Home, Moderate Climate category and the EVHA People's Choice Award.
- John Wesley Miller Companies of Tucson, Ariz., was honored with 2008 EnergyValue Housing Silver Award for the Custom Home, Hot Climate category.
"EVHA winners are pioneers in their fields and the level of innovation and home design this year is outstanding. Clearly, the home building industry's efforts to expand energy efficiency and green building have taken hold and will continue to make a positive difference for future generations," Michael Luzier, president of the NAHB Research Center, said in a statement.
In its 13th year, the EVHA program recognizes energy-efficient building practices in an effort to educate the housing industry and the public about emerging and advanced technologies.
