Sam Rashkin, Chief Architect of the Building Technologies Office at the US Dept of Energy informed John: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been providing recognition to leading Zero Energy Ready Home builders for several years at an event called the Housing Innovation Awards. Starting last year, we realized it was time to also recognize the vital role played by builders who have left a lasting legacy, and in fact, transformed our vision as well as the way we build and sell high performance homes. These builders took the challenge to demonstrate high-performance was the future when it was much less obvious to the rest of the industry.
And this year, the much deserved recognition goes to you. It is with great pleasure that I inform you that you will be honored with the 2015 Lasting Legacy Award at DOE’s Housing Innovation Awards. This year the event occurs on October 6th during the Energy and Environmental Building Alliance’s Excellence in Building Conference in Denver, Colorado.
Congratulations to John! We are so pleased to have your efforts recognized!
