We are pleased to announce that Addison Homes has received a 2015 Housing Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Energy. A new home builder in Greenville and Upstate SC, we are being recognized among the most progressive companies in the country for innovation on the path to Zero Energy Ready Homes.
Addison Homes’ award-winning project – located in the Cobblestone community – is a balance of form and function, blending elegant aesthetics with all the smarts of high-performance building science. Certified to the industry’s most recognized national standards – Energy Star, Indoor airPlus, WaterSense, National Green Building Standard and DOE Zero Energy Ready Home – this home provides its residents a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment along with lower utility bills and fewer maintenance expenses.
“The U.S. Department of Energy knows there is one chance during home construction to lock in critical performance measures that can take the homeowner experience to a new level of efficiency, comfort, health and durability,” said DOE’s Sam Rashkin, Chief Architect, Building Technologies Office. “But it will take housing industry leadership to provide this opportunity to American homebuyers. That’s why DOE proudly recognizes Addison Homes as one of our nation’s select 2015 Housing Innovation Award-winning builders paving a path to this home of the future, today.”
Several Housing Innovation Award winners were selected in each of four categories: custom, production, multifamily and affordable homes. Awards will be presented Tuesday, Oct. 6, during the EEBA Excellence in Building Conference & Expo in Denver CO. A grand winner in each group will be announced during the award ceremony.
“This is such an honor,” said Todd Usher, president of Addison Homes, “but the real winners are the homeowners, who live in a beautiful house that delivers superior indoor air quality, enhanced comfort, increased durability and greatly reduced energy costs. So while their expenses are lower, their quality of life is much, much higher. That’s why Addison Homes is committed to the Zero Energy Ready Home program.”
