Enercept Homes Featured in NAHB Green Build Conference
Two homes built with Enercept Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) were featured at the 2007 National Association of Home Builders’ National Green Build Conference in St. Louis, MO.
The Green Build Tour of Homes included the 2007 Vision House™ built by Belcher Homes, Wildwood, MO in conjunction with Ecos Materials of St. Louis featuring Enercept SIPS. The projects set a new standard for custom homes. With an R-40 Enercept insulated roof panel and R-22 Enercept insulated wall panel, the homes will be environmentally friendly and inexpensive to heat and cool.
Matt Belcher, former President of the St. Louis Home Builders Association and owner of Belcher Homes states, “There are more than 32,000 houses nationwide officially designated as being green, and many more that incorporate some form of green build techniques. The average new house is 100% more energy efficient than one built just 30 years ago.” Building with Enercept Structural Insulated Panels is one of those green building techniques.
Every year NAHB hosts the National Green Build Conference to provide the latest information about the green building market.
