CHP Finalist in 2010 EnergyValue Housing Awards Competition

The NAHB Research Center has announced that 20 builders from 15 states have been selected to receive the 2010 EnergyValue Housing Award (EVHA), the nation’s preeminent energy efficiency award honoring builders who voluntarily incorporate energy efficiency into all aspects of new home construction.

Now in its 15th year, the EVHA is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Building America program, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), in addition to the NAHB Research Center. The EVHA challenges builders to elevate standards for energy-efficient construction, provides educational opportunities for home builders, and fosters the adoption of energy efficiency principles.

Finalists were selected from builders’ projects in three climate regions (cold, moderate, hot) and five categories (affordable, custom/demonstration, factory-built, multi-family, production). The awards will be presented at a ceremony to be held during the International Builders’ Show on January 18, 2010, at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel. While finalists have already been notified of their status, their placement (Gold, Silver, Builder of the Year, People’s Choice) will be announced at the awards celebration.
