HOME AWARDS/CERTIFICATIONS

SPECIAL INFORMATION

Building Performance Construction has a tremendous amount of home performance information on its website. It makes a very convincing argument as to why home buyers should insist their home be built above code by using modern techniques and technologies. As a builder committed to building only Energy Star Homes, Building Performance Construction documents their homes' energy efficiency through the Home Energy Rating System (HERS). On paper, a house that meets building code will have a HERS rating of 80. An Energy Star house will have a HERS rating of 86, with each point equal to a 5% jump in efficiency. BPCS guarantees that every home it builds will score 90 or better.

The rear faces south and is designed for passive solar heating and daylighting

The high use kitchen and breakfast area are well lit all year long
