For six years running, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 Tierra Concrete Homes, Inc. of Pueblo, Colorado, has received an Energy Value Housing Award from the National Association of Home Builders. The awards recognize builders who integrate energy efficiency into all aspects of home building. Entries are judged by an expert panel on the basis of nine criteria: practicality, land use and site planning, design, innovation, resource efficient building, construction, marketing, customer relations, and energy performance of the completed house construction.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) analyzed this home. Its test showed the home to be 75% more efficient than a home built to the Model Energy Code. The test is documented in NREL's "Renewable Energy Technologies in Disaster" publication.
