Happy New Year! Thanks to all of our wonderful customers who made 2013 an exciting year for InSoFast. Since it is officially now 2014 we’d also like to you in the loop with an ongoing project that we’ll be participating in throughout the upcoming year, EEBA’s Houses That Work Program. We can assure builders, architects and contractors that this is an educational event not to be missed. Here’s the inside scoop:
Several months ago InSoFast was accepted as a National Education Partner for the Energy & Environmental Building Alliance’s (EEBA) Houses that Work Program for 2014. EEBA’s mission is to create ‘a world where everyone can live in a healthy, safe, durable, energy efficient home’.
With the Houses That Work Program, EEBA has organized a collection of classroom style workshops instructed by world class building science trainers. The best of the best will be teaching building science principles to help contractors, architects, and others involved in the industry to construct and/or remodel high performance, energy efficient, safe and durable homes for their customers. The workshops also focus on training attendees to identify the most cost effective ways to meet energy codes.
How is InSoFast involved in the program? As a Houses That Work Partner, InSoFast will play an integral role in the national tour. Our products will be represented in workshops that teach the importance of energy efficient building practices. This is a great chance to view live demonstrations of our panels being installed in conjunction with the teaching of relevant building practices. We highly suggest this educational platform as a way for builders, architects and contractors to further develop their knowledge of energy efficient home building. We’re ecstatic to be involved with this empowering program throughout the next year and hope to meet you at your cities upcoming event!
The first two Houses That Work sessions will take place on January 23 in St. Louis, Missouri and January 24th in Dallas, Texas. Stay tuned on EEBA’s website and on our Facebook page for more session dates and Houses that Work news!
As a closing note for 2013, we’d like to point out a statement made this year by the co-director of the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC). Ralph Cavanagh expressed in a NY Times piece that “For 40 years now, energy efficiency has been America’s most productive energy resource…it is far better to give priority to efficiency improvements that cost less than the energy they displace” Let’s push for even more energy efficient practices in 2014!
