On February 7, 2007 a group of 11 home builders will be honored for their contributions to improving the energy and environmental performance of their homes with the EnergyValue Housing Award (EVHA) presented at the 2007 International BuildersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Show in Orlando, Florida. Each year, the EVHA program recognizes a new group of visionary builders who have voluntarily integrated energy efficiency into the design, construction, and marketing of their homes and demonstrated successful approaches to energy-efficient construction.
The EnergyValue Housing Award (EVHA) is the nation’s preeminent energy efficiency award honoring builders who voluntarily incorporate energy efficiency into all aspects of new home construction. Builders submit detailed applications in any of five categories (Affordable, Custom/Demonstration, Factory-Built, Multifamily, Production) in one of three climate regions (Cold, Moderate, Hot). A panel of industry experts evaluates the applications and selects winners based on Energy Value, Design, Construction, Marketing and Customer Relations, and Energy Programs. And for the second year in a row, the public can choose its favorite EVHA finalist on the PeopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Choice Awards web site. Get to know the 2007 EVHA finalists and vote for the PeopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Choice Award at www.nahbrc.org/evha/voting.asp.
