Last month’s Colorado floods are leading to massive rebuilding efforts (destruction to 1,918 square miles of the state and $2 billion in property damage), this is the opportunity to redo things different. With the daunting and hugely expensive task of rebuilding, lets take this chance to design and rebuild homes/buildings BETTER and SMARTER than they were before.
When rebuilding there are so many factors to think about: updated energy codes, labor shortages, and energy efficiency concerns. What alternative building methods have you tired to design and build with outside of traditional stick building? Have you tried designing or building with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS)? You can design/build with this one advanced framing product while meeting all the updated energy codes and build fast. SIPS alone can help your designs comply with most of the newly adopted energy codes including the continuous insulation requirements as well as contribute up to 35 points for LEED certification.
Colorado has already started working to move its energy efficiency and Zero Net Energy (ZNE) housing marketing forward. The Colorado Energy Saving Mortgage program, which administers financing for people purchasing energy-effiecient homes or home improvements to increase energy efficiency, as signed into law on May 28th.
