Working with Preferred Building Systems of New Hampshire (http://www.preferredbuildings.com), and Tamara Marteney AIA of Alpine Architects (http://alpinearchitects.com), we are building a new energy efficient home for our clients at Mad River Glen.
This home is a hybrid with the use of stick-built, panelized and modular construction.
– High performance in insulation, heating and cooling, and air quality. Exceed “Energy Star” ratings.
– Economy and efficiency in building construction
– Panels and modular sections built in controlled environment
– Specifically designed and engineered materials and fasteners
– All floors, ceilings, wiring, plumbing, windows and doors assembled under optimum conditions.
– Sustainable building practices
