Manufacturers forge partnerships to promote high-performance building
While those attending last month’s Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA) High Performance Home Summit shared ideas and learned how to build better single- and multifamily homes, a host of manufacturers were there, too.
But their role in their eyes wasn’t necessarily to showcase products and new wares, but more to establish partnerships with builders and designers to determine the best ways in which their energy efficient solutions can elevate a structure’s performance.
Lennox has long been the summit’s national HVAC sponsor. Scott Curtis, the company’s manager of new residential construction, saw Lennox’s presence as a means for supporting EEBA’s agenda and for helping the home industry progress toward overall high-performance adoption.
“It’s important as a company, it’s part of our position, to be out here,” Curtis said. “When you get people in here talking about policy and codes, it’s important also to provide a manufacturer’s point of view – what works, what doesn’t or, ‘Hey, that’s a great idea but we need to modify it a little bit.’ ”
