ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — DELTEC Houses WINS
U.S. Department OF Electrical power 2021 HOUSING INNOVATION AWARD

Asheville, North Carolina, August 3, 2021 — Deltec Houses is honored to be the receiver of a U.S. Office of Energy’s (DOE) Housing Innovation Award recognizing the impressive organization and creating practices amid households built to the prestigious Zero Power Ready Dwelling Conventional. The DOE Housing Innovation Award winners are selected for each of 5 groups: personalized consumer, custom made spec, production, multifamily, and inexpensive properties.

The submission for the Personalized Ridgeline F project from panelized prefab builder Deltec Properties and the area builder, Previous Faculty Rebuilder & Co., was selected for the 2021 Housing Innovation Award winner in the Custom made for Purchaser (<2500 square feet), category. This prestigious national award is an important achievement, representing the most impressive and innovative homes among leading DOE Zero Energy Ready Home builders. Leadership from Deltec is helping transform the U.S. housing market to provide better homes. This Housing Innovation Award helps the DOE celebrate Deltec’s success in providing the best in energy efficiency, indoor air quality, comfort, and construction quality.

This home is in the Wilmington NC area and built in 2020. Beyond the DOE award, which Deltec is now receiving for the second time, this home has also been certified as a Wildlife Habitat by the World Wildlife Fund. This furthers Deltec’s track record for sustainable building, building off our first home to win the DOE’s Housing Innovation Award in 2019 for a home in Mills River, NC.

According to Leigha Dickens, Sustainability Manager for Deltec Homes, “We are greatly honored to earn this recognition from the DOE for our stewardship of sustainable building. This award recognizes not only our homes but also our leadership in sustainability. Environmental responsibility is fundamental to our history and reputation For decades, we have been committed to making our homes even more energy efficient and better for the environment.”

The 2021 Housing Innovation Awards ceremony will be held virtually and in conjunction with the EEBA High Performance Home Summit, September 14th-16th in Denver, CO. One Grand Award Winner will be announced from among the winners in each of the specified categories at the Housing Innovation Awards ceremony.

Deltec looks forward to further consideration as the DOE now moves on to the next and final step of the awards process. All winning applications are currently under review by the esteemed panel of judges to determine this year’s Grand Award Winners. Deltec will be present as the winners are announced during the Housing Innovation Awards Ceremony scheduled at the Energy and Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA) High Performance Home Summit 2021 in September 2021.
