Award Winning Home Builder Still Learning New Ways to Excel

Even award-winning builders still have a lot to learn about creating high-performance homes.

Gettysburg, Penn.-based High Performance Homes has won a Housing Innovation Award for three consecutive years, but Keire DeGrandchamp, head of construction operations, returned to the Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA) annual conference to learn new tips and techniques to build the best home that he can.

This year's High Performance Home Summit in Atlanta drew builders, architects, raters, code officials and other professionals from across the country to share their experiences in a variety of summit and roundtable sessions.

The value for builders is in the gathering of like-minded pros that are seeking to build the best product they can for their buyers, and do it in a way that still makes sense from the business and market perspective.

For 2017, High Performance Homes won an award for Innovation in Custom Homes (For Buyer) for its "Danielle" model home in Gettysburg.
