Addison Homes Wins Pinnacle Award for Best Achievement in Energy Efficiency

Greenville SC builder Addison Homes was amongst the home building industry’s best and brightest honored with 2016 Pinnacle Awards during the 13th annual Celebration of Excellence. Presented by the Home Builders Association of South Carolina, Pinnacle Awards recognize the state’s builders and remodelers who have achieved the highest standard of quality craftsmanship, innovative problem-solving and customer satisfaction. HBASC handed out 17 awards in five categories – New Home Construction, Remodel Projects, Energy Efficiency, Subdivision/Community and Sales & Marketing. Addison Homes was awarded the Pinnacle Award for Best Achievement in Energy Efficiency.

 “We are committed to pushing the envelope when it comes to high-performance building,” says Addison Homes President Todd Usher. “We built the first mainstream Zero Energy home in Greenville – a home capable of producing as much electricity as it consumes – and it’s gratifying to see this project recognized amongst our peers.”

Addison’s award-winning project is the model home in Trailside, Greenville’s first all-solar community where every home is certified to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home standard for energy savings, comfort, health and durability. The model home is also the first in the Southeast to qualify for Active House – a European designation of optimal daylighting, indoor air quality and resource efficiency.

This project also earned HBA of Greenville’s Southern Home & Garden Bridge Award for Green Building and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Housing Innovation Award. The Home Builders Association of South Carolina will feature Pinnacle Award winners in an upcoming issue of “S.C. Builder Journal.”

In addition, the projects will be highlighted on the S.C. Department of Commerce and the S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism websites to emphasize the craftsmanship of South Carolina’s residential builders. See next page for a complete list of 2016 Pinnacle Award winners.
