The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded Insight Homes, based in Bridgeville, Delaware, this year’s Housing Innovation Award (HIA).
“Housing Innovation Award winners represent the top 1% of builders across the country who successfully demonstrate they can meet the federal government’s most rigorous specifications for high-performance homes,” said Sam Rashkin, chief architect at DOE’s Building Technologies Office.
“Zero energy ready homes are designed to provide a whole new level of homeowner experience including ultra-low utility bills, ensured comfort, comprehensive water protection, whole-house fresh air delivery, high-capture filtration, contaminant control, and enhanced durability.”
In addition to building ZERO Energy Ready Homes certified by the U.S. Department of Energy, Insight Homes was also named Green Home Builder of the Year in 2017 by Green Home Builder Magazine and a Home Innovation NGBS Green Partner.
“Receiving the HIA in the Production category is a great honor for the team at Insight Homes and shows the commitment we’ve had over the last 10 years to building better homes,” said Kevin Brozyna, Insight Homes director of operations. “We’ve worked hard to educate the local industry and market about the benefits of Zero Energy Ready home building.”
“Our team is extraordinarily proud of this accomplishment,” said Rob Elliott, president of Insight Homes President. “This year was especially competitive with stronger applicants and a more limited number of awards than any prior year.”
Insight Homes is currently building homes in twenty communities in the Sussex County, Delaware and Worcester County, Maryland areas.
