NRG Building Solutions: Building a Green Future.
NRG Building Solutions is a company formed in 2008 with the idea in mind that the Real Estate and Construction markets needed to change. In the passed couple of years we have seen Real Estate sales plummit, foreclosures and short sales spiral out of control, and new construction projects have been stopped in their tracks due to a failing economy. And with the stock market going crazy, there is no telling when these markets are going to bounce back.
However, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how long that tunnel is… And the light at the end of this economic tunnel is what I like to call, the “Go Green” revolution. We are seeing new and innonvative technology being developed every day with not only the consumer in mind, but also how that technology impacts the Earth’s environment. For example, there are new cars being developed in India for a family of four that gets over 50 mpg est, and has lower emissions than a standard family sudan, and its starting price is an impressive $2500.
Affordablility, and Sustainability.
That’s what Going Green is all about.
So NRG Building Solutions set out on a mission to find a way to lower your building’s costs and eco-impact. After doing some digging and talking to virtually everyone, we found a system produced in Phoenix, AZ called the Building Innovative Industries (BII) System. This system uses a panelized wall system that is manufactured in Tucson, AZ by Energy Panel Systems (EPS). These panelized walls, commonly referred to as Structural Insulated Panels or SIPs, have an unprecidented number of benefits compared to standard stick built homes.
The Structural Insulated Panels that Energy Panel Systems produces is unlike any of its competitors. They have been designing and developing new ideas for their walls since 2004. And since the beginning of EPS, there have been over 15 designs developed, each one better than its predecessor. It wasn’t until 2008, that they believed that had finally perfected this new system for building houses. This design uses expanded polystyrene materials encased in a steel frame. The galvanized steel is 2-3 times stronger than wood framing, and the polystyrene foam provides for a better insulation rating than batt insulation could ever hope for.
This system makes your home a much more sustainable building and creates an overall lower impact on the environment. Not only will this system lower your energy bills (which it will substantially), building with NRG Building Solutions is going to make your home healthier for the occupants by reducing dust and pollutants and thats a characteristic that your home can’t afford to be without.
