2 new categories announced for the SIPA 2018 Building Excellence Awards

from SIPA

Smaller House and High Perfomance categories will strive to reflect changes in the ever evolving SIP industry.

Single Family (Smaller House) will recognize homes designed under 900 square feet that have traditionally found it difficult to compete with larger homes in the "under 3,000 square feet" category.

High Performance will separately highlight projects that feature eco-efficiency, health, resilience, sustainability and renewable energy. Certifications and documentation to support their claims of high performance will be required.

Note: All residential projects are encouraged to have a HERS Index calculated by a RESNET certified home energy rater. High Performance category projects must present a HERS Index with blower door data for residential projects. Commercial High Performance projects must provide other documentation of energy efficiency.

The complete list of all BEA categories:
    High Performance Single Family under 900 square feet
    Single Family under 3,000 square feet (but greater than 900 square feet)
    Single Family over 3,000 square feet
