Go beyond efficient at this year's International Builders' Show

 

BASF and industry experts demonstrate how you can go beyond efficient at this year’s International Builders' Show

An increasingly stringent building code environment together with heightened awareness and concern for energy efficiency among homebuyers has elevated the demand for more high-performance homes. Progressive builders are already getting ahead of the curve, investigating alternative construction methods and products that allow them to bring greener, more energy-efficient solutions to their residential construction projects—and along the way, differentiate themselves in a crowded and complex marketplace.

 

Through its BEYOND.High Performance® approach to residential construction, BASF is helping builders enhance their efficiency value proposition—both in the way homes perform and how they are constructed.

 

Efficiency in Performance

By looking at the house as an integrated system, builders can take advantage of real cost-shifting opportunities, like installing right-sized mechanicals and reducing lumber content by up to 25 percent. The system also improves moisture management, which can increase thermal and structural performance and reduce costly builder callbacks.

As educated homebuyers continue to become more aware of energy efficiency and its role in making their lives more comfortable, healthier and affordable, builders have an increased opportunity to offer them homes that deliver on that promise. By partnering with BASF and putting the BEYOND.High Performance approach to work on their projects, builders are discovering precisely how they can accomplish this.

 

The approach combines two complementary initiatives together: HP+™ Consultative Solutions provide the insight and support integral to developing the right high performance construction strategy, while the integrated, systems-centric solutions within the HP+ Building Enclosure System can help make the performance plan a reality.

 

Bringing together select proven BASF products—like its closed cell spray foam that offers industry-leading air permeance ratings and superior insulation R-value—into single, integrated systems results in a solution that provides exceptional control of heat, air and moisture, significantly contributing to building energy efficiency.

 

The system offers the increased indoor air quality and better overall comfort homebuyers are looking for, with less drafts and temperature swings. And by increasing the home’s energy efficiency, it also provides them a lower cost of ownership across the life of their home.

Efficiency in Construction

Balancing the homebuyers desire for high-performance homes with the cost of building them is an ongoing challenge for builders. BEYOND.High Performance can help builders offset the cost of constructing energy-efficient homes.

 

By looking at the house as an integrated system, builders can take advantage of real cost-shifting opportunities, like installing right-sized mechanicals and reducing lumber content by up to 25 percent. The system also improves moisture management, which can increase thermal and structural performance and reduce costly builder callbacks.
