Q & A
Q. 'In what year did you start your business? Tell us about your company history?
A. BPC Green Builders was incorporated 12 years ago with the express intent to build green homes exclusively. Since that time, we have built and completely re-built 24 homes.We have completed four LEED homes, two at the platinum level, one at the silver level, and one awaiting certification. We have a fifth registered and just underway.All of our homes are Energy Star certified at five stars. Ten years ago, we built an American Lung Association Health House, the first and only in the state. Two of our homes were named by the state HBA as the Best Energy Efficient/Healthy Homes in the state for 2004 and 2006.We have attended numerous green building and building science conferences around the country in the last twelve years. Our understanding of the basic elements required to achieve high performance homes is unmatched in the area. One of the company principals is a mechanical engineer who understands the tremendous HVAC load reductions that are possible with well insulated, air tight envelopes. This understanding provides the basis for dramatic down-sizing of mechanical systems.
