Greenville, SC, March 23, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Addison Homes won the Southern Home & Garden Bridge Award for Green Building for the third year in a row.
Produced by the Home Builders Association of Greenville and the Sales & Marketing Council of the Upstate, the Bridge Awards program recognizes the best and brightest in the residential construction industry. Local builders and industry associates were honored in categories such as New Homes, Remodels, Special Features, Sales & Marketing, and Builder of the Year during a gala presentation sponsored by GBS Building Supply.
An Upstate SC builder specializing in sustainable construction, Addison Homes received the 2015 Bridge Award for Green Building for its model home in the Trailside community. This green project – notable as the first Zero Energy Home in Greenville – integrates next-generation high-performance with a savvy-yet-simple aesthetic that appeals to today’s homeowner.
“We envision this as so much more than the typical model home in a new community – indeed, it’s designed to showcase Zero Energy as an attractive, attainable option for mainstream consumers everywhere,” says Addison Homes President, Todd Usher. “While there’s always been a niche for extreme efficiency, our goal is to expand that market with appealing examples of building science innovations.”
The Southern Home & Garden Bridge Award for Green Building was sponsored by Clark’s Termite & Pest Control.
