high-performance building has become so important to people building new
homes and/or renovating older homes," says Steve Ellis, CEO.

regional and national awards for their work along the way. The company has
built numerous high-profile luxury beachfront homes, two of which
are certified as LEED for Homes Platinum by the US Green Building Council.
