The USGBC-MA Cape & Islands Interest Group hosted an evening in late April with presentations and a tour of a new high performance home in Sandwich, Massachusetts. Open to the public (with refreshments graciously sponsored by g Green Design Center) attendees listened to insights and details about the brand new green home during a series of short presentations.
Presenters covered nearly every aspect of the project including:

  • Greg Delory, the designer for the building who addressed the architecture and selection of SIPs as a construction system
  • Nicole Goldman, the green interior designer, who explained green material selections & finishes, kitchen design, and bathroom design
  • Steven Klug, the general contractor, who discussed the SIP assembly and construction techniques
  • Bruce Torrey, who completed the energy modeling and consulting for the home
  • Paul Raymer, who designed the heating, cooling, and ventilation systems
  • Peter & Betsy, who provided insight regarding their values and decisions as the homeowners

Overall the evening was exceptionally insightful with professionals willing to share, and plenty of content available to discuss in the newly constructed energy efficient home.
