Featured in 2016 Greenbuild KB Home ProjeKt™
The contemporary-styled windows are perfect fit for home offering unprecedented time-travel look ahead to the years 2020 and 2050.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 30, 2016) – Sierra Pacific Windows announces that its contemporary-styled windows and bi-fold door system will be showcased in the Greenbuild KB Home ProjeKt™ demonstration home at the 2016 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Los Angeles, and will be available for in-person discovery tours for conference attendees on Wednesday, October 5 and Thursday, October 6. The home will also be available nationwide via the online virtual tour beginning October 5.
Sierra Pacific Director of Architectural Sales Andrea White said, “Our contemporary-styled, aluminum clad wood windows are a perfect fit for this modernized home. The Sierra Pacific bi-fold system opens up the the entire house, and is designed to create a transparency of living between indoors and outdoors.”
The Greenbuild KB Home ProjeKt, presented by Hanley Wood in partnership with KB Home (NYSE:KBH), BUILDER Magazine, KTGY Architecture + Planning, and the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute and Virginia Tech, is designed to serve as an unprecedented time-travel look ahead to the years 2020 and 2050 as a way to bring new perspective and strategic scenario-planning opportunities to builders and consumers alike. The display at the 2016 Greenbuild Conference and Expo will boast vignettes that feature assemblies and systems, home tours, interactive educational features and a digital wall display.
The home is designed to be sustainable, resilient, and achieve LEED and National Green Building Standard (NGBS) certifications for energy efficiency today, net-zero energy per California’s 2020 goals, and features super materials and innovations for 2050. Composed of cartridges for modularity and movable walls, the home is flexible and able to adapt and change in real-time and over time to conditions and people’s needs. Wellness, safety and health features can be found throughout the home -- from cooking equipment which prevents nutrient loss during food preparation to lighting optimized for circadian rhythms. Technology also plays a key role in the home, featuring automation systems to achieve the ultimate smart home with unprecedented levels of convenience, efficiency, awareness and wellness.
“The Greenbuild home’s focus on sustainability dovetails nicely with Sierra Pacific’s environmental commitment,” White said. “Our parent company Sierra Pacific Industries manages over 2 million acres of timberland, and we take pride in the fact that we utilize almost 100 percent of every piece of wood we bring to our mills. In fact, the small amount that isn’t turned into windows, millwork, lumber or landscaping material is actually converted into electricity in our seven biomass-fueled power plants.”
