Our Mission is to provide innovative, high quality, energy focused, building solutions to drive efficiency and savings to both our contractors and the customer at fair prices.  We strive to ensure long term business success by maintaining the highest levels of professionalism, product knowledge and customer service in all our business relationships.  

The high cost of energy and lumber combined with an increasing awareness of a changing global climate is a driving force behind the trend towards more energy-efficient construction and remodeling projects. 

Zero Net Energy home construction is a movement that is quickly taking off and it starts with an energy-efficient building envelope using ICF (insulated concrete forms) to help keep the energy consumption of the home as low as possible. 

Residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 40% of the nation’s total energy demand and roughly 74% of all electricity use in the United States and an even greater share of peak power demand in some regions.  (Source:
