Deltec Wins Second Department of Energy Housing Innovation Award

This just in! Our recent certified Zero Energy Ready Home, a custom Ridgeline F recently built in Wilmington North Carolina, received a 2021 Housing Innovation Award from the US Department of Energy! This is our second such award, with a previous Ridgeline B project winning a Housing Innovation Award in 2019.

Our President, Steve Linton, our Marketing Director, Scott Cocking, and our Green Building and Sustainability Manager, Leigha Dickens, will be virtually attending the EEBA (Energy and Environmental Building Alliance) conference this week to accept the award, speak about our embodied carbon, marketing, and resiliency, and learn from lots of other high performance builders on the innovative things they are doing to tackle healthy, high performance, and climate-conscious homes.

A case study of the Ridgeline F will be features on the Department of Energy’s Tour of Zero website, check back here for the link when it becomes available. In the mean time, you can see our own recent blog on this project here, and see a list of all the 2021 Housing Award Winners here. (Thrilled to see North Carolina so well represented among award recipients!)

A special thanks to Old School Rebuilders LLC, out of Wilmington, our excellent turnkey builder partner for this project.
