Build the home of your dreams while saving money and reducing energy costs. For single-family projects, the
Build SMART system yields a 60-70% reduction in energy bills, easily offsetting the monthly cost for the fractional increase in construction cost.
Our system approach isn't limited to single-unit homes. Scale up the
project, and scale up the savings.

For multi-family projects, the Build
SMART system can be implemented with no cost premium by applying the savings (40-60%) from the reduced mechanical system size to the envelope improvements.

The Build SMART system of products can fit the needs of commercial
clients. The combined software-based design and panelized construction
make a simple-to-assemble system for mixed-use spaces. These module
designs greatly reduce costs, making Build SMART ideal for large
production work.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

Every seam or hole in the perimeter wall of a conventionally built structure means an unintended loss of conditioned air. In the summer, cooled interior air leaks out and hot, moist air leaks in. In the winter, heated air escapes and cold, dry air comes in.
Build SMART's panelized wall system greatly reduces those seams and holes, saving the owner significant energy costs. Build SMART components perform to the Passive House standard of <0.6 air changes per hour, and meet the Passive House thermal bridging and insulation requirements.

All of the Build SMART components are prefabricated of high-quality materials constructed in a weather-protected environment. This ensures that a Build SMART structure won't suffer compromised performance or premature decay caused by exposure to adverse weather conditions during conventional site-built construction.

Build SMART wall panels come with preinstalled, air-tightened windows and doors. This not only cuts out this part of the job for the builder, it also guarantees a level of airtight, thermal performance that’s difficult to achieve with traditional, field-installed windows and doors. Our PVC-framed, tilt-turn windows and doors are Passive House-certified. 

CONSUMES 60-70% LESS ENERGY

Energy-efficiency is now possible for anyone who chooses to use Build SMART products. Yes, YOU can afford a green home. Build SMART is breaking the status quo to bring energy-efficient homes within reach for every family in America, no matter your income level.

SIMPLE TO DESIGN

Build SMART simplified the designer’s job by eliminating the need to specify every minute detail of a building's perimeter walls. The plug-and-play Build SMART components allow designers to create a high-performing building envelope with the confidence and assurance of both quality and price.

No more guesswork about assembly airtightness, thermal bridging or cost. Just tell us the R-value you want, and we’ll deliver a system that meets stringent Passive House standards and your client's budget. Moreover, Build SMART components don’t limit the architect’s design. Create a home or building to your preferred aesthetics – whether it’s traditional, transitional or modern. To get started designing your Build SMART project, download the component files in AutoCAD, Sketch Up or REVIT.   

AFFORDABLE TO OWN

Energy-efficiency is now possible for anyone who chooses to use Build SMART products.Let our system stop the bleeding on utility bills. 

Did you know that since 2000, spending on utilities has increased by 56% while overall consumer spending has increased only 38%? Apply the money you save on energy bills to the equity in a high-performance, airtight home... and REDUCE your carbon footprint.


EASY TO BUILD

High-performing, energy-efficient construction may sound great in theory, but often it calls for additional protocols and premium rates that would tack on time and cut into your profits. So why change the time-tested construction methods that have led to your success this far? Because times are changing, and Build SMART makes designing and building to high-performing Passive House standards easy.

Simple to order, affordable to build, easy to finish -- Build SMART components don’t require additional training or specialized trades. Use the same electrician and plumber you’ve already got on speed-dial. And get Passive House levels of energy usage for the same cost of conventional construction, with a faster build time. Imagine telling that to your customers.

We’ve got the numbers to prove it. Numerous buildings across the U.S. are successfully demonstrating how simple the Build SMART system is to implement, at a cost that is competitive with traditional site-built construction. Download the installation manual
