As Utah’s local leader in green home building, Garbett Homes is always looking for new, innovative ways to build better homes for Utah and the people who call it home. And we have once again been recognized for our efforts. During the Energy & Environmental Building Alliance’s High Performance Building Summit hosted in Salt Lake City, Utah, Garbett Homes won its seventh straight Housing Innovation Award.
On the matter of the Housing Innovation Award, the US Department of Energy who sponsors these awards, had the following to say. “Award winners represent the best-of-the-best in new home construction. For these builders, leveraging innovative technologies and systems along with a keen understanding of modern building science principles allows them to deliver an exceptional product to homebuyers. However, their impact goes much further than a happy homeowner. Their leadership allows the industry to see what is possible, paving the way for more rigorous standards and building codes that will improve home performance across the country.”
Winning seven years in a row is a statement of not only our consistency in providing Utah the most energy efficient homes in the state, but our commitment to being the state’s leader in green, energy-efficient home building. This competition consists of homebuilders selected from an esteemed panel of judges, brought together for their expertise in the high-performance housing industry. From this pool of winners, grand winners were selected for each award category below. To qualify for a Housing Innovation Award, homes must be certified to the DOE’s ZERH national program requirements and be independently verified by qualified, third-party professionals.
As of 2023 Garbett Homes is the only locally owned homebuilder in Utah to win multiple Housing Innovation Awards. We live where we build. Your concerns about the Salt Lake Valley’s future are our concerns. We are proud to be recognized by the US Department of Energy and the Housing Innovation Alliance for our work to build the most energy efficient homes in the state.
