Toronto, ON (PRWEB) August 27, 2007
Amvic Building System officially announces an open house to be held at the NextGen ‘First to the Future’ Demonstration Home on September 25, 2007 between 1:00-7:00pm, in Seattle, WA.
The open house, hosted by Amvic (http://www.amvicsystem.com) and the local general contractor, Anderson Construction Group (http://www.andersoncg.com), has been timed to attract attendees of the Buildex Seattle, Construct Seattle and Design Trends Seattle tradeshows, occurring on September 26-27th at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center. The home is a short drive from the convention center, making it a worthwhile trip for visitors in town for the show.
The purpose of the NextGen Home is to showcase the hottest innovations in home construction and technological solutions that are both easy-to-use and affordable. This particular open house is aimed at educating builders, developers and designers who are interested in learning more about the green and energy efficient construction methods being used on this project.
During the open house, the home will be part-way through construction, displaying the exterior ‘shell’ of the home, before finishings are applied. In place of typical frame construction for the walls, insulated concrete forms (ICFs) from Amvic Building System were used. The Amvic ICF walls provide a very high r-value, which will reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling to approximately 50% less than a conventionally built house. To further reduce energy use, Amvic’s AmDeck Floor & Roof System as well as radiant floor heating from Rehau were also used.
If you cannot make it out to see the NextGen Home in person, you can learn more from the NextGen website (http://www.nextgenhome.com), the nationally syndicated TV show "Your House & Home" (http://www.yourhouseandhome.tv), or Smart HomeOwner Magazine (http://www.smart-homeowner.com).
