"Josh and I attend workshops like this during the year so we can keep up with best practices and more efficient ways to provide high quality construction for our customers," states Rich Seltz, Owner of Rich Woods Home Gallery.

Building energy-efficient homes should not be a battle. Attendees were able to pick the topics to assist them in building energy-smart from the start and how to work with customers, suppliers and subs.

There can be obstacles at every turn with subs that circumvent proper installation technique, home buyers that would rather spring for fancy countertops than 2 x 6 construction, overly priced building supplies and equipment. The trainers demonstrated on how to shoot past these roadblocks and build energy-efficient homes that will come in on-budget and on-time, every time.

The sessions included topics on advanced framing, air seal and insulation, diagnostic testing tools, code compliance failure, proper product placement, moisture intrusion in the building envelope, residential energy assessment, lighting, remodeling from the outside, HVAC SAVE, duct sealing and duct testing and mechanical ventilation.

The Call The Shots Builder Training program is sponsored by Alliant Energy and MidAmerican Energy. There were a total of three sessions held across the state. The other sessions were held in Ames and Cedar Rapids.

The trainers discussed how contractors can build energy-efficient homes so that they come in on budget and on time. The trainers included Bill McAnally, Greg Nahn, Dave Ruffcorn, Erin Wiggins, Rob Buchanan and Joe Nagan.
