HOLMDEL, N.J., Aug. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The 58th Annual New Jersey Concrete Awards Committee recently announced the Net Zero Home, a pilot project powered by Suntuity Home, as the winner of this year's Merit Award in the "Residential" category.
The top industry honor comes at the completion of Net Zero Home project, which utilized over 260 cubic yards of concrete to construct one of the most resilient, energy efficient, and technologically advanced homes in the nation. Suntuity Home was one of hundreds of nominations for this prestigious award.
The Net Zero Home is the first of its kind in New Jersey. Developed to achieve complete energy sustainability, the project was awarded for its use of insulated concrete forms, hydronically heated concrete slabs, and monolithic pours with both vertical and horizontal rebar.
The unique addition of micro rebar to the home's 14 foot ICF walls further enhanced the resiliency of the structure. At over 5,000 PSI of concrete strength, the Net Zero Home showcases the unique ability to withstand Category 4 hurricane force winds.
Concrete was also leveraged for the Net Zero Home's 29,000 gallon heated pool, foundation slabs, elevated decks, and in the ICF forms around the house.
Suntuity Home, the company that designed and developed the Net Zero Home, meticulously managed the project over this last year to ensure its unique specifications could be achieved. Dan Javan, CEO of the Suntuity Group, believes the innovative success of the Net Zero Home project can start a trend that pioneers future developments of its kind.
"The Net Zero Home was built far stronger than any kind of stick-framed structure, and with the price of lumbar today, it cost less and is more resilient than what it would have cost if we had built it as a traditional home," said Javan. "It is the first home of its kind in New Jersey, and with its finished success, we are looking forward to expanding the development of completely sustainable and resilient Net Zero Homes across the state."
The project was designed as a "net zero" residency that generates all of its energy needs from the 90 solar panels placed on its roof. At two stories and over 4,300 square feet, the Net Zero Home operates as a completely self-sustaining LEED Certified Platinum certified home that meets Energy Star and Department of Energy requirements. The project has been featured in multiple publications that highlight its topline amenities, from its metal roofing to the ecologically and environmentally safe materials used in its construction.
The Net Zero Home will be honored at the Annual New Jersey Concrete Awards Dinner on Thursday, September 23, 2021, at New Brunswick's world class hotel, The Heldrich.
