BA-PIRC Partnership with
Louisiana System Built Homes

St. Martinville, LA

Louisiana System Built Homes wishes to achieve Energy Star and Green Building standards. In 2008, FSEC researchers toured the facility, performed energy analysis and provided feedback on cost-effective improvements. This modular home manufacturer is of special interest because it uses SIP panels in modular house construction.

Through BA-PIRC's partnership with the LSU AgCenter LaHouse staff, Louisiana System Built Homes (LASBH) is planning a Builders Challenge prototype home beginning in Nov 2009. It will include HVAC in the conditioned space, high efficiency heat pump, outside air ventilation with dehumidification, improved flashing details, spray foam floor insulation, with a painted on vapor barrier. LaHouse staff will continue to provide technical assistance to this partner.
