Rainier Construction was welcomed as a Building America partner in 2006. A home Rainier had completed construction on “pre-BA Partnership” was performance-tested to create a benchmark for this contractor. This home scored a HERS 94. Rainier’s first Building America home completed construction November 1, 2008 and the residents, Tom and Lynda Oyler are occupying the home (Figure right). During construction BA-PIRC provided energy analysis— projecting the home at a HERS Index of 67; gave advice on foundation and window flashing details, siding installation and other building details; made periodic site inspections; and coordinated the final HVAC and dehumidification system including moisture control detailing and a redesign of the duct system by Calcs-Plus. Final testing of the completed home was conducted November 2008 resulting in a HERS Index of 65 and qualifying for Energy Star tax credit, Builder’s Challenge (E-Scale=65) and Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) Green Home.
