BA-PIRC Partnership with

Pittsburgh, PA

The New American Home 2007

BA-PIRC provided assistance with the National Homes Builders Association and Builders Publication’s site built demonstration projects. Our involvement within Budget Period 1 spans years 2006, 2007 and 2008. We assisted IBACOS with construction documentation and home performance testing of the 2006 and 2007 The New American Home (TNAH). We also provided the FGBC green home certifications for the 2007 Renewed American Home and The New America Home.

BA-PIRC assisted IBACOS with construction documentation and photographed construction progress several times each month to monitor TNAH 2008 process. In addition, FSEC assisted IBACOS in the installation of monitoring equipment, ventilation system design, Green certification and Energy Star status with the help of IBACOS. BA-PIRC personnel performed a thermal bypass inspection and EnergyGauge calculations for Energy Star certification. BA-PIRC was also the verifier for this home being the first home certified under NAHB’s new Green Home Standards.
