September 4, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Green Builder® Media recently launched a new online resource created to help builders design more sustainable, high-performance homes. The content for this first edition was provided by BASF.

Energy efficiency and resource conservation continue to be a hot topic in the building industry. Included on the site are downloadable PDF’s with information on The HP+™ Wall System – an integrated building system that helps builders deliver structures with exceptional control of heat, air and moisture.

“BASF offers solutions to the residential construction industry through our BEYOND®.High Performance approach. The Green Builder Media online resource is a great vehicle through which we can share our knowledge of building science and educate the industry on our innovative product offerings and practices in residential construction,” said Mary Poma, Manager, Market & Customer Development, Sustainable Construction, BASF.

A case study about the collaboration with Tim O’Brien® Homes, a Wisconsin builder utilizing BASF’s consultative approach, HP+™ Consultative Solutions, is also available. Builders can use the case study as a demonstration on how builders can evaluate costs and systems on a home to help optimize the value for themselves and their customers—and achieve significantly lower HERS scores.

Check out the videos, which cover the importance of occupant behavior in tight homes, durability, code issues, and developing improved building processes. Plus stay tuned for more news and downloadable resources that will be offered through this site.
