Not only did Ted Clifton and CVH Inc. design/build the overall winner of SIPA’s 2017 Building Excellence Awards, he has been a designer/builder for over 45 years. The company he founded, Zero Energy Home Plans, focuses on promoting building plans that are Built Green® and incorporate Universal Design philosophies. SIP products and construction methods are widely used to help reach their zero energy goals … “because they care for home owners and for the earth we all share.”
Today’s Zero-Energy homes look just like every other home on the block. They are assembled of products readily available in the marketplace, by many of the same suppliers and subcontractors used for other mainstream homes.
Who is Ted Clifton? He is a leader in the movement to change the way the built environment effects the planet we all depend on and he promotes SIPs as a way to affect those needed changes. His philosophy states: “Mankind has not been very kind to the planet lately. How we live, and the homes we build, must be done in a more sustainable fashion.”
