“The Performance House” (Greenwich, Conn.) from Preferred Builders earns accolades for green performance, beauty

You don’t nickname a project “The Performance House” unless you can back it up. That’s no issue for Peter Fusaro of Preferred Builders (Riverside, Conn.), though, after earning second place in the 2012 CT Zero Energy Challenge.

Fusaro partnered with Granoff Architects and Steven Winter Associates in designing a gorgeous five-bedroom, 2,670-square-foot home, which has earned an emerald rating from the National Green Building Standard, platinum rating from LEED and a HERS index score of 20. For his leadership in green building, Fusaro and Preferred Builders have earned great coverage from local media.

We’re proud windows from Integrity were used for the project, which blends jaw-dropping energy performance with beautiful aesthetics. See how Fusaro’s collaborated with some of the best green building professionals in the area for this ambitious project in the video case study above.

Wow! That is such a large house for the amazing scores it received. A house like that could easily be my dream home: large and efficient!
