Welcome to The Studio for High-Performance Design + Construction

The Construction Industry is progressing. During the last few years architects, builders, and homeowners are looking at the value of building multi-family and single family High-Performance dwellings that take into consideration:

  • Homeowner's Health
  • Energy Conservation
  • HVAC System Alternatives
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality
  • Thermal Comfort
  • Resilient Design, Construction, and Durability
  • High-Performance Building Assemblies
  • Reduced Reliance on Outside Power

With High-Performance we introduce new challenges to the architecting and constructing of homes. High-Performance multi-family and single-family dwellings that address these considerations are the focus of the Studio for HighPerformance Design and Construction. Auburndale Builders has dedicated more than one-third of its new passive office facility to providing training and education to the trades, architects, and homeowners.
