Watch Perfect Block ICCF In Action.
In October 2021, Connecticut-based builder Ben Bogie of BPC Green Builders broke ground on a trailblazing project in the Hudson River Valley (climate zone 5). In collaboration with Trillium Architects, the 5000-sq.-ft house is Japanese pagoda–inspired and promises to be lesson-rich.
The overarching goal is to use building science-based best practices—products, techniques, and assemblies—to construct a high-performance, net-positive house. Keeping upfront carbon emissions to a minimum is a crucial objective.
To that end, the project minimizes virgin foam insulation, reduces concrete where feasible, is engineered to avoid the need for steel and optimizes materials made of recycled content.
