At HeatSpring, we celebrate innovative builders and designers who work to improve the overall quality and performance of public and residential buildings…
Our Leaders in High Performance Building Giveaway was created for those who have helped plan, design, construct, and/or operate a high performance building. Entrants could submit a photo of their high performance project(s).* The photo could show the entire high performance building or a feature of the high performance building (systems, etc). We randomly selected a winner in February 2016!
