Brattleboro, VT (PressExposure) April 22, 2009 -- Green architects Bonin Architects & Associates, PLLC announces an Open House Tour and Free Seminar on Building a Home with SIP Panels, to be held Saturday, May 16th in Brattleboro, Vermont. SIP panels can reduce energy costs up to 50% when combined with other energy efficient building materials; therefore, this is a must-attend event for home buyers interested in building a new energy efficient home.
Seminar topics include structural insulated panel compositions, R-Values, designing a home with insulated panels, the benefits of building a home with SIP Panels, and the construction process. Speakers include green architect Jeremy Bonin, a member of the American Institute of Architects and a LEED Accredited Professional, and Kevin Smith from The Murus Company. Bonin is an acclaimed author and is frequently invited as a guest speaker at green events. As an owner of his own concrete company, Smith became a believer in SIPs when he built his own timber frame home and enjoyed the energy efficiency of the panels firsthand. Ten years ago, he left his concrete business to work in the structural insulated panel industry.
Following the seminar, guests are invited to tour a local Brattleboro, Vermont 2,800 square foot panelized home built with Murus structural insulated panels.
The Free Seminar will be held Saturday, May 16, 2009 at the Holiday Inn Express, 100 Chickering Drive, Brattleboro, Vermont, from 10:00 AM â Noon, and the open house tours will be conducted from 12:30 PM â 2:00 PM. Homeowners will be available at the open house for questions.
