Tim­ber Block Wins at Amer­ica’s Big­gest Build­ing Show

At the 2017 In­ter­na­tional Builder’s Show (IBS), the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Home Builders (NAHB) bestowed its 2017 NAHB Global In­no­va­tion Award to Tim­ber Block for its R-36 patented home build­ing tech­nol­ogy, a pan­el­ized sys­tem that sig­nif­i­cantly ex­ceeds build­ing codes.

Each year, the NAHB Global In­no­va­tion Award rec­og­nizes the most cut­ting-edge, ad­vanced res­i­den­tial con­struc­tion so­lu­tion. An in­de­pen­dent panel of judges se­lected fi­nal­ists based on de­sign, func­tion­al­ity, in­no­va­tion and use­ful­ness to the builder and con­sumer.

“It is a great honor to be rec­og­nized by the author­ity in the hous­ing in­dus­try for our in­no­va­tive energy-sav­ing homes,” says Parker McGee, na­tional con­struc­tion man­ager and the spokesper­son for the Tim­ber Block team who ac­cepted the award.

Tim­ber Block staff be­lieves their sys­tem won the award be­cause it pushes the in­dus­try bench­mark to an­other level of per­for­mance. As some mar­kets move to a manda­tory R-30 insulation level, the R-36 in­su­lated wall was de­vel­oped to stay ahead of the curve. It pro­vides home own­ers with an ex­cep­tional level of com­fort while sav­ing energy.

“The en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly pan­el­ized sys­tem uti­lizes a true stacked con­struc­tion method to pro­vide strength to the struc­ture; best of all, wall assem­bly is done in less than one day on the job site, sav­ing time and money,” says Mario Fer­ron, busi­ness de­vel­op­ment direc­tor at Tim­ber Block, who fo­cuses on tech­nol­ogy to sup­port and grow their net­work across North Amer­ica. “Adding to the ben­e­fits, the tight ther­mal en­ve­lope re­sults in a highly ef­fi­cient home, so home­own­ers see the sav­ings in their heat­ing and cool­ing bills.’’

Re­ceiv­ing this award added to the ac­co­lades the Cana­dian-based com­pany has racked up over the past few months. In ad­di­tion to the Global In­no­va­tion Award, Tim­ber Block re­ceived three NAHB Build­ing Sys­tems Coun­cils “Jerry Rouleau Awards for Ex­cel­lence” and a Do­mus Award for the qual­ity of their con­struc­tion.
