G&M Contracting builds extreme green on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” ABC Television’s Emmy-award winning hit reality show in the nation’s capital. The TV event airs on ABC February 14th at 8pm EST. G&M and thousands of volunteers worked 24/7 for one week to construct one of the most energy efficient homes ever built for the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” television show. Some of the green elements of this build are SIPS panels provided by Winter panel , solar electric systems from Aurora Energy , super-insulating full-frame R-value windows by Serious Materials , insulated Concrete Foundation forms from Leep Green.
The home features a geo-thermal heating and cooling system donated by Climate Master, and a hybrid electric heat pump water heater donated by GE . These are just a few of the green materials and providers used on the project. As a result of the green elements, the Hyattsville, MD Extreme Makeover home scored an excellent rating for efficiency through DOE’s Builders Challenge program. Special thanks to Mr. Jeffrey Christian of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s for his expert guidance in energy efficient technologies.
