Sustainable. Attainable. Healthy. Net Zero.
The Ultimate Zero Energy Now (Z.E.N.) Home is designed and built to achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and renewable energy at a price attainable by middle-income home buyers.
A collaboration among Pro Builder, the Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA), and Thrive Home Builders, the 2,400- square foot single-family home is under construction in Denver’s Stapleton master plan for a Fall 2020 completion.
The Ultimate Z.E.N. Home is:
- The perfect balance between architectural beauty and functionality for modern living
- A cutting edge, self-powered home designed to produce as much energy as it consumes
- A practical model for Zero Energy Ready production homes
- A home without compromise
The home will be showcased during the EEBA's Virtual High Performance Home Summit, Sept 29-Oct. 9, and will serve as the sales model for Thrive’s Vitality neighborhood of 39 homes priced in the 600's, a second move-up home in the Denver market.
In addition, Pro Builder is publishing a series of articles about the home's innovative structural, indoor air quality, HVAC, and connected home systems in its print, online, and social media channels (and on this website here), culminating in a feature article about the finished home in the November/December 2020 issue.
