When it comes to building your dream home, it can be easy to get caught up in what countertops you want, what color the kids’ room should be, and what kind of fixtures to use throughout your new home construction project. But what about planning for a healthy, durable, and energy efficient future for your new home? The whole home experts and Green Building Certified professionals at E3 INNOVATE can develop a sustainability-minded plan for your home, to keep you and your family as healthy as possible while preserving the value of your investment.

Better Homes Through Building Science

The E3 team of building science professionals utilizes a myriad of tools and techniques to make sure your home is designed for success from the get-go, including:

  • Energy modeling 

  • Code compliance 

  • Insulation optimization

  • HVAC sizing 

  • Window selection

  • Daylight optimization

  • Moisture management 

  • Crawlspace encapsulation

  • And much more!

Each new home construction project with E3 INNOVATE generally starts with generating an energy model, which will help optimize the building design and prioritize investments in the areas that will yield the greatest results. Your customized energy model will help us determine the appropriate insulation materials, where we should focus any air sealing services, if you will need moisture management systems, and more. Additionally, we can use that energy model to optimize your space to get the most out of renewable energy technology, including geothermal and solar technology.

A More Resilient Home

Your new home is a large investment—don’t you want it to stand the test of time? Across the country, architects and builders are working to create more resilient structures, capable of withstanding bigger and more frequent extreme weather events, greater temperature fluctuations, and other problems associated with climate change. E3 has the local experience, project planning expertise, and tools to help design and build more durable homes here in Nashville. Regardless of your budget, partnering with E3 INNOVATE will increase the value of your home and protect it for years to come.

Accessibility & “Aging in Place” with Universal Design

As the Baby Boomer population matures, homeowners are showing greater demand for homes that are accessible for every age or ability. According to AARP, older homeowners want to “age in place,” meaning they want to continue to live in their current homes as they grow older. Universal design seeks to create spaces inclusive of all people, through things like optimizing doorways and hallways to accommodate wheelchairs comfortably. 

Having completed the NAHB’s rigorous training and certification program, E3 Founder Erik Daugherty is an NAHB Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS), and will work with you to incorporate universal design in your project. E3 INNOVATE provides valuable insights and recommendations for architects and builders looking to build homes that include universal design and accessibility, and we will work with you from start to finish to ensure that the job is done right.​
