International Building Competition in Irvine, Calif. Promotes Sustainable Home Design

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2015

NanaWall Systems, the industry leader in opening glass wall systems, is featured in three homes within the 2015 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. The Solar Decathlon challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. Each home incorporates NanaWall opening glass wall systems in order to maximize the homes’ connection to the outdoors while achieving energy efficiency, durability, and high structural ratings. Winners will be announced at the end of the competition on Oct. 17.

“NanaWall Systems has been utilized in over a dozen Solar Decathlon homes since 2005, providing engineered solutions to the visions of cutting edge building technology without sacrificing aesthetics,” said NanaWall Systems CEO Ebrahim Nana. “We are proud to participate in this important competition that inspires clean-energy for residential construction.”
