As 2012 comes to a close, we reflect on some highlights of the past year. In the last 12 months, Thermocore invested over $225,000 in new equipment to better serve our customers. That investment ranged from high-pressure foaming equipment that creates a stronger, more consistent SIPs insulation core to CAD software that speeds the production of SIPs drawings. These technology investments not only help your next project; they also reflect our belief that better buildings lead to a better environment for generations to come.
We’re also very proud of our participation in Purdue University’s Solar Decathlon home. In their first year entering the international competition, Purdue’s INhome placed second overall out of 19 teams, and tied for first in the Energy Balance category, producing more energy than it consumed. Accomplishing this in a $250,000 home proves that money is not the enemy to net-zero design. With the right material selection, net zero is very obtainable on any budget.
Lastly, we want to thank all our customers and wish you many low utility bills for years to come. Happy holidays and Happy New Year to all!
