We utilize a process that is both value driven & budget minded.

  • Utilizing Lean principles we continue to drive time and material waste out, pushing value up.
  • Strong partnerships make material acquisitions easier and more economical.
  • Double-wall framing, Reduction of thermal bridging while limiting exotic framing techniques


Performance

We build homes designed around you and your specific needs so that when you enter your house you're truly at home. Unlike some design innovations from the past, we use advanced modelling software capable of predicting home conditions in order to tune your home to optimal comfort levels.

  • Energy Recovery Ventilation uses MERV-13filters to keep your air fresh and clean, and removes allergens and other harmful contaminants.
  • Serene home environment.
  • Tailored to your specific needs, no more compromises.
  • ​Wufi energy modelling used to inform design.
  • Identify heating and cooling compromises to optimize window size and location.
  • Provides hygrothermal data to help us manage humidity and mold.
  • Excellent sound isolation so that outside noise won't keep you up and inside sound won't bother your neighbors
  • Dense pack cellulose insulation helps stabilize temperature range summer and winter.

The term Passivhaus refers to a low energy construction standard developed by Dr. Wolfgang Fiest of the Passivhaus Institut Germany. The core focus of the Passivhaus standard is to dramatically reduce the requirement for space heating and cooling, while also creating excellent indoor comfort levels. 

The goal for Harrington Construction is to make Passive House design principles economical to accomplish.  By driving out waste and leveraging our strategic business partnerships we believe that we can produce high performance homes for competitive prices.
