In recognition of their role in advancing home sustainability and energy-efficient home construction, Masco Contractor Services and Owens Corning have been awarded the KB “Home Sustainability Award” for their installation of the new Owens Corning EcoTouch Insulation, a biobased and formaldehyde-free product. Sustainability Awards are presented to companies whose environmentally friendly products have made a positive contribution to KB Home’s “My Home. My Earth.” strategic environmental initiative.
According to KB Home, this is the first time a subcontractor
has received this award, and the first time that a manufacturer and
subcontractor have shared the award.
The award announcement stated, “The recipients demonstrate
integrity, innovation, loyalty, compassion, motivation, dedication, problem
solving and strong business acumen.”
The award was a unanimous decision from all levels of KB
Masco Contractor Services and Owens Corning introduced
EcoTouch Insulation as a standard insulation product in a KB Home new community
construction project. Each new home built received the new insulation, which
required conversion of inventory, training and product specifications.
