Boschâ??s Serenbe Earns Award
The Bosch Experience Center received the Light Commercial Project award from the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and Southface for its application/use of energy-efficient technologies and renewables like low-flow water fixtures, solar photovoltaics, geothermal heating and cooling, point-of-use water heating, and energy-efficient HVAC.

LONDONDERRY, N.H. — The Bosch Experience Center (BEC) at Serenbe was awarded the EarthCraft Light Commercial Project of the Year by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association and Southface as part of the EarthCraft Celebration of Excellence.

The BEC is a learning and education center showcasing Bosch technologies for the home.

The EarthCraft awards comprise 11 categories centered on recognizing builders, architects, engineers, project managers, and contractors for their commitment to advancing sustainable construction and providing healthy, comfortable, and durable homes and workplaces.

EarthCraft is a green building certification program designed to address climate, energy, and water issues unique to the Southeastern U.S. Since its founding by the Greater Atlanta Builders Association and Southface in 1999, the EarthCraft program has certified 28,500 projects throughout the Southeast.

All EarthCraft projects exceed building code standards for energy and water efficiency, provide efficient lighting and appliances, use resource-efficient construction techniques, meet high standards for construction quality and durability, and provide healthy IAQ for daily comfort.

The BEC serves as a learning and education center for an array of energy-efficient technologies, including renewables, all from Bosch. The center is a direct reflection of Bosch’s commitment to preserving the environment for future generations and fostering sustainable practices.

Inside the BEC are Bosch product displays from the company’s various business units such as appliances, tools, heating and cooling equipment, a solar thermal panel, automotive clean-diesel technology, security and sound systems, aluminum structural materials, and a geothermal heat pump and loop display.

The building itself is cooled and heated by a geothermal heat pump, solar thermal panels provide hot water to the kitchen, photovoltaic solar panels provide electricity, and tankless water heaters provide hot water to the bathrooms.

The BEC at Serenbe officially opened on May 31, 2013, and is open from Thursday to Sunday each week.
