North Branch Construction



North Branch Construction of Concord was involved in implementing construction of sustainable-designed projects long before “green construction” was a common term. In 1997, North Branch completed construction of its first official “Energy Crafted Home” in Bedford, NH, which also qualified (scoring 90.4 out of 100) for the EPA Energy Star designation as well. It was one of the first in the state for a home of this size (30,000 sq. ft.).  This home featured:

  • A geothermal heat pump system supplied with water from a 3 million gallon man-made pond
  • 84 KW wind generator
  • Double exterior walls with foam insulation
  • 500,000 BTU Heating, 50 tons cooling, 33 fan coil units
  • Radiant slab heat for excess energy storage
Since that time, North Branch has completed several projects which have received thousands of dollars in Energy Star rebates, including the Wadleigh Falls Road Senior Housing project in Newmarket, NH, which recently received approximately $77,000 in rebates as a qualifying EPA Energy Star Home.  North Branch was awarded the Energy Star for Homes Outstanding Achievement Award in 2007.

North Branch has also completed several projects with materials considered “environmentally friendly”, including standing lodgepole pine from Wyoming used in the exterior columns, recycled lumber from Washington State, chemical-free earth weave wool carpets, and windows manufactured out of wood from managed forests.
