Take a high-traffic show home project, add a tight timeline, throw in an ambitious scope, and what do you get? A world-class showcase for the importance of teamwork and project management.
The New American Home 2013, a special project of the National Association of Home Builders in conjunction with their recent International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, features sleek, modern design and state-of-the-art technology. We followed CEDIA member electronic systems contractor Eagle Sentry, which was responsible for the home’s systems, as they collaborated with Blue Heron Construction and other partners from planning through completion.
The videos below offer a tour of The New American Home 2013 at four key stages in the process:
Part 1: Planning
The pros at Eagle Sentry work with Blue Heron to plan the system, which will feature intuitive control over energy management, lighting, HVAC, water features, home entertainment, and more.
Part 2: Wiring the Home
Eagle Sentry works hand-in-hand with other trades to ensure timely progress on the project.
Part 3: Final Installation
Eagle Sentry preps for the final installation.
Part 4: Tour the Finished Home
Tour the finished home to see how the technology was integrated seamlessly with the home’s modern design. In-wall touchpanels control a wide range of functions, including lighting, motorized shading, energy management, home entertainment, security, and fireplace. Feedback on the touchpanels tells users the status of various systems in each zone of the home.
