S&A Homes is a production homebuilder that builds houses throughout Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia. They consider themselves a semi-custom homebuilder because of the numerous options they offer homebuyers.
To explore new technologies and building specifications, S&A Homes collaborates with U.S. Department of Enery Building America team leader IBACOS and another Alliance member, East Liberty Development, Inc., to build energy efficient homes in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA.
The community in East Liberty features technologies and strategies seldom used in a production setting in Pittsburgh, including 100% energy efficient lighting, tankless water heating, and an integrated ventilation strategy and air distribution system routing.
The builder's Urban Division is focused on building affordable, high performance homes in urban infill settings. S&A Homes intends to take many of the lessons learned during the East Liberty project and incorporate them into standard practices for all of their divisions.
