High Performance

Sound ethics and incredible beauty

Jovick is leading the way in high-performance custom homes and commercial buildings. Our commitment to the latest in energy-efficient technologies and rigorous green-building standards results in beautiful, healthy places for people to live and work. Whether it’s a winery, ranch, or your home, we build with unsurpassed environmental consciousness and uncompromising style.

High-performance buildings employ a set of advanced construction technologies to achieve extreme energy efficiency. Energy consumption is significantly reduced compared to that of conventional homes.

In addition, high-performance buildings are incredibly comfortable, healthy, and quiet. Through the use of an energy-recovery ventilator (essentially a duct-based fan), a gentle flow of filtered air from the outside maintains exceptional indoor air quality and maintains an even temperature throughout.

Because of our relentless pledge to energy efficiency and the use of environmentally-friendly materials and practices, nearly all Jovick homes and buildings have been awarded a third-party certification through LEED, Earth Advantage, Net-Zero, Energy Star, WaterSense, and the Energy Trust of Oregon. Many of these certifications provide economic and tax incentives to their owners.

Jovick professionals are leading the way in high-performance building innovation. Our high-performance homes comply with rigorous standards for energy and water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, non-toxic materials, and environmental materials.

Below are just some of the practices we incorporate into our high-performance approach:

  • Solar power system
  • Energy recovery ventilator
  • Solar tubes
  • Structural insulated panels
  • Air and moisture barriers
  • Interior air sealing
  • High-performance windows and doors
  • Salvaged and reclaimed wood
  • Solar hot water system
  • Engineered lumber for framing
  • Drought tolerant landscaping
  • Non-toxic flooring and cabinetry
  • Water-conserving faucets and toilets
  • Grey-water system harvesting
  • Energy Star appliances
  • Waste diverted from landfill and recycled/reused

High-performance buildings are extremely comfortable, healthy, economical, and socially responsible. They use up to 90% less energy than a traditionally-constructed building. What’s more, these gains in efficiency don’t come at the expense of design. Jovick builds homes and commercial facilities that are elegant spaces that can be designed to meet your lifestyle, aesthetic tastes, and stylistic preferences.
