Taggart Construction is a highly respected custom builder providing design/build services to residential and commercial customers. Since 1994, they have been constructing high performance, energy efficient, environment friendly and occupant healthy buildings. Their architect works with customers to create a home that incorporates “green” building practices based on the client’s style and lifestyle. In addition to new construction, Taggart’s portfolio includes renovations, kitchen remodels and historic restoration. Freeport Woodworking, a Taggart partner, provides handcrafted architectural millwork, cabinetry and custom-designed furniture.
One of Taggart’s newest projects called Terrapin Passive House will break ground in spring 2010 in the eco-friendly adult community, Terrapin Green, adjacent to Blandings Park Wildlife Sanctuary in Biddeford, Maine. The Passive House Standard incorporates today’s highest energy efficiency requirements with an estimated energy consumption reduction of 70% to 90%. Terrapin Passive House will be built to meet the international Passive House Standard.
Taggart Construction designed and built the first home in the United States to achieve LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. A second Taggart home was designated LEED Gold Certified. As a 100% ENERGY STAR Partner, homes built by Taggart Construction consistently achieve the highest performance levels available in the ENERGY STAR Program. In addition to design/build work, Taggart Construction seeks to partner with design professionals interested in high performance green buildings. Participating as a team member during the design/development phase of a project is the best way to utilize Taggart’s expertise in building science, energy systems, and green building techniques.
