A personalized approach to building

Innovative Building and Design has been in the business of creating beautiful spaces for customers in the Pioneer Valley since 1988. We work closely with our clients to realize their goals by producing a quality project that we can all be proud of upon completion. We have long-specialized in homes that are environmentally healthy, energy efficient, and skillfully executed.

Every client has a vision of how they hope their project will turn out.

At Innovative Building and Design we believe in listening carefully to our clients, so that we understand their goals and can help bring their unique visions to fruition. Each project we are involved with means as much to us as it does to the customer.  Building or remodeling your home is a huge commitment on many levels, and we stand by you each step of the way.  No matter what your budget is, your project will receive the same attention to detail.  Your new space will be thoughtfully designed, beautifully crafted, and will function efficiently.  We are dedicated to bringing your project to completion on budget and on time.  Most importantly, we believe the experience should be an enjoyable one.

Our commitment to energy saving technologies, in a world of ever-increasing energy costs, lies at the center of our building philosophy.  The costs of home heating oil, propane and natural gas have risen dramatically over the last twenty years. Projecting those numbers over the next twenty years, it is clear that these costs will become unmanageable to most of us. This is why we feel strongly about looking at Innovative approaches to home construction.

Our Philosophy

We built our first passive solar home 25 years ago and continue to employ the latest techniques in energy conservation such as geothermal heating and cooling, smart home systems, and state of the art insulation.

Passive solar techniques such as building orientation and window placement, which can be integrated into any architectural style, are used to more effectively capture the sun’s energy.

Geothermal heating and cooling systems take advantage of the constant ground temperature. They transfer heat from the ground to your house in the winter and run in reverse in the summer, providing clean quiet comfort all year round.

Smart home systems coordinate various aspects of the house such as lighting, heating, and ventilating to reduce energy use. 

Insulation systems are individually designed to retain as much of a building’s energy as possible. We use cost effective environmentally sound cellulose insulation made of 100% post-consumer recycled materials in areas such as attics and walls, and highly effective foam insulation in transition areas, resulting in a very well insulated airtight building envelope. Heat recovery ventilators ensure a steady supply of fresh air with minimal heat loss.

All of these techniques contribute to substantial savings in energy costs and ultimately help us get away from the use of fossil fuels.

We offer a full range of residential construction services, from energy saving renovations and authentic restorations to beautiful custom homes and additions.
