2012 EnergyValue Housing Award Celebration Set for Orlando’s Icebar

Those planning to attend the NAHB International Builders' Show can get their tickets now for what will literally be the show’s coolest event — the 2012 EnergyValue Housing Award (EVHA) celebration on Feb. 8 at Icebar, which is located on Orlando’s International Drive.

The awards will be honoring 17 of the nation’s most progressive and innovative contractors in energy-efficient building and remodeling.

The unique venue for the celebration will allow finalists to be showcased in “climate-appropriate” areas — cold climate winners in the Icebar, which stays a chilly 27 degrees; hot climate winners in the toasty Fire Lounge, heated to 72 degrees; and moderate climate winners in the ambient patio area.

The evening will be punctuated with live musical entertainment from Soul-R-Energy, an acclaimed Florida duo. The event will provide fun surprises and great food and beverages — including ice luges with specialty drinks .

There is ample parking at Icebar.

The awards ceremony is expected to sell out early.

For reservations, email Jacquita Ellis at the NAHB Research Center.
