REHAU held its first technical summit regarding the REHAU MONTANA ecosmart last November. The three-year ecosmart project - which included research, design and construction of a residence located in Bozeman, Mont. - will advance into a two-year period of system performance and research in early 2012, once construction of the house is complete.

Summit participants collaborated to define parameters for using the house during this period as both a demonstration project for sustainable residential construction, and as a unique research, measurement and data-gathering entity for building product and system performance.
