High-fibre design

South Surrey's InHaus Development wins award from American windows and doors designer.

BeachHaus 1 at 15611 Columbia Ave. in White Rock.

North Dakota’s Integrity Windows and Doors, the world’s largest and most experienced manufacturer of windows and doors made with Ultrex (a state-of-the-art pultruded fiberglass material) has declared InHaus Development, of South Surrey, one of five winners of the annual Red Diamond Achiever Award Program.

This award recognizes outstanding design, innovation, sustainability and quality in projects by North America’s premier builders, remodelers and architects using Integrity products.

The winners competed against dozens of other submissions.

InHaus won for its entry, BeachHaus I.

The clean, modern lines of this LEED Platinum-certified home are perfectly complemented by a variety of Integrity All-Ultrex windows,” said a press release. “Eight times stronger than vinyl, Integrity’s Ultrex fiberglass is the perfect blend of beauty and durability. The design goal of this highly contemporary home was to leave a small footprint, and to be lit 100 percent by natural daylight.

“Twelve-foot ceilings with wall-to-wall glass give the illusion of additional space, but made it a challenge when it came to solar heat gain. Integrity’s combination of glazing options and Ultrex pultruded fiberglass helped the home meet the rigorous requirements of LEED Platinum status.”
