Efficient Hillside Home

Project Details

At DMA Engineering, our dedication to excellence shines through in every project, and our latest luxury residential project is no exception. We’re thrilled to introduce this newly underway project, where comfort, safety, and sustainability are top priorities for both the homeowners and DMA.

Nestled in the Colorado landscape, this brand-new residence embraces hillside construction’s eco-friendly features. Designed to harmonize with the natural contours of the property, it minimizes environmental impact and capitalizes on the earth’s thermal mass for optimal energy efficiency. This innovative project will take shape as a two-level structure, featuring an attached garage and guest suite on the first floor, while the spacious second floor will be dedicated to the primary living area, encompassing approximately 4,200 square feet.

Our energy, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing services will emphasize efficiency and utmost comfort. Our team is excited to share the vision and details of this exciting project:

  • Heating: Homeowners will experience the cozy warmth of radiant floor technology on the main level, thoughtfully managed with the warmboard system to prevent overheating, even during the shifting seasons or when doors are wide open.
  • Cooling: Design with an efficient forced air system on the lower level.
  • Innovative Radiant Floor: We’re recommending a system that provides precise temperature control and optimizes occupant comfort.
  • Climate Control: Ability to set an ideal temperature with a heating setpoint of 70°F and cooling setpoint of 73°F.
  • Serenity and Serenity: Noise sensitivity is a priority for this new home, and a rating of 7 ensures tranquility, complemented by ceiling fan coil units for that peaceful atmosphere.
  • Air Quality: Occupants and guests will breathe easily with MERV 13 filters that deliver superior indoor air quality, eliminating the need for odor mitigation.
  • Optimal Temperature Management: Our smart design maintains a lower temperature for heating and a higher temperature for cooling when unoccupied.
  • Humidification: Steam humidifiers maintain ideal humidity levels for well-being.
  • Snowmelt Safety: We’re mindful of safety, especially on steep driveways, where snowmelt systems are essential to prevent accidents. Homeowners expect mandatory snowmelt in front of the garage and at the driveway’s end. For the remaining driveway, snowmelt solutions may be applied as needed, ensuring a safe environment.

This is just the beginning of an exciting journey. Stay tuned for updates on this extraordinary luxury home build!
