La Dolce Vita! “Caleffi Excellence” Winners Announced


How sweet it is!  A strawbale home designed to meet LEED Gold Certification standards and submitted by Luke Christy of Solar Gain Services, LLC (San Luis Valley, Colo.) is the grand prize entry in the third quarter of the “Caleffi Excellence” contest.  The year-long contest is a platform where designers of hydronic or plumbing systems can showcase their work and receive national recognition.

The top four contestants, as determined by most audited votes received from the public, were presented with an iPad™ mini.  Mr. Christy, the grand prize winner, has won a trip to Italy to see Caleffi World Headquarters and will receive a personalized tour of our factories and design facilities. His entry was selected from a panel of industry experts and Caleffi executives.

Congratulations to the remaining finalists:  Harris-Dudley Plumbing & Heating (Salt Lake City, Utah), JP Heating (Vanderbilt, Mich.) and White's Plumbing & Heating (Kenai, Alaska).
