We would like to congratulate Team Canada on placing 10th at the 2011 Solar Decathlon! The team has worked tirelessly over the last weeks building, dis-assembling, re-assembling, dis-assembling and re-assembling (again!) the TRTL for the international competition in Washington, DC.

Team Canada's concept house - Technological Residence, Traditional Living (TRTL) - is a net-zero home that features a range of materials that offer resistance to mold, fire and the extreme elements of Southern Alberta, Canada. The materials, including Innotech Tilt + Turn Windows and Terrace Swing Doors, were chosen because they also significantly extend the life of the building.
