Three-Day, Government- and Industry-Backed Showcase to Focus on Innovative, Resilient, and Affordable Solutions for American Families
JOHNS CREEK, GA, June 6, 2023 – Nichiha USA, a leading manufacturer of fiber cement cladding for residential and commercial construction, is playing a key role in the creation of a prototype affordable housing solution created by Hierromat Development, an industry leader in sustainable and affordable housing solutions, that will be on display at the Innovative Housing Showcase in Washington D.C. this spring (June 9-11, 2023). Show attendees can tour the home and see how innovative building materials can be applied to American homes in affordable ways.
Nichiha is proud to announce its generous donation of high-performance architectural wall panels (AWP) to Hierromat, the designers and builders of the Cold Formed Steel penalized prototype home. These panels will be utilized as the primary exterior cladding, showcasing Nichiha's commitment to excellence and pushing the boundaries of sustainable construction practices.
“Nichiha is glad to partner with Hierromat on this endeavor as Hierromat gains momentum in finding new ways to create affordable housing for Americans,” said Jason Monday, vice president of sales and marketing at Nichiha. “Fiber cement is a highly resilient cladding medium that offers reliable protection against the elements while also affording a highly customizable aesthetic. Taken together, this makes Nichiha cladding a solid investment when cost and longevity are paramount priorities, something that is always part of the equation in affordable housing endeavors. This event is a stellar opportunity to demonstrate these key differentiators in partnership with Hierromat Development.”
Presented by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the Innovative Housing Showcase area featuring Hierromat and Nichiha will be located on the National Mall in front of the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. More than 40,000 guests are expected to attend, including policymakers, housing industry representatives, media, and the public. The show will include more than a dozen exhibits open for touring and interaction that address affordability, resilience, and the future of housing.
