Steve Bluestone, co-founder of ICF Panels and Helix Rebar, and founder of Passive Dwellings, worked with The Bluestone Organization as a developer, general contractor, and property manager, producing thousands of units of housing and tens of thousands of square feet of retail space. Whether working on single-family homes or very large mixed-use apartment buildings, he has helped produce structures that have reduced energy consumption by 90% and more, others that are net zero, and some that are energy-positive (one of which he resides in). He has been an industry leader in energy efficiency for decades and continues to pursue his passion of researching new products and systems and introducing innovative building methods. He has spoken at numerous building and energy conferences and continues to share his knowledge to inspire the industry to reduce overall energy and water consumption. Steve’s firm ICF Panels has successfully found a way to build strong, resilient, fire/water proof Passive House level envelope walls for buildings from single family upwards of 30 stories tall at record low costs.
