Ductmate Industries, has teamed with American Modular Systems (AMS) to build a Gen7 Concept House on a 50-acre working vineyard in Lodi Wine Country. Designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification, River Vine Vineyards will be one of most advanced, high-end prefabricated residences ever constructed—a state-of-the art smart home that will take sustainable prefabricated design and construction to the next level. The Zero Net Energy building will integrate renewable energy systems, environmentally-friendly materials and cutting-edge products in a home that is livable, functional and energy-independent, using both solar and geothermal technologies to produce as much energy as it consumes over the course of a year.
“Ductmate Industries will be instrumental in making River Vine the inspirational building we know it can be,” said Tony Sarich, owner of River Vine and co-founder of AMS and Gen7 Schools. “Quality products like Ductmate’s are essential to our energy-saving strategies, because they’re sustainably made, highly efficient and hold up to daily use over the building’s long lifecycle.”
According to Sarich, River Vine will showcase a 21st Century living environment, combining modern design elements, advanced technology and modular building science within a sustainable footprint that meets multifunctional needs. The home will be fully automated, with all systems, appliances and electrical components networked for centralized control from a single touchpoint—a concept that can be replicated in future Gen7 classrooms and other buildings.
Construction of River Vine has started at the AMS factory in Manteca and is expected to be completed next summer.

The Green Workplace Challenge is a yearlong competition for businesses, nonprofits, municipalities, and universities to track and measure improvements in energy, water, waste, and transportation. Over 100 organizations in and around southwestern Pennsylvania signed up for the challenge, which began in June 2013 and ended on May 31, 2014. Participants completed a total of 1,668 actions, contributing to a more sustainable southwestern Pennsylvania.
DMI Companies is extremely proud to announce that it won the Medium Business category of the Green Workplace Challenge. DMI Companies’ performance can be attributed to a few key facets of the organization’s sustainability focus. Energy reduction has always been a significant focus for the organization. Regularly scheduled energy audits help the organization identify and tackle areas of high energy consumption, while a strong employee engagement program helps to impart energy, water and waste reduction activities in its employees. It is through these engagement activities that the organization’s employees learn how they can reduce their impact on the environment and live a more sustainable life, both at work and at home. The organization’s sustainability goals would not have been achieved without the overwhelming effort and participation of its employees. Thank you to everyone who participated and helped DMI Companies to win this prestigious award.
