The Canadian housing industry has long recognized the importance of treating the home as a complete "housing system", rather than simply an assortment of unrelated components.

From the foundation, walls and roof to the ventilation, plumbing and electrical systems, the interaction of all the components of a house is integral in creating safe, energy-efficient and healthy homes that are sustainable and highly durable.

All our homes are built Super E® qualified - approximately 40 percent more energy efficient than those built to minimum building codes.
