We design, or provide design support for, a wide range of projects. Our practical experience with materials and sequencing of work shows in our drawings, details, and specifications.
Energy Efficient Design, Construction and Assessments
Whether you are looking to construct a new building, or modify an existing building, we can provide design, energy modelling, budgeting, and construction services with energy efficiency in mind. Our in-house Certified Passive House Designers and Certified Passive House Tradesperson can work with you in design, budgeting, and installation to meet Energy Step Code, Net Zero, Passive House, or other energy standards.
Our team of Certified Energy Advisors can help guide your energy efficiency improvements and provide access to government grants. The Government of Canada has committed to 700,000 Greener Home Grants up to $5,600 to help homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their homes. A pre and post-renovation energy assessment is required to qualify; we can provide these assessments and help guide your retrofit journey. With our energy consulting services we provide blower door testing for new construction of residential, commercial, and multi-unit residential buildings. These services can be used for code compliance and energy efficiency improvements.
Investigations & Forensics
We provide investigation and forensic services to evaluate a wide range of building enclosure performance issues, such as: water leakage, condensation, air leakage (energy loss), building enclosure component performance issues (ie. glazing, cladding, roofing, below grade) and structural performance. We also provide building assessments, warranty reviews, and pre-purchase evaluations as part of our investigative services.
Well executed projects occur when the costs, schedule, and execution are consistent with the client expectations. Communication is the key. A savvy Project Manager, working in conjunction with a good General Contractor/Construction Manager, are key to providing a successful project. We work as a Project Manager to: develop project budgets, work with the project professionals and local municipality to finalize the design, and work with the General Contractor or Construction Manager to ensure the project is completed on budget and on schedule. We have experience in a number of projects, such as: building enclosure renewals, additions and alterations to existing buildings, and implementation of major maintenance projects.
Construction Project Management and General Contracting
We provide construction project management and general contracting services, with a focus on exterior repairs, renewals, and upgrades to existing buildings. We use high performance materials and construction techniques to meet the most demanding expectations. We love working with Owners of buildings as they value our attention to detail, dedication to quality, and ability to minimize disruption while working within occupied spaces. We treat your building, and the people living in it, like how we would want ours treated; each project is handled with integrity, quality, and trustworthiness as our guiding principles.
We provide a number of services related to performance claims, such as: investigation and assessment of the performance issues, repair design development, project costing, and project management. We work with our client to determine where we can provide value to the project.
