Collaborating with Habitat for Humanity to find the best solutions

Habitat for Humanity’s vision is to see a world where deserving families have a safe and decent place to live. Together, Habitat for Humanity and our Edmonton-based team developed, constructed, and assembled a pioneering project to bring their vision to life. 

Striving to find solutions, we know that the best ideas come from collaboration. We partnered with Lafarge Canada to create the first net-zero energy home in Canada. We provided architectural and sustainable design services to capitalize on the use of precast concrete as the primary building material and provide a building envelope capable of achieving a net-zero energy status – a building that produces as much energy as it consumes over 12 consecutive months. Features include thoughtful assembly of panels to provide visual relief through color and texture contrasts, green roof and green wall landscape elements, and a solar cap that provides both formal and functional benefit.

By designing this net-zero building, targeting LEED for Homes Platinum certification, home owners will enjoy low utility costs for years to come. We are proud to be a part of this initiative that has such a positive impact on the community.
