Because of the precision construction techniques applied, materials are used more efficiently with less waste, more recycling and less damage through proper storage.
Building indoors allows for your home to be constructed from the inside out. This results in the ability to better insulate through the use of continuous insulation and vapour barriers on the exterior walls. Combining this technique with whole-home ventilation results in superior indoor air quality, comfort and energy savings for you and your family.
Our Atlantic Region manufacturers and their builders also provide a wide range of energy efficient lighting & appliances, water-conserving fixtures and “low-offgassing” materials.
Factory building also means less disruption of your building site so you are also protecting the environment around your new home.
Canada’s factory-based homebuilders have been in the forefront of building with the environment in mind.
