• Initial capital investment in energy efficient construction results in long term savings

  • 50% of residential drinking water use is for flushing toilets... such a waste of a precious resource

  • Innovative technology provides us with the opportunity to create new and viable solutions to old problems

  • Think about this as your house... there are solutions

  • The future holds endless possibilities, all we need to do is think beyond the horizon

Current projects focus on residential energy efficiency

One of the keys to the high-energy efficiency of the double wall system is an integral air vapour barrier. The independent interior wall, inside the R-32 insulation and the sealed vapour barrier, provides a conduit for all the electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems to all be inside the vapour barrier, with limited protrusions through the vapour barrier. This principle of construction is true throughout the construction of the house – from the insulated concrete foundation, the exterior walls to the ceilings and roof system. It is this integral air vapour barrier and the increased insulation values that create the high level of energy efficiency.


The Sustainable Development Goals 2030 are an international blueprint to learning to live sustainably on this planet... there is no Planet B

People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. The greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are driving climate change and continue to rise. They are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is projected to rise over the 21st century and is likely to surpass 3 degrees Celsius this century—with some areas of the world expected to warm even more. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.


The battle has just begun

In 2015 COP21, also known as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, for the first time in over 20 years of negotiations achieved legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2 degrees C.


The planet is losing fresh drinking water at an alarming rate

Over half of the water consumption in the average household is directly attributed to flushing of toilets and this percentage increases with an increase in the number of people living in the house. The water collection and recycling system in Boychuk House is the first of its kind in the Capital Regional District of Greater Victoria, BC.
