- Rammed Earth walls (first time in a single family residence in the Lower Mainland)
- Rainwater recycling
- ICF foundations
- Solar Thermal
- Solar PV
- Concrete made from recycled building waste
- Reclaimed Lumber and Building materials
This project is currently under construction with completion slated for late summer 2013.
