Here's what they're saying

Homeowners

"I love my Platinum certified home. It’s efficient, comfortable, and has environmental features that I chose, like hardwood floors and an improved air filter. My kids breathe easier, and their asthma and allergies are not as severe in this home. Keep up the great work!" Derek Satnik, homebuyer, Ontario

Builders / Renovators

"We are now looked at as an industry leader in the Lower Mainland and have a line-up of clients looking at us to build their homes. I feel a lot of that is due to the BUILT GREEN® program and what we have learned about performance construction from it." David Adair, Partner, Blackfish Homes

 

“The program checklist acted like a guide to help us navigate through our first sustainable renovation. The options available were common sense and showed us new, better, and more durable choices. As a renovator committed to quality and craftsmanship, this is complementary to the work we do and offers our clients a higher performing home.” Stan Neufeld, A Cut Above Living 

 

“The renovation program offers the consistent, clear approach Built Green’s other programs have in terms of process, priority areas, and options available. We’re happy to be participating and offering input into the program at this stage,” Mark Nowotny, My House Design/Build Team Ltd.

Product Catalogue users

“The product catalogue is a great resource for builders—time is saved in sourcing building materials as those materials included have already been shortlisted through Built Green Canada. It allows us to focus on our core business of building better, more efficient homes.” Dave Krasman Director, Corporate Purchasing Jayman BUILT

Warranty Providers

"BUILT GREEN® programs encourage better built homes. Many of our members actively certify their builds through Built Green Canada’ third-party certification programs and we recognize these builders as market leaders. The programs—Single Family, Renovation, and High Density—all take a 'house as a system' approach to sustainable building that addresses energy efficiency and then goes beyond to include materials and methods, indoor air quality, ventilation, waste management, water conservation, and business practices. We encourage all our builders to use best practices and continually make quality, innovative improvements, homes certified with Built Green Canada supports this thinking and encourages excellence.” The New Home Warranty Insurance (Canada) Corporation
