The Step Code outlines 5 steps to design and build healthier, more comfortable and more energy efficient buildings, with the target of reaching Net Zero ready by 2032.
A Passive House can be 90% more efficient than a similar home built to the BC Building Code. Each primary aspect of the design is covered: super-insulation, airtightness, removal of thermal bridges, high-efficiency windows and solar orientation, ventilation and heat recovery.
This is exciting… When you build or purchase a Net Zero home you’re doing your part to protect the environment against climate change and preserve natural resources for future generations. The total amount of energy used by the home on an annual basis is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the site.
The design-build (DB) process is evaluated, in the context of building your high-performance custom home in the most efficient way possible.
” Coast Essential’s team of craftsmen, architects, and designers specialize in building custom homes from ground up, managing every aspect of the building process from start to finish. “
