FarSight Homes is pleased to announce that our Beeton Creek neighbourhood recently received industry recognition for Building Innovation – Low Rise at this past December’s EnerQuality Awards.
Given to a low rise builder who demonstrated innovation, leadership and technical excellence in 2020, through energy efficient and high-performance practices, this prestigious award highlights FarSight’s commitment to building quality homes and communities that showcase environmental sustainability while celebrating design and construction innovation.
“As we continue construction of our first full Net Zero Discovery Home at Beeton Creek, we’re pushing the energy efficiency bar higher again”, explains FarSight’s Johnathan Schickedanz. “Not only are many of the exciting new technologies and innovations that will be found within our Discovery Home showcased within all of the homes at Beeton Creek, but they’re also included as Standard Features!”
EnerQuality’s Awards celebrates the lasting and positive impact Canadian builders are making through their commitment to constructing energy-efficient homes.
“Ontario builders are committed to building better. Hiring job seekers with transferable skills who are eager to learn on the job is also part of building better,” says Monica Curtis, EnerQuality President and CEO. “By building more efficient homes and hiring a more representative workforce, the province’s construction industry is meeting the twin challenges of environmental sustainability and diversity and inclusion.”
Founded in 1998 by the Ontario Home Builders’ Association and the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance, EnerQuality creates voluntary, market-based programs that help builders innovate. They partner with government, manufacturers, utilities and professionals to bring our programs to market.
“Today’s EnerQuality’s builders are serious about sustainability, trained in building science and skilled in quality construction. They’re the best in the business!”
