Description

A Passive House is an ultra-low energy home that requires very little energy for heating or cooling. In fact, a Passive House is built without a standard central heating system. A Passive House is based on five criteria which are met through intelligent design and implementation: thermal bridge free design; passive certified windows; central ventilation system and heat recovery system; quality insulation and air tightness construction. Kingdom Builders are one of the leaders in building Passive Homes and Energy Efficient Homes in Vancouver and committed to the City's Greenest City Action Plan and support any initiative that promotes sustainability, exceptional building practices, social responsibility and Green economic development. Featured in the video is a leading authority on Passive Houses, Chris Higgins, City of Vancouver’s Green Building Planner. Kingdom Builders have been building beautiful custom homes for over two decades. Beginning as a small construction company, Kingdom Builders have since grown into one of the most sought-after, high quality general contractors in Vancouver for premium and luxury custom homes. Throughout their evolution, Paul Lilley (Principal) and his team at Kingdom Builders have maintained the same focus on project management, relationships and value. They have built a network of exceptional trades and craftspeople who bring the highest levels of reliability and integrity to every custom house they build. The result is strong relationships and hundreds of completed projects, delivered on time and on budget. Learn more about at http://www.kingdombuilders.ca
