Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers to a structure and using process that is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. This requires close cooperation of the design team, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages.The Green Building practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. (Source: Wikipedia – Green Building)

“Mindscape understands my needs as a builder. They know their stuff. They’re reliable, fair, and exceptional to work with.”

– Paul Viidik, Kenmore Homes

Core markets we serve in the housing sector include custom and production homebuilders, as well as mid-rise residential and whole-community or neighborhood developers.  We understand the need for projects to be appropriately designed, to have good financial returns, and to be delivered on schedule.

Builders & Developers

The Ontario Green HomeIf you are a builder or developer and are considering your opportunities to join the sustainable housing industry, then consider Mindscape’s benchmarking services:  we will EnerGuide test your last few builds, and interview you briefly (30-60 minutes).  The results of both will give us a strong feel for which green building programs will best suit you as a builder, and for what exactly you might be ready to try.  For example, most builders are not ready to build a LEED Platinum building until they have mastered ENERGY STAR or R-2000.
