Anyone who fancies herself a regular BuzzBuzzHome Blog reader will know that we LOVE construction photos.

So then you can imagine how floored we were when we found a gold mine of new construction photos from the brilliant Burlington development, Ironstone.

Construction has been well underway for some time at the Davies Smith Developments project and this certainly won’t be the last time that we pass on a series of on-site action shots.

After all, the Ironstone site isn’t like your typical condo job site.

The development will be one of the first buildings in Canada to be equipped with geothermal technology, allowing the condo to draw its energy from an underground source.

According to Davies Smith’s spiffy new blog geothermal energy “uses the earth’s internal heat to create electricity, generate hot water or heat buildings.”

How about we do a little explicating while we dish out some construction site photos…

Geothermal energy is a renewable source that will heat or cool the building as needed through the use of fluid traveling in an underground network of pipes.

Gas and electricity costs fluctuate over time, however this technology will keep residents’ monthly costs-of-living stable over a 20-30 year period. Ironstone residents will simply pay normal fees covering geothermal utility costs and ongoing maintenance of the system.

Ironstone’s geothermal tech will be complemented by solar panels that will help provide electricity as well as green roof areas.

Word on the street is geothermal energy is much more reliable than gas and electrical grids.

Ironstone’s sales centre has been reopened following a temporary closure. Pay it a visit at 1940 Ironstone Drive in Burlington. Hours are Monday to Wednesday between 12pm and 7pm and weekends by appointments only. For more info visit the website. Drop Ironstone a line at or call 905 315 8100.
