Brookfield Residential’s vision is to build the Best Places to Call Home and to create resilient, sustainable communities for generations to come. By 2030, Canada’s National Energy Code will require homes to be 80 percent more energy efficient than homes built today. Brookfield Residential’s Symons Gate Passive Haus is a model to inspire future projects and practices, as well as highlight the challenges innovative projects face in defining sustainable housing in the years to come.
The project is one of the foremost examples of energy efficient construction available in the world today, so efficient it doesn’t even require a furnace. Passive Haus offers a glimpse of what sustainability and innovation may look like in the future, and Brookfield Residential is leading the way.
This home features:
• Solar panels
• Passive Haus windows
• A 95% efficient energy recovery ventilation system
