Evolve-Built Passive House Featured in New E-Book

Read About Wild Leek Farm — one of Evolve’s Passive House (Passiv Haus) Buildings — in Passive House Canada: Transforming How We Build

Evolve Builders has been focusing on further reducing the environmental footprint of the homes that we build by taking on Passive House Construction projects. One in particular has been recently featured.

Acknowledged for its classic North American farmhouse aesthetically and modern finishes, the project team includes Graham Whiting of Whitefish Architecture as as architect/designer and energy modeller; Local Impact Design as mechanical designer; Evolve Builders Group Inc as builder; Blue-Green Group as verifier.

Wild Leek Farm achieved Passive House levels of performance while keeping the forms and details as streamlined possible, making it more affordable to build and allowing for owner participation on the build.  The team used construction materials with low toxicity;  sustainable, efficient, and local products.
