Simon Druart, Co-Founder
Simon has always been inspired by sustainability. Growing up between Belgium and France, he studied mechanical engineering and design. His passion for construction was born in 2009 while traveling in Europe and being exposed to new sustainable building techniques and materials. He quickly combined sustainability and construction by focusing his learning on Eco-friendly materials and autonomous houses. He moved to Canada in 2016 and worked for a Passive House builder before starting his ambitious adventure with Thomas and Horizon Eco Builders
Thomas DuBoyce, Co-Founder
Thomas started his journey towards sustainable building while working in commercial carpentry in 2015 and getting a first hand view of how much material wastage is the norm in the industry. He began immersing himself in alternative building methods, and started working for a high efficiency/Passive House builder based in Vancouver, Canada. On this journey he has learned not to accept the status-quo in the building industry, but to constantly strive for more efficient and better solutions to common issues.
