  • Why is the hourly rate for construction companies relatively high?
    When considering hourly rates, it's crucial to understand the comprehensive costs involved in running a construction business. Beyond direct wages, expenses encompass insurance, benefits, equipment, tools, and administrative necessities. Hiring skilled workers incurs additional costs, including Work Safe BC, insurance, and various contributions. The intricacies of business operations, such as licensing, software, taxes, and more, further contribute to the hourly rate. In essence, the charges reflect the holistic financial demands of maintaining a sustainable construction enterprise. We strive to maintain low overhead costs by foregoing the need for a physical office, company trucks, and opting for the efficiency of outsourcing virtual assistant services. This allows us to focus resources directly on delivering quality construction services, providing value to our clients without unnecessary expenses

  • How do you incorporate sustainable practices into your construction projects?
    Sustainability is at the core of our construction philosophy. We take pride in implementing the following Eco-friendly practices: Deconstruction over Demolition: We prioritize deconstruction methods over traditional demolition, carefully dismantling structures to salvage reusable materials. This approach minimizes waste and significantly reduces the environmental impact of construction. Material Salvaging: Our team actively salvages materials from deconstructed sites, repurposing them whenever possible of donating them. This not only reduces the demand for new resources but also contributes to a circular economy by giving a second life to building materials. Minimizing Chemical Usage: Our construction practices emphasize the use of low-impact and non-toxic building materials. By minimizing chemical usage, we aim to create healthier indoor environments while reducing the ecological footprint of our projects. Energy-Efficient Design Principles: Our design process integrates energy-efficient principles to optimize the performance of your property. From strategic placement of windows to the use of insulation materials with high thermal efficiency, we aim to minimize energy consumption and enhance overall sustainability. Design for Disassembly: We embrace the concept of design for disassembly, facilitating easier future renovations or material reuse. This approach ensures that components can be separated and recycled at the end of their lifecycle, promoting a more circular and sustainable construction model. Zero Landfill Goal: Our dedication to sustainability extends to a zero landfill goal. By diverting construction waste away from landfills, we actively contribute to reducing the environmental impact of our projects and strive to leave a positive legacy for future generations. Enhanced Property Value and Efficiency: Our dedication to sustainability goes beyond environmental benefits. It enhances the long-term value and efficiency of your property by incorporating durable materials and energy-saving features.

  • How do you strive to achieve a zero waste to landfill objective?
    Pursuing a zero waste to landfill objective necessitates careful waste management practices. We systematically sort and recycle construction waste, channeling materials toward suitable outlets for reuse or recycling. While we are dedicated to minimizing our environmental footprint and promoting a more responsible and sustainable construction industry, we acknowledge the current challenge of not fully achieving this goal. Some materials remain non-recyclable or challenging to separate. Nevertheless, we are continuously innovating and striving towards greater creativity each day to make progress in reaching our zero waste to landfill objective.
