How We Work with Builders

BK tech

Building science as it relates to homebuilding and development in Canada is a rapidly-evolving landscape and our team is actively contributing to its evolution as well as providing a knowledge bridge to our professional builders and developers.

We help homebuilders and developers like you meet the swiftly evolving energy, carbon and sustainability targets of new building codes, programs and regional stretch-codes.

Not all of our builders have the same needs.

When we work with each client, the process is dynamic and customized to meet their needs and budget with the most appropriate building science principles, building programs and diagnostic tools.

We partner with you, providing specialized support throughout the whole building process to meet your project goals.

The results allow our professional builders and developers to build better homes, streamline construction details and bring their teams and trades on board with the specific training and education services they most need.

Does this sound like the help you need? It all starts with a conversation. Book a call with our team today.
