“Building Knowledge is Mattamy’s integral partner when facing the many building science challenges we encounter in bringing new communities to market. From building science consultation to ENERGY STAR® testing and training, to regulatory updates and programs, Building Knowledge is instrumental in providing Mattamy with the information and tools we need to make sound business decisions and provide well-built homes to our customers. Mattamy partners with Building Knowledge because we can consistently rely on them to keep us updated on changes to codes or energy efficiency programs, and effectively guide us through the change management process. They understand the opportunities and limitations of large-volume production builders and customize their approach to suit our business model.

“We are excited to be embarking on two more Net Zero luxury homes and wished to thank you for your leadership and “showing us the way forward” in high-performance building! I also wanted to convey my appreciation for the great team you have at BKC! Not only are they responsive and prompt but courteous and professional. It’s rare to be able to give an unequivocal recommendation, however, I have unreservedly referred you to my associates on many occasions. Thanks again!”

“Terra View Homes, as an industry leader and builder who recognizes the importance of constant improvement, has worked closely with Building Knowledge for over a decade and has found their expertise in the Building Science field invaluable. We recently increased our spec to nothing less than Net Zero Ready and could not have made this leap without the support of the staff at Building Knowledge. I am in communication with their staff on a weekly basis and have taken advantage of their on-site and off-site training sessions multiple times as we move towards increasing the knowledge of our staff and industry partners.”
