EcoVan collaborates with Vancouver based building designers that have a proven track record for elegant, modern, custom home designing, combined with advanced green building science understanding and experience in Passive House, LEED and Built Green home design, to create spaces designed for healthy and happy living.
All construction or renovation projects that require building permits now require some green building analysis. Wether it is the services of a Certified Energy Advisor (CEA) carrying out an energy audit on a small scale renovation, through to a Certified Passive House or certified LEED platinum level project requiring LEED Accredited Professional services, CEA and Green Rater and Provider services, EcoVan works with the most experienced companies in the lower mainland to provide those services.
For smaller scale renovation projects, EcoVan has a small dedicated team of artisan builders and qualified sub trades. They have been selected by the quality of work they carry out and also because of their dedicated interest in green building and sustainable lifestyles. Many of them are involved in projects creating art, furniture and other design fields using recycled construction materials, reducing uneccesary waste from renovation and construction activity.
On larger renovation or new construction projects, EcoVan works with fully qualified and experienced contractors and tradespeople.
All contractors have training in the Interprovincial Red Seal program or equivalent in their chosen trade, and have demonstrated interest and experience in green building.
