Sun Rivers Construction has produced the highest number of Built Green™ Platinum-rated homes constructed by any one builder in British Columbia to date, out-performing all other builders in B.C.
Built Green™ is an industry driven voluntary program that promotes "green" building practices to reduce the impact that building has on the environment. It benefits the homebuyer, the community and the environment and is an opportunity for everyone to choose a "green" future. www.builtgreencanada.ca
Of 75 Built Green™ Platinum-rated houses built and enrolled in the Built Green™ program in British Columbia as at June 30, 2009, 38 were built and enrolled by Sun Rivers Construction at Sun Rivers Golf Resort, re-affirming the company's commitment to environmental awareness. This places Sun Rivers as one of the leaders in the BC residential construction sector with 51% of the entire province's Built Green™ Platinum homes built by Sun Rivers Construction Ltd. right here in Kamloops BC. Building on the foundation of Canada’s First Geothermal Community, the move to Built Green Homes was a natural and responsible evolution for Sun Rivers.
Past CHBA-BC President & Built Green™ BC Builder Tim Kasten explains, "Awarding 38 homes in the Sun Rivers community as Built Green™ BC Platinum homes is a great accomplishment not only for Sun Rivers, but for the City of Kamloops. These 38 homes alone will save over 430 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year. That is the equivalent of removing 72 cars off of Kamloops roads each year! Imagine the possibilities if all builders in Kamloops were as forward thinking as Sun Rivers Construction."
Everyone from the construction crews and Sun Rivers' leadership team have worked hard at training and embracing the changing green technologies. Homeowners who are enjoying their Platinum level homes are thrilled to bring awareness to the issue of environmental sustainability through the latest in green-building technologies.
