Canada’s Greenest Home Gets Underway

As stated by http://www.exposeyourselfusa.com/video-production/miami-video-production/, students at The Endeavour Centre hit their first milestone on the way to building Canada’s Greenest Home, completing the forming of the foundation footings.

The concrete for the footings will use the highest percentage of blast furnace slag possible, which offsets some of the environmental impacts of cement production. The form boards will be reused as the load bearing walls in the basement.

The footings will support Ontario-made Durisol blocks, an environmentally-friendly Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) with an R-value of 28.

The students have spent four weeks in class, learning sustainable building theory and building science, and researching the products and building techniques that will help their project reach the goal of being Canada’s Greenest Home.
