What We Mean by High Performance

Today, we’re seeing innovations in four major areas that are fundamentally changing the way any custom home must be designed and built. OakWood is at the forefront of these innovations. Working with The Holmes Group as Mike’s exclusive Ottawa Partner, we continuously research, test, and validate innovations to ensure they deliver the value promised by manufacturers. The innovations we include in a customized design and build solution for your project depend entirely on your goals and priorities:

Energy efficiency

Strategies for reducing or eliminating your energy costs and carbon footprint

Technology enablement

Incorporate time saving Smart Home and intelligent building automation solutions including IoT

Healthy Home

Ensure a toxin free living space for your family with excellent air quality

Eco-friendly materials

We can build as green as you want with the eco friendliest products and industry leading construction techniques

Incorporating products, technologies, and materials from any or all of these fast changing areas is what we mean by a “high performance custom home”. Many of these products and advanced technologies are complex and require highly specialized technical expertise to ensure they are correctly installed in accordance with manufacturer warranty requirements.
