"Making a Living"
The Pimacihowin project includes youth between the ages of 16-21 attending Cst. Robin Cameron Education Complex and Stobart Community School in Beardy’s Okemasis First Nation.
The program follows a semester system which consists of two five-month semesters in one academic school year.
The Pimacihowin Project collaborates with the housing coordinator and public works director to establish the priorities of renovation projects within the community.
Since the implementation of this project, these youth have shown increased attendance, engagement, and completion of training modules.
The Pimacihowin Project is a program that is recognized and supported by the Ministry of Education with the government of Saskatchewan. Additionally, the Pimacihowin Project also registers their participants with Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship Program.
'Best Custom Home 1500-2200 sqft 2019' - SHRBA Building Excellence Awards
This client wanted to build a craftsmen style home that was cohesive with their neighborhood, and as energy efficient as possible given their East-West orientation.
This charming home was built to 0.69 air changes per hour (ACPH), which means it is well beyond the standard 2.5 ACPH for standard construction, and well beyond the Net Zero requirement of 1.5, and close to Passive House standard (0.6).
We designed this home with R40 exterior walls, an R80 attic, and double 2x4 wall construction to reduce thermal bridging. To construct the home, we specified FSC certified lumber, non-VOC paints, and water efficient plumbing fixtures, including drain water heat recovery.
Sustainable energy efficient housing – meets attractive architecture and design.
You really can have it all!
