Blue Valley Building is breaking new ground with sustainable construction.

Blue Valley Building Corporation (BVB) is setting a new standard in building greener, healthier homes for individuals and families as well as municipalities tackling the growing affordable housing crisis.

Using their novel insulated concrete wall foundation system and insulated structural wall panels, BVB-built homes are designed and engineered to be affordable and provide healthier living environments, superior comfort, quality, durability and energy efficiency.

Compared to traditional stick-built homes, the BVB system cuts build lead times by 30 per cent, reduces waste to landfill by up to one-third, lowers utility costs for homeowners by 30 to 60% and dramatically reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Components are built in Blue Valley’s factories in Guelph and Barrie, then assembled on-site for faster, easier, safer and more cost-effective homebuilding.

Attainable today, a BVB-built home will remain affordable and sustainable to own and operate for generations to come. Blue Valley invites private and public partners to work creating sustainable, affordable housing solutions for municipalities and First Nations.
