Kudos to our client, Adera! They have recently received the award for the Built Green BC Builder of the Year. This is the second consecutive year that Adera has one this award and we’re proud to have one of our clients be so successful in their sustainability initiatives.
“Sustainability has been a very important focus for Adera for more than 8 years,” says Eric Andreason, vice president of sales and marketing for Adera Development Corporation. “The people in our team actively participate in working with other groups and Eco-consultants to stay abreast of green technology in order to meet people's housing needs and desires. Consumers are demanding sustainable living and energy-efficient homes for its significant benefits: direct financial saving, personal benefits by reducing their carbon footprint and the social benefit of living green for the greater good.”
Green is the new black. So what does that mean? State-of-the-art features made from natural materials or recycled content, chosen to last longer, and designed with a reduced carbon-footprint in mind. What else? High efficiency appliances that minimize energy and water consumption, and also reduce waste production. This is a motto that Adera stands by and have maintained for over 40 years. They have built a world-class portfolio that includes the development of more than 8,000 homes, from distinguished residences at UBC, to condos and town-homes spread throughout the Lower Mainland.
Currently they have an extensive list of projects both coming soon and currently selling. These include Ultimate Green, Zen and Spirit which were the Adera projects that were recognized as part of the award. They are all innovative developments from Adera that consider green building practices, from livability for homeowners to the stunning designs that incorporate the latest innovations in sustainable building and West Coast architecture.
