10 Innovative Ways Impact Builders Surpasses BC’s Building Standards

As a custom home builder in the Okanagan, we believe that merely meeting the building standards in BC is not nearly enough when it comes to construction and your home. We are committed to delivering projects that not only meet but exceed British Columbia’s building requirements. We offer a dedication to quality, sustainability, and customer satisfaction. Here are ten ways we go above and beyond in every project we take on:

1. Enhanced Structural Integrity

While adhering to BC’s stringent seismic codes, we take additional steps to reinforce the structural integrity of any project we take on. These steps include using superior materials and advanced engineering techniques to ensure your home can withstand extreme weather conditions and anything life can throw at it.

2. Superior Energy Efficiency

We aim for higher energy performance beyond the BC Energy Step Code by incorporating cutting-edge insulation materials, high-efficiency HVAC systems, renewable energy sources, and using equipment that has decreased fuel consumption, significantly reducing the carbon footprint of each home we create. 

3. Indoor Air Quality Focus

We go beyond the minimum air quality standards both during and after the build. By using low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) products such as paint, sealants, and cleaners, we create a healthier living and working environment. By the time we have turned your oasis over to you, it will have enhanced ventilation systems and optimal air filtration systems installed for your ease and comfort.

4. Water Conservation Measures

In addition to adhering to water efficiency standards, we implement innovative water conservation technologies such as high-efficiency irrigation systems with rain and soil moisture sensors, premium plumbing taps, fixtures, and appliances to reduce water usage and impact on the local ecosystem.

5. Advanced Safety Features

Safety is paramount at Impact Builders, and in the Okanagan, the threat of fire is a very real plausibility; that is why our buildings feature advanced fire suppression systems in the advanced installation of wiring that has extensive testing, the use of class A fire-rated material, the use of fire-resistant materials in fireplaces and surroundings, enhanced emergency exit routes, and reinforced locks.

6. Eco-Friendly Materials

From foundation to rooftop, we prioritize the use of sustainable and eco-friendly building materials that exceed the standard requirements. By using infinitely recyclable aluminum materials, eco-flooring options, and wood from sustainable forestry practices. This commitment not only supports the environment but also ensures that our buildings are healthier for occupants and have a lower environmental impact.

7. Community Integration

Our projects go beyond physical construction; we take into consideration the surrounding area’s aesthetic as well as green space and use it to integrate and contribute to the surrounding community positively. By ensuring we plant native species and non-invasive plants, we play a part in creating an ecosystem that is integral for pollinators.

8. Waste Reduction Initiatives

 Our waste management efforts include:

  • Reducing landfill contributions – giving new life to materials that are still in good condition that were pulled from other job sites and projects, and reusing them elsewhere or donating them.
  • Recycling construction materials – separating materials that cannot be reused but that can be recycled from construction waste, such as concrete, metal, cardboard, carpeting, sinks, and much more.
  • Choosing the right materials—picking materials that have minimal packaging, using proper planning techniques, which ensures that we aren’t purchasing too little or too much for the project, and double-checking before purchasing that we are buying the right product, including colours and sizes. 

9. Enhanced Durability and Maintenance

Our commitment to using high-quality materials and construction methods extends the lifespan of our buildings, reduces maintenance costs, and ensures that they remain safe, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing for years to come.

10. Transparent Communication

Impact Builders focuses on the importance of our relationships. We value our relationships with our clients, trades, and suppliers to create a trusting and friendly environment. Impact Builders’ transparent communication approach ensures that all parties are informed and involved throughout the construction process, fostering trust and ensuring that your home doesn’t just meet your expectations but exceeds them.

We have worked with Impact Builders for as long as I can remember. They are exceptional people to work for. Loyal, trustworthy, just all around great company, especially the two borthers. We highly recommend working with Impact!
