We are on a journey to create an enduring positive impact on the environment and the architectural history of our generation.
History and Archeology Point the Way to Reduce Our Environmental Impact
Historical Innovations looked to ancient architectural megalithic stone structures to develop practical solutions to a sustainable future. We are a green tech startup with a long history of experience and exposure to historical restoration work and innovative new construction projects. Our founders have the technical expertise and proven leadership required to propel our venture forward and to set the conditions for increasing economies of scale as we seek to grow.
We Recognize a Dynamic Shift in Home Construction is Necessary
We believe that North America is facing a housing crisis. Not just in the supply of affordable homes, but also in overall quality and energy efficiency. Buildings today are often constructed to minimum building code standards and efficiency of the building envelope is rarely a consideration that home builders focus on when developing large scale housing projects. This short-sighted minimization of costs during the construction of most homes often results in buildings that are inherently inefficient and have poor energy performance. The end result is a building that has a significant and ongoing energy addiction, this results in damage to the environment, ongoing emission of CO2 due to energy demand, and a liability that will significantly impact long term operating costs as energy costs increase.
We Recognize the Barriers to Meaningful Change
Houses today are costing more than ever to develop and build, yet their quality and life expectancy are considered disposable when looking at the long term cost of ownership and their expected life cycle. The North American housing industry seems focused on short term solutions. Rarely are housing developments created to last generations. Quality is often in direct competition with aesthetics and energy efficiency is often not even a factor for consumers as few options exist to meet this necessarily sustainable revolution.
Historical Innovations is on a mission to change that.
We are Able to Meet Extreme Efficiency Standards Now
While most of the marketplace is arguing over an increase of 30% energy and insulation performance, we are ready to go all the way. Our building envelope is scalable in its energy efficiency capability and it can be created to have such extreme efficiency that these buildings will not require a conventional furnace even in the depths of a Canadian Winter.
Leadership, dedication and craftsmanship are intrinsic to our team. Our team members have a track record of proven industry experience and are setting the conditions to propel Historical Innovations to be a leader in the speculation built housing development market. We are ready to work directly with Developers and Builders to meet their project needs and rapidly move housing developments from vision and design onward to completion.
