Energy Report: Savings By Design
Remington Homes leads the industry in energy efficiency at Thornhill Valley Luna Towns
Remington Homes has been in the business of planning, designing and building vibrant, outstanding communities in the GTA for nearly 30 years. It recognizes that sustainability must be at the heart of all of its projects, from conception through creation.
This is why Remington is leading the industry in its commitment to implementing innovative technologies and providing environmentally superior energy efficiency features for its valued homeowners.
Remington Homes balances design and construction with environmentally friendly considerations to create greener living environments. Its latest project, the Thornhill Valley Luna Towns located at the northeast corner of Dufferin Street and Rutherford Road, showcases the process Remington undertakes to ensure the best outcomes.
For Luna Towns, Remington has solicited the support of Enbridge Gas Distribution through its market transformation program Savings by Design. This green building initiative encourages energy-efficient building design and construction practices, promoting the efficient use of energy by offering upfront design assistance, further supported by financial incentives based on tested performance.
Luna is a collection of townhomes that establishes a new benchmark for luxury in this much-sought-after community. Set amongst an established neighborhood of detached homes, shopping and community facilities, this collection of contemporary towns is a departure from the ordinary.
The sleek and cutting-edge geometric design focuses on the use of smooth, clean lines. Modular smooth brick, elegant smooth stone and contemporary window and balcony treatments give these townhomes instant curb appeal while maintaining a tone that is in harmony with the established neighbourhoods that surround the site.
In Luna, award-winning architectural firm RN Designs successfully integrates architectural excellence and energy efficiency. With an eye to resource efficiency and responsibility for the environment, this master-planned community demonstrates the best that can be achieved by taking a holistic approach to community design: one that meets the needs of the people using it while balancing architectural elegance with sustainability.
Through its participation in the Savings by Design program, Remington Homes is constructing energy-efficient, healthy and sustainable homes that exceed building code requirements by at least 25 per cent. Remington is proud to take part in a program that promotes environmental stewardship through reduced greenhouse gas emissions, conservation of natural resources, habitat remediation and environmental education.
