Building Design

We develop with resource conservation and waste reduction as priority. Energy and water efficiency is factored into the design of our communities, right from the planning stages.

Some of the consumption conservation initiatives we consider for implementation include:

State of the art Heating and Cooling Systems Thermostat with person adjusting temperature
Enhancing insulation to save on heating and cooling costs Apartment insulation
Responsible stormwater management Responsible waste and storm water management
EV charging stations EV charging station
Water and/or air heat recovery systems Water and air heat recovery system pannels
Solar photovoltaic systems installed to offset consumption Solar photocoltaic rooftop system
Stainless steel Energy Star appliances: refrigerators, ranges, washers, dryers, and dishwashers Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and high-end finishes means real luxury
High-efficiency lighting fixtures High efficiency light fixtures
High performance, low-flow, water fixtures spacious bathrooms with high-end finishes and full bathtub and shower
Net Metering and Onsite Energy Storage Net metering panels

Sustainable Growth

Infill opportunities are paramount to smart growth in Canada. The use of existing infrastructure (transportation, water/sewer, electricity, and open space) and urban renewal through the redevelopment of underutilized urban sites enhances communities and preserves the environment. We are a
a proud proponent of intensification over sprawl in our selection of development properties.

Our practices include brownfeld remediation, where contaminated sites are reclaimed and transformed into clean and vibrant communities, tree
replanting initiatives, and environmental protection of surrounding land uses.

SkyDev always thinks of the details in our community ammenities

Community Amenities

We tailor the amenities in our developments to enhance community well-being and enjoyment.

We include details catered to resident dreams in a community through public engagement: indoor/outdoor lounges and terraces, playgrounds, dog runs, ftness centres, yoga studios, multi-purpose outdoor courts, barbeques, community gardens, and rooftop honey are among some of the features being provided.

Transportation Choices

We design and develop our communities to encourage the use of sustainable transit. It starts as early as the planning stages: when choosing where to develop, we largely factor in proximity to transit options. Our communities include electric vehicle (EV) charging stations capable of increasing with demand overtime to promote more environmentally friendly transportation options. Consideration of proximity to nearby public transportation, allowing residents and occupants to travel around town quickly and effortlessly. Large, secure bicycle/locker storage rooms to facilitate bike commuting and enjoyment.
