At Neo, our condo owners experience healthy, modern living by providing them with progressive BUILT GREEN® platinum design, energy performance 53% better than construction code, and a 54kW solar array providing energy to power common areas. The base of the design is an upgraded R25 building envelope, coupled with high-efficiency mechanical systems, decentralized ventilation systems with energy recovery, and water efficient fixtures to minimize resource consumption. The buildings go beyond high-efficiency, taking measures to preserve natural resources, reduce pollution, extend the life of materials, and provide community members with enhanced ventilation and indoor air quality.
Taking a holistic approach to building, there is a focus on comfort and liveability for community members, making healthy sustainable living available to people that might not otherwise be able to afford a premium home.
In addition to a ‘greener’ home, these design factors lead to a healthier respiratory and immune systems; a well-ventilated home removes allergens, so you have healthier air to breathe and less dust to clean. For those with allergies, benefits can be significant.
