Black Creek Developments is leading the way in commercial development in Alberta utilizing Passive House, an ultra energy efficient German engineering technology.
Many developers shyed away at the prospect of building something out of the ordinary. Black Creek Developments jumped at the chance to be part of history in the making of the first ever Passive House car dealership. It involves more work: seeking out green materials that more often than not had to be shipped over seas from Germany, and adhereing to Passive House code that many did not want to take the time to learn.
With changing norms and the fear of the unknown, many people cling to past ideals. But the world doesn't advance unless someone blazes a new trail. We see it time and time again where the old way fights the new in a desperate attempt for survival, but the old will always die out in the end.
Black Creek Developments is proud to be one of the brave to run towards change, not run from it. We are proud to be a part of progress and innovation and embrace it, not fight it.
We are not afraid to go where others will not.
While there is still plenty of exciting work to be done ahead of us, we can't be more proud of how our Passive House project has been coming together and for the decision on Scott Subuaru's behalf to adopt this unprecedented way to build their car dealership.
The concrete slab being poured is a major milestone, covering the heavy duty insulation beneath.
Utilizing Passive House design, this building is ultra energy efficient. Thick foam insulation and optimum air ventilation makes this car dealership the first of it’s kind in North America and Black Creek Developments Inc. is proud to be the developer in this project.
It requires little energy to heat and cool, even in Alberta’s extreme climate. Involving the most sophisticated technology available for efficiency.
Over head doors have been installed.
