Our clients have one thing in common: they demand the very best for their projects. Dan Sawatzky at Imagination Corporation, a self-described storyteller extraordinaire and proud grampa, is no exception.
Dan is currently building his dream home in Chilliwack, British Columbia and documenting every step on his blog. And for the record, this isn't your ordinary home building project. It encompasses more than high-performance products and technologies, it's the story of creative heart with an exceptional vision to build a home like no other.

On Thursday, January 19th the British Columbia Building Envelope Council (BCBEC) and the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO), a branch of BC Housing, is hosting a half-day workshop on window installation.
"The workshop will focus on building enclosure and window installation requirements for thermal performance in new and retrofit buildings. Industry leaders will provide insights into key issues including:
- window to wall interface
- insulation strategies
- thermal and condensation performance of windows
- effectiveness in managing rainwater
- and building code, installation and energy efficiency standards."
Innotech's Director of Technology, Al Jaugelis, is part of the industry panel that will conclude the workshop with a discussion and closing remarks.
The Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) recently released a Builder Insight bulletin prepared by RDH Building Engineering Ltd.
Builder Insight 9, entitled Fenestration Energy Performance: A Roadmap for Understanding Requirements for Residential Buildings in British Columbia, clarifies the energy performance requirements for windows, glazed doors and skylights used in residential buildings. It also provides a roadmap for compliance.

One unit remains in this beautiful lake front condo in the Okanagan!
Recently featured in Okanagan Home Magazine, 402 Lakeshore Drive is a luxurious four-unit condominium located on the shores of Okanagan Lake in Penticton, BC. The two-storey building features a total of 7,268 square feet with two units on each storey ranging in size from 1,391 to 2,100 square feet. All four units feature high-quality construction, open concept floor plans and high-end finishing.
Located across from public beaches, sound control and security were a priority. “It was important that we didn’t compromise comfort for aesthetics,” says Tony Giroux at Wesplan Building Design. “We wanted large openings to take advantage of the views and maximize natural light, but we also wanted our homeowners to be comfortable and safe.”
The Shire of Spring Willow is a new residential development by Norcan Development Corporation in Southwest Calgary. Featuring large lots and custom built homes, the new community is designed for discerning homeowners who seek urban living in a peaceful setting.

The builder, N of 1 Custom Home Projects, specified Innotech products for their proven durability, superior energy efficiency and easy to use operation. Every home has different colours, from traditional white, bold charcoal black, to rich mahogany wood foil, as well as different shapes, sizes and grid patterns.
