BONE Structure homes are designed and assembled using a patented steel construction technology inspired by the aerospace industry. Energy efficient, the BONE Structure homes have a soya based polyurethane thermal envelope, which gives them optimal insulation. No mold, no moisture and no premature deterioration of materials, the homes are beautiful, solid and contemporary, offering open-concept living spaces without load bearing walls. BONE Structure homes are also net-zero.

In addition to its BONE Structure, Paradigm also features Innotech windows and doors throughout the home. Engineered to deliver superior air, water and sound performance, the European-style windows and doors are well-suited to the BONE Structure wall system. Other sustainable technologies in the project include:

  • 10kw solar array on the roof
  • rainwater recycling and groundwater infiltration field
  • air to water radiant heat pumps
  • radiant heating and cooling
  • green roof (on the detached garage)
  • electric vehicle charging station
