Design Concepts and Building Systems
New properties will benefit from experiences to date and be developed to meet current and future demands. The next evolution of projects will see hotel-style amenities such as wellness centres, multiple dining experiences, and electronic suite entry systems. Continuum care residences will include specialized assisted living and memory care suites and amenities.

In addition to these design initiatives, Verve has been implementing and assessing the viability of green technologies which drive GHG reduction. These initiatives include wastewater recovery systems, green roofs, rainwater harvesting, solar thermal, building integrated solar, photovoltaic solar, as well as assessing the sustainability and carbon footprint of construction materials.

Air quality is another important element to our building designs. We are now utilizing individual energy recovery ventilators (ERV’s) in each suite to maximize fresh air changes for our residents. This industry-leading approach to the design of our buildings significantly increases the cost of developing new residences, however it aligns with our vision of being resident-centric.
Geothermal Heating
and Cooling
We pride ourselves on being an industry leader in the implementation of green building technologies. For the last fifteen years, Verve Senior Living has been building projects which use geothermal heating and cooling systems. Ten of these projects are now operational residences with an additional five in the construction and planning stage.
