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. Nine of these projects are now operational residences, with a further three under construction and four in the planning stage. Further to this initiative, Verve has been implementing and assessing the viability of other 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, and 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.
