Green is the New Luxury

It’s Not a Trend, it’s the Future.

Landmark homes leads the industry with the most sustainable and environmentally friendly building practices. We have made and environmental commitment to initiate sustainable building practices in North America to benefit future generations. In good faith, Landmark Homes has recognized critical global issues and pursued building techniques to significantly reduce our carbon footprint and its impact on natural resources.

We Leave the Trees Standing.

Every Element, Stunningly Sustainable.

We have made the environmentally cautious decision to build our homes with engineered lumber instead of traditional lumber to help preserve our forests.

Engineered lumber, AKA Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) is manufactured lumber made with a mix of underutilized smaller scraps of woods and wood fibres that would otherwise be considered unusable in the building world. This material allows us to build stronger homes, without the common defects in traditional lumber while saving our forests that are essential to the ecosystem, the atmosphere, and critical for producing clean air.

Extraordinarily Effective Construction

80% Lessened Carbon Footprint

In conjunction with the low environmental impacts of engineered lumber, we build all our new home components in a state-of-the-art centralized framing facility called ACQBuilt to further eliminate our carbon footprint. This facility allows us to reduce greenhouse gases released into our atmosphere by up to 80%, saving up to 35 trips to & from site on average per house, or 1400 kilometres per vehicle to build a single home.

On a bigger scale, if we applied this innovative construction method to the 36,000 homes built in Alberta each year, we could reduce up to 50 million kilometres of drive time and eliminate the unnecessary amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into our atmosphere just through centralized framing alone.

Sustainably Sourced Raw Materials

Over 50% Less Waste

Have you ever driven past a new home job site and seen full trash bins of excess building material? All of this excess waste is a result of inaccurate measurements, unused lumber, and other raw building materials. We build differently, to prevent wasted materials through precision, accuracy and efficiency at ACQbuilt. Through automated precision measurements and cuts, this allows us to maximize yield, and ultimately reduces over 50% wasted material per home in comparison to traditional stick building methods.

Maximized Efficiency

For a Luxurious Lifestyle

Your home works all day & night, to make you comfortable. A Landmark Home will make you comfortable, without overworking or wasting energy. Every element in a Landmark Home is designed for energy efficiency, sustainability, and ultimately a luxurious lifestyle for our homeowners. A green home means low utility bills and healthier indoor air to maximize your everyday living.
