Building Materials

A strong structure and environmentally-friendly materials give each Hive Modular home longevity...

  • FSC certified wood (standard for all Canadian projects)

  • Dual pane, Low E, argon filled windows

  • Highly efficient building envelope with spray-in foam insulations (which are more effective than fiberglass batting and minimizes mold/ reduced air infiltration). Past projects have included staggered stud walls with maximum insulation, achieving a R-36 wall

  • PEX tubing is resistant to scale, chlorine, and corrosion and its installation does not involve lead-based solder like conventional plumbing systems. It also does not transfer heat as easily as copper systems, resulting in energy savings

  • Locally sourced materials are used whenever possible
