Third Party Certification
In addition to its commitment to designing and constructing better performing buildings and homes, Minto chooses to have industry experts review the design and construction. By achieving industry accepted standards for superior quality and performance such as LEED and ENERGY STAR®, we ensure that we aren’t just building better homes, we are also building peace of mind.
LEED v4 Gold Certified
The Annex has proudly been certified as Alberta's 1st LEED v4 Gold Multi-family Midrise. LEED v4 is the latest framework and standard for the next generation of environmentally friendly structures and green buildings. It is the most comprehensive and transparent LEED version to date, resulting in significant reductions in GHG emissions connected with building construction and operations, emphasizing human health and well-being.
Homeowners at The Annex are eligible to receive a 15% CMHC Premium Refund.
ENERGY STAR® Appliance(s)
Save money and use up to 30% less energy with ENERGY STAR® appliances. More information on Minto and ENERGY STAR®.
Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV)
This piece of equipment acts as the lungs of your home. Today’s homes are built to be less drafty than in the past and while this means improved comfort, it also means less fresh air in your home, unless of course you have an HRV. The HRV introduces fresh air that gets distributed throughout the home and captures energy from exhaust air to reduce your heating and cooling costs. This provides superior indoor air quality and helps save you money.
High Performance Windows
ENERGY STAR® qualified windows are certified and verified to perform better than standard windows. These windows save money by reducing heating and cooling loads while also making the home more comfortable by providing a more consistent temperature throughout.
LED (Light-Emitting Diode) lights save you money by using less energy and lasting far longer than compact fluorescent lighting and halogen bulbs.
Whether you are sleeping or relaxing at home this thermostat adjusts to provide the most comfortable temperature based on your schedule, and when you are not at home the thermostat can be set back to save money on heating and cooling.
Ultra high-efficiency toilets
These specially designed toilets provide superior flushing performance and efficiency.
Water Efficient Faucets and Showerheads
