Authentech Homes is the chosen builder for The Wilden Living Lab Project, this  initiative will see two homes built in Kelowna’s Wilden subdivision on lots made available by the Blenk Development Corporation. One home will be built to current building code standards. The other will incorporate additional sustainable building technologies.

AuthenTech Homes will identify the additional technologies and undertake construction in cooperation with Okanagan College’s Construction Management Program. Researchers from UBC Okanagan’s School of Engineering will then monitor and compare the energy use of both homes over the next three years and report their findings.

The result — ­real-world data that shows prospective homebuilders and homebuyers what can be built in the Okanagan.
