The REEP house is located at 20 Mill Street in downtown Kitchener. The century brick home was bought and completely renovated to achieve a Platinum LEED rating, Canada’s first. The REEP house also achieved a 90% reduction in energy consumption. Enviroshake being made from 95% recycled materials, maintenance free, and lifetime guaranteed made it an easy choice to make when designing the home and selecting a roofing material.
Giving back to the community is always something that Enviroshake loves to do. This year Enviroshake was able to donate the roofing material to the Sustainable Building and Design Program at Fleming College. The program is a unique and innovative program where students get to work with new and innovative building products on a real building project. This years project is a 2200 square foot commercial building for Abbey Gardens Community and Trust in Haliburton Ontario.
