Each will be "work-in progress", with changes and improvements as time and resources allow.

2.002) This will allow visitors to get much more information than several tours combined and allow you to study the information at your own schedule. They will allow far away visitors to our web site to go on a tour in picture format and text, without travelling to Calgary. This will also allow students from junior, high, and vocational schools, colleges, and universities (architecture schools, environmental programs) to study some of the "real world" constraints and opportunities involved in environmental buildings. Our professional work is not academic or hypothetical. Almost all of our designs have been built.

2.003) CD-ROMs that are available for purchase are indicated when ready. Watch the list for latest additions. Not one of them will provide all the answers or be perfect. They can be purchased before or after your tour as a useful souvenir, or ordered by e-mail, when they become available. If you think this is a good idea, please let us know. If you have any preference, or suggestion, or would like to work on such a project as a volunteer, please let one of the partners know.

Grand Opening of the Alberta Sustainable Home Office3.400) ABSTRACT of the Alberta Sustainable Home/Office:
3.401) This project was completed in early 1994, as the 5th demonstration project designed and/or built by Jorg ostrowski and his team during the last 30 years. About 10,000 students from as far away as Main U.S., and corporations from as far away as Japan, have toured this building. In addition, another 60,000 people from around the world have toured this facility. This project has been covered in about 70 media events from articles, TV documentaries, conference papers and case studies.

3.402) This 3 bedroom 1820 sq. ft. demonstration home/office is a sustainable, autonomous and an energy-credit prototype for cold climates and the 21st century to exemplify the company's mandate: environmental stewardship, occupant health, resource conservation, appropriate technology, alternative energy, and self-sufficiency. All projects are dedicated to healthy materials, green buildings, energy independence, for a brighter future, safer planet, greater freedom and a sustainable economy.

Japanese tour group at the Alberta Sustainable Home Office3.403) This project integrates the best of yesterday, the reality of today and the trends of tomorrow. Its purpose is to provide an inventory of environmental choices, concepts, features, products, transportation and lifestyle options for educators, entrepreneurs, professionals, civil servants and the general public. All concepts, features and products are appropriate for either or both new or recofit (ecological retrofit) projects, including sustainable homes, offices, commercial buildings, neighbourhoods, communities, subdivisions, and industrial parks.

3.404) For further information on this and other projects please see our evolving Portfolio web site.

4.300) BENEFITS:
4.301) If a "picture is worth a thousand words", then a "tour is worth a thousand pictures". Compared to "virtual reality", a private and dedicated "real world" tour in 3-D (dimensions) and living colour allows the following benefits from on-site opportunities and interaction not available in books, web sites, CD-ROMs or at any other location in Canada, for each of the following 3 groups:
Tours are not private consulting, which can be scheduled before or after the tours.

A) BUSINESSES, CORPORATIONS, LOBBY GROUPS: for leadership in a greener economy
For business people, executive directors, VPs, shareholders, managers and promoters, this is a "win win" opportunity to strengthen: market strategies, penetrations, leverage, linkages, dividends, market share and strategic alliances. You may be able to reconsider how sustainable development could influence your marketplace and bottom line. In many cases the tour has helped staff on a personal level. The tours may also give you insights into: emerging trends, public pressure, winds of change, new legislation, coming standards, economic incentives. In addition the tour may also help to launch a few of the following corporate actions, benefits or initiatives listed below:
4.302) expand your horizons
4.303) (re)define new priorities
4.304) understand the context
4.305) probe the present
4.306) gain market leverage
4.307) reward staff creativity
4.308) take the lead
4.309) set the benchmark
4.310) show corporate leadership
4.311) utilize tax incentives
4.312) enlighten your board
4.313) expand "value added" content
4.314) judge performance & potential
4.315) see green products in action
4.316) touch healthy materials in use
4.317) make strategic plans & matchmaking
4.318) develop a team approach
4.319) beware of regulatory changes
4.320) increase the threshold
4.321) realize new PR opportunities
4.322) increase dividends & ratings
4.323) gather market intelligence
4.324) expand your product line
4.325) upgrade your reception area
4.326) add to your library
4.327) consider constraints
4.328) develop new policies
4.329) enhance market share
4.330) lead the competition
4.331) win new customers,
4.332) diversify
4.333) consider new market exports
4.334) increase your information portal

B) MUNICIPALITIES, GOVERNMENT, SOCIETIES & NGOs: to establish a sustainable and public common ground
For civil servants, department heads, civic officials, and other public administrators, a tour of an actual project may offer you a few of the following "food for thought" and implementation:
4.335) constructive policies
4.336) useful incentives
4.337) proactive legislation
4.338) business incentives
4.342) professional upgrade
4.339) reduce costs
4.340) reduced liabilities
4.341) better insight & understanding
4.343) missed opportunities
4.344) an integrated approach
4.345) export of green clean energy
4.346) retrofit opportunities & facilities
4.347) optimize energy performance
4.348) optimize environmental performance
4.349) show leadership
Municipalities should join PCC, expand recycling programs, harness new forms of energy, increase dirty taxes, reduce green taxes, stop expanding the costly grid, and transfer infrastructure costs to those who demand them. We can no longer afford to make the same mistakes. Tax payers money can no longer subsidize sunset industries in a a sunrise era. Stewardship of public resources demands economic incentives, instead of arbitrary rebates which have failed in the past. Go far beyond the LEEDS limitations.


For teachers, instructors, professors, students, administrators, conference organizers and others in the academic world, a tour through a "real world" project may make a world of difference to a a textbook case study, lesson plan, research project or field trip, as you walk into a resource centre, with lots of food for thought, things to touch and friendly spaces to experience. Students and teachers may be able to engage in a few of the following worthy pursuits coming out of the tour:
4.350) see an inventory of ideas
4.351) dialogue with guides
4.352) exchange information
4.353) ask questions
4.354) walk into the context

4.400) IDEAS & STRATEGIES: for possible consideration:
4.401) economic diversification
4.402) lower insurance costs and risks
4.403) energy independence
4.404) cost-effective solutions
4.405) material options
4.406) conserver
4.407) business opportunities
4.408) career changes lifestyle
4.409) political freedom all incorporated into 1 integrated working model, in a 3-dimensional non-academic "real world" resource centre. This inventory and list of ideas could apply to commercial, educational, institutional, municipal and residential projects, both new construction and retrofit.

4.501) This project addresses a few of the practical solutions now available to protect and reduce the risk to personal/business security, life and property against manmade ravages of our time. These are only the signals of far greater crisis that will motivate people, civil servants and businesses into action, whether they like it or not. The wisdom of a society is in its ability to plan wisely, taking only their fair share and safeguarding a future worthy of inheriting.
4.502) spiralling utility costs (water, natural gas, electricity)

5.110) To honour the City's decentralization policy, to offer fresh clean air, blue skies and mountain views of suburbia to busy executives on retreat, or to allow visiting delegations a meeting space before or after a tour, this firm can to provide "on-site" and "in-context" meeting space. Small meetings (up to 12 people) can easily be accommodated in a unique and comfortable, healthy and ultra modern setting with healthy food service, available as an option upon request. Surroundings are quiet, safe and relaxing, compared to the hustle and bustle of downtown hotels. During the day, there is plenty of natural full-spectrum lighting and views to the outdoors, with immediate access to backyard deck and adjacent park. The setting is peaceful and quiet. No flight zones overhead. Fresh air from the country (no industry).
