We are and ethical development company, inspired by sustainability, durability and zero energy innovation. This is our niche.

As Western Canada’s premier zero energy developer, we understand the need to change how we live, travel and consume. We recognize that NOW is the time to start on the path towards zero energy living in our personal lives, in our businesses and community developments. We believe everyone has a role in environmental stewardship, and zero energy living is the best way to advocate for a social and economical shift towards real sustainability.

& Steel


Concrete and Steel construction can last centuries compared to wood frame buildings. Steel and concrete constructed buildings require minimal lifetime structural maintenance, and are generally renovated and repurposed several times over, with an unlimited life span in our life time.

zero energy living is simply better
By definition, zero-energy home is a building with zero net energy consumption, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on location. A zero energy home combines advanced engineering
and superior building systems with energy efficiency, on-site solar panels and geothermal technology to produce a better home. It is also these innovations that make zero energy homes inherently more durable, comfortable, quiet, sustainable and most importantly, affordable.

simple zero energy living strategies
The best way to advocate, is to move towards the path of zero energy living. Wether you live in a standard, near-zero, net zero or zero home or condo, there are simple, low cost, steps you can take to significantly reduce your energy use. If you live in a zero energy home and your energy use is average, you will probably have zero net energy expenditure.If your energy consumption is below average, it may become a positive energy home.  
However, If your energy expenditure is above average, you may no longer be a zero energy home. With a few small changes in habits and strategies can ensure that your home remains a zero energy home in practice. These particular habits and strategies may even help move your home towards positive energy production, allowing you to save energy for other uses or “sell” energy back to the grid.

NICHE defines sustainability as a goal for human-ecosystem equilibrium and the endurance of systems and processes. We believe sustainable development refers to the holistic approach and temporal processes that lead us to the end point of sustainability, ethical development and ethical consumerism.


Our zero energy community brings like minded people and businesses together to demonstrate, advocate and support each other on the pathway to zero energy living and carbon free solutions. These are the innovators and risk takers making the pathway to zero energy living possible.
