Imagine communities where buildings produce zero emissions and are designed for human well-being.

The And-Co offices in Downtown Vancouver is the first WELL Platinum certified building in B.C.. The space centres around holistic well-being, from its biophilic elements to the availability of healthy food and open spaces.

Imagine a world where buildings generate no waste, foster human health and regenerate nature.

1550 Alberni Street in Vancouver stands as a testament to sustainability, showcasing FSC-certified wood products and a commitment to reducing construction waste. It is targetting LEED Gold certification.

This is the world Light House is building.

Through our certification services, policy advice, and cutting-edge research, Light House brings your buildings to life.

One company’s waste is another company’s resource.

BMEx (Building Material Exchange) serves as a bridge between businesses with surplus materials and those who can breathe new life into them. The initiative connects construction and manufacturing businesses in south and central Vancouver Island to form partnerships that save money while preventing valuable material from going to waste.

At Light House, we have a mission – to create regenerative built environments that nurture ecological and human health.
That means designing buildings and communities that reduce and reuse building materials, waste and carbon emissions, generate energy, support health and wellness, and restore ecosystems.
