Onni is committed to sustainable design and building practices, as is evident in our developments across North America. Our working model is based upon the Three Pillars of Sustainability: environment, society and economy. Onni focuses on each pillar throughout the planning and construction phases to create developments that bring value to the homeowner, the community and the environment.
We believe that part of our corporate and social responsibility is to consider and protect the Earth. Providing energy efficient buildings, reducing our carbon footprint and positively impacting the economic well-being of our communities are tangible goals that we strive to meet on a daily basis.
For each project, Onni focuses on excellence in the following areas:
- Site selection
- Lowered energy consumption through design
- Material selection
- Construction quality control
- Development preparation for the future
Onni builds homes that increase quality of living. Our homes also encourage diversity not only by providing housing, but also through other equitable opportunities – such as live/work and mixed-used buildings – for every member of the community. We look for opportunities to offer adaptable and affordable housing choices in our developments.
Our developments have a positive economic impact on the neighbourhoods and communities where we build. This starts at the planning and development stage, where we look to hire locally. It continues through job creation and community amenity contributions, as well as in the use of local business services. Onni is dedicated to stimulating and maintaining growth within local economies.
