QUEBEC CITY — Two Canadian firms have announced a partnership to introduce electric vehicle (EV) charging to new custom homes and communities including a new 28-home community under development in Clarington, Ont. east of Toronto.
Laval, Que.-based builder BONE Structure has patented, in 42 countries, a low-waste steel construction system it uses for the design, development and commercialization of residential and light commercial construction. On Sept. 27 BONE Structure unveiled its partnership with FLO Homes to incorporate that firm’s charging technology into future BONE Structure developments, a statement said.
BONE Structure’s building system includes a strategy for efficient onsite assembly of homes, said the statement. One in three of the firm’s customers drives or plans to drive an EV in the near future.
“BONE Structure is the ideal integrator for green building technologies. From solar roof panels to advanced mechanical systems, our clients opt for high-end sustainable technologies. Through our partnership with FLO, we can now integrate an EV station as part of our home designs, and offer a lifestyle product that is aligned with our vision for a clean and energy-efficient future,” said Marc Bovet, founder and CEO of BONE Structure, in the statement.
