Homes are like cars. The newer the model, the more reliable it is. New homes cost less to run, have more safety features, include a warranty and can be customized to suit your needs.

These are the reasons why purchasing a NEW home is just better all round.
Energy Efficient. Compared to older homes, new builds are light years ahead when it comes to saving money on utilities. We show you how we build and what’s in your wall cavities to keep you warm.
New Technologies. Many advances in sustainable construction and the use of recycled materials help make your new home an environmentally friendly home.
Safety Features. New builds pass rigorous inspections on core components such as structure, electrical and heating to give you and your family peace of mind.
Built to Your Specification. There’s no need to demolish walls in a new home to create open plan living – it comes with the territory. Your new home is entirely yours, and that includes your own taste in décor.

Avalon Master Builder offers a variety of new homes and styles throughout the city. You’ll find 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes with an option to develop the basement with two more bedrooms at ZEN Redstone (view floorplans here.) At ZEN Urban District you can get into a 2 or 3 bedroom, 2-storey townhome

Healthcare workers have a difficult job to do – and we all appreciate their work and sacrifice. So much so, that Avalon would like to demonstrate how much you are truly valued by giving all AHS workers a price break on a ZEN home at any ZEN community.

Avalon Master Builder - Why We Love Marda Loop

Marda Loop was once located on the edge of the city. Today, it’s an eclectic inner-city neighbourhood and a shopper’s paradise.

Located on 33rd and 34th avenues, Marda Loop is a thriving outdoor shopping and dining district, home to a variety of distinct stores and restaurants, all within walking distance of each other. The trendy neighbourhood gets its name from the now closed Marda Theatre, which was located on the corner of the same intersection of the “Loop” streetcar route.

Marda Loop is home to more than 100 diverse businesses including cafes, gourmet coffee shops like the ever-popular Phil & Sebastian’s, multicultural restaurants including Rasoi Kitchen for cutting-edge Indian, Globefish Sushi and Izakaya for trendy Japanese, Craft Beer, Fergus & Bix plus Original Joe’s for upscale pub. The area also includes upmarket spas, clothing and jewelry shops, a book store, scuba centre and multiple specialty pet shops for your furry friends.

Every year on the second Sunday in August, the streets of Marda Loop come alive with the New Orleans-themed Marda Gras Street Festival. With the streets decorated like Marda Gras, this is a free public event for anyone to experience the culture and cuisine of New Orleans, in downtown Calgary. The festival includes street performers and entertainment for all ages.

This collection of trendy coffee shops and eateries attract a youthful influence, while surrounding neighbourhoods like Garrison Woods and Upper Mount Royal, along with Marda Loop’s rich history, add a feeling of maturity.

With its upscale diversity, it all comes together nicely and creates a fun environment where there’s something for everyone.

Marda Loop offers so much, that the business council have put together a Business Directory website http://www.mardaloopbrz.ca/ so both locals and visitors can easily find what they’re looking for.

Avalon Master Builder Receives SAIT’s President’s Partnership Award

Avalon_Small

Avalon Master Builder is proud to be the recipient of the SAIT Polytechnic President’s Partnership Award this year. The award is given to companies who have a long-term commitment with SAIT, are dedicated to its vision and to the Calgary community.

Avalon is a leader in Alberta’s home-building industry and has been a long-term partner with SAIT in the area of green building technology. The partnership has resulted in improvements in new home construction while involving students in leading-edge environmental construction projects. Avalon is always exploring and innovating with new projects in energy efficiency and sustainable building practices.

When someone purchases an Avalon home they will save money on energy bills, have a draft-free home with no “cold spots”, improved interior air quality and reduced future maintenance costs. This will not only save money, time and effort but it will improve the health of those living in this masterfully crafted home.

A net-zero house generates as much or more energy than it consumes. This includes the energy used to heat the home, hot water, lights, appliances and any other daily living needs. In order to do this, Avalon uses state of the art energy efficient construction techniques and equipment with renewable energy resources.

Avalon is grateful to be recognized for its efforts to make a difference in the community and wants to thank SAIT for making such a great partner. Avalon has three partners that are SAIT alumni so we will continue to say thanks by giving back to SAIT, and other important community organizations.
