2011 Build Green Award Winner!
      Mapleton Homes is thrilled to announce that we are the recipient of the 2011 Try Recycling Build Green Award, presented through the London Home Builders Association at the ACE Awards. This award recognizes the audited accountability and outstanding efforts by individual companies. The Awards capture not only the industry wide initiatives and efforts of the companies but also the individual programs and activities that are incorporated into daily activities and environmental planning.

    Mapleton Homes Ltd. is a certified ENERGY-STAR® builder and is committed to reducing its carbon footprint throughout the entire construction process, starting with using energy-efficient building materials in every single house. Mapleton also makes a conscious effort to reduce the amount of construction waste on site by recycling construction materials such as lumber, shingles, cardboard, and much more. An on-site Waste Audit is conducted for each project to determine the amount of waste generated by a project, as well as to investigate the underlying reasons for waste generation and the factors which contribute to the waste. This allows for the preparation of a waste reduction plan, leading to an overall reduction in the company’s excess wastage.
