Make your home a Healthy Home

As a high performance builder our focus is beauty, sustainability, resilience, comfort, and performance. We collaborate with clients and architects to create structures that promise a lifespan measured in generations. While modern building science powers our high performance building approach, our philosophy is inspired by craft building:

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives, the cumulative experience of many masters of craftsmanship. Quality also marks the search for an ideal after necessity has been satisfied and mere usefulness achieved.”
John Ruskin, 1819-1900

For HMC, building durability is the most fundamental definition of sustainability and the best path to 21st Century buildings.

Science and Physics

Our systems-based understanding of how buildings work enables us to deliver projects with resilience and energy efficiency, reducing building energy consumption for heating and cooling by as much as 90%: a big win for the client and the planet.


For a building to sustain, its occupants must value it. We use high performance building to create thoughtful spaces, infused with healthy air, steady and even thermal comfort, and strong connections between inside life and outside life. Our advanced building knowledge coupled with our in-the-dirt practical experience allow us to give architects and clients the freedom to make the many design decisions they need without compromising building performance.
