Cascadia windows and doors improve building energy efficiency.
Cascadia Windows, based in Langley, B.C., was founded in 2008 by an owner group of RDH Consulting led by President Kevin Ganzert (President) and Mike Battistel (VP Operations). Cascadia specializes in expansive, large pane fiberglass custom windows which are more energy efficient then aluminum or vinyl windows, improving the energy footprint of a building by as much as 80%.
Cascadia has also developed a building envelope thermal spacer (the “Cascadia Clip’) which can as much as double the effective insulation of walls. The Company recently worked on the construction of Mountain Equipment Co-op’s Headquarters in Vancouver and the Bullitt Centre in Seattle which was part of the “Living Building Challenge” and is energy and water self-sufficient while meeting rigorous standards for green material usage.
The company has rapidly grown to become an industry leader in the green building sector driven by performance products, superior service and a team culture of innovation. All Cascadia products have earned the ENERGY STAR™ label in both Canada and the U.S and can help earn points toward a LEED green building designation. In recent years Cascadia has won the GLOBE Award for Environmental Excellence, the BC Export Award for international business was named as one of BC’s Top 10 most innovative companies by BC Business Magazine and one of Building Green’s Top 10 product companies of 2015.
According to the US Green Building Council, if half of new commercial buildings were built to use 50% less energy, it would save over 6 million metric tons of CO2 annually for the life of the buildings—the equivalent of taking more than 1 million cars off the road every year.
