If you ever doubted our message that
architectural/mechanical systems should focus on
conditioning the body instead of the building...this is the
human science behind comfort. Enjoy the message and please
bring along your industry friends and colleagues to these
New Pages Dedicated to:
Mechanical and Architectural Schematics .
These are the preview pages for a much larger project we are
working on. We invite you to comment and provide criticism
as we develop the pages over the next year. We have already
had some great feedback from those who discovered the pages
a few days ago. Rest assured we will incorporate all the
changes that make sense and will endeavor to revise
materials in due course. Remember this is big project and we
want you to participate and observe along the way.
When the project is done we'll offer opportunities to
manufacturers and contractors to sponsor the finished
project...or if you feel so motivated to get your banners up
early please let us know...its a year long project and year
long opportunity for a few brand names.

...of recent note:
"Last year, in a Readers' Digest poll to determine Canada
's most trusted professions, new home builders did not fare
well. Only eight per cent of respondents said new home
builders were “very trustworthy” and another 19 per cent
said they were “trustworthy”, for a combined score of 27 per
cent. That put builders ahead of trade unions (21 per cent),
car salespeople (10 per cent) and national politicians (nine
per cent), but below lawyers (29 per cent), journalists (31
per cent) and auto mechanics (33 per cent). The most
trustworthy professions are pharmacists, doctors and airline
pilots, the poll said.
A similar Readers Digest poll in New Zealand , however,
ranked builders as the ninth most trusted profession, just
below plumbers, and ahead of car salesmen, marketers,
journalists and psychologists." Excerpt from Volume 15,
issue 2 of Canadian Homes and Cottages – Spring 2005 ,
Boosting builders' public image
My comments...Members of the CAHB do a great job for many
worthy causes. Home builders are like any other
group...a few bad apples...anyways there is a growing list of builders who are
now offering radiant heating...visit
