As a market leader in housing design for more than 20 years, Ankrom Moisan knows how to create vibrant communities where people thrive. We draw on our deep experience creating many types of projects—not just other residential buildings, but also hospitality, healthcare, and community centers. Through careful integration of Passive House strategies, we are able to create durable and affordable communities that mitigate outdoor noise, have superior indoor air quality and balanced thermal comfort, and reduce energy bills by up to 90%. Through this fusion of knowledge, we are able to create places that improve human health, reduce energy consumption, and empower communities.
