New Horizon is more than just a name. It symbolizes the dawn of a new way of building sustainably.

With nearly 30 years of experience in residential and commercial building, we believe that energy-sensitive, design-oriented communities help support healthy, thriving neighbourhoods.  We were one of the first developers in the Greater Hamilton Area to bring geothermal heating and cooling technology to mid-, high- and low-rise developments, and have since become one of the highest volume builders to use this sustainable solution in our developments.

We understand that the success of striving for energy conservation targets and high-performance building standards, such as LEED certification, depends on a collaborative workforce committed to a better outcome. Our team has these goals engrained in our culture, always striving to continue to innovate and improve at each new development.

History of Sustainability at NHDG

Since 1993, New Horizon Development Group (NHDG) has built over 30 communities – and counting – throughout the Greater Hamilton Area. The proud recipient of the inaugural “Builder of Canada’s Green Home of the Year” by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association, NHDG has always been mindful of its carbon footprint. The next generation of NHDG developments will achieve LEED certification and will continue to carry NHDG forward as the leader in geothermal energy within mixed-use developments in the Greater Golden Horseshoe.



  • Silt fences were placed around the site during construction to reduce soilerosion and waterway sedimentation pollution.
  • Close proximity (within ½ mile) to at least 10 public services and restaurants promotes walkability and encourages daily physical activity.
  • Bicycle storage, outdoor bike racks, and parking spots with electric vehicle charging station encourage the use of alternative transportation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


  • Water savings for the building is over 30%. High-efficiency plumbing fixtures are used in the building.
  • Irrigation system and indoor plumbing fixtures are metered to track water consumption for additional water savings.


  • Commissioning of building energy systems are performed to verify that they are installed, calibrated and performed according to the owner’s project requirements and designers’ specifications.
  • HVAC equipment do not contain any Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)‐based refrigerants, thus reducing stratospheric ozone depletion.
  • Suites and common areas feature energy efficient LED lighting with increased lifespan to ensure long-term performance.
  • Ground Source (Geothermal) Heat Pump is utilized to heat and cool the building, thus reducing overall energy consumption.
  • In-suite energy recovery ventilator recovers energy from exhaust air.


  • Dedicated recycling area for storage and collection of recyclables and a tri-sorter allow residents to easily recycle glass, plastic, metal, paper and cardboard, etc.
  • Use of materials from regional sources and materials having recycled content reduce transportation costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Over 75% of construction waste was diverted from landfills, encouraging reuse of materials in various end-markets.


  • All adhesives and sealants, paints and coatings, carpet, composite wood, and laminate adhesives are made with low-emitting materials that give off little or no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) to Improve indoor air quality.
  • High efficiency filters are provided on each of the mechanical systems to ensure better indoor air quality for the residents.
  • Thermostats and lighting control devices are available to occupants and groups in multi‐occupant spaces, which allow individuals to manage their own thermal comfort.
