Relocating? Consider the Peace Country!

The parkland region and municipalities surrounding the majestic Peace River are collectively known as the “Peace Country”. The Peace Country is a land of diverse and rugged beauty with plenty of economic opportunities. If you are considering potential communities for relocation, the Peace region should definitely be on your list! Spread out between Northeastern Alberta and Northwestern British Columbia, the Peace Country is a beautiful, unspoiled scenic region that makes up more than 240,000 kilometres, an area larger in mass than South Korea.

Modular Construction ~ Around the World

Modular construction is not only being adopted by local builders as their preferred construction method, it is gaining in popularity around the world. Globally, output from the industry is estimated to be more than $90 billion USD (2012 statistics), up from $60 billion USD in 2011. Asia-Pacific is the largest regional market, accounting for 49.3% of the total global market. [Source: Business Wire] Governments’ demand for increased energy efficiencies, coupled with commercial builders’ desire to reap a quicker return on their investment and a demand for better quality construction methods are all fueling this growth. There are some pretty cool modular construction projects taking place around the world. Here is a look at a few of our favourites:   Mini Sky City Chinese company, Broad Sustainable Building (BSB) built this 57-storey skyscraper within three weeks of onsite work time.

Why Buy Local?

The factory built housing industry supports over 7,700 local jobs in Alberta. In 2013, modular housing starts represented 14% of all housing starts in Canada. In addition, the manufactured building activity helps support 28,000 jobs across Canada and generates more than $5 billion in economic activity. [Source: 2013 Annual Report from the Canadian Manufactured Housing Institute. Read the report.] Did you know that Alberta accounted for half of all of the American built manufactured homes imported into Canada for three years straight? [Source: 2013 Annual Report from the Canadian Manufactured Housing Institute] When we buy products from abroad, it has a profound effect on the economy. Sadly, the years between 2003 - 2008 saw Canada lose 350,000 manufacturing jobs and this hasn’t improved much since. [Source: BuyCanadianFirst.com] Only a handful of Canadian factory builders compete internationally - buying imported homes from the United States hurts these suppliers. Buying locally supports our ...

Jandel Homes is Gearing Up to End MS!!!

The MS Bike Tour is a cause that Jandel Homes is pleased to support and an event that we are extremely proud to be a part of. Our team will be riding from Leduc to Camrose on June 13, so if you're traveling in the area, please cheer the "Hill's Angels", on! The number of Canadians living with multiple sclerosis increases every day – and will continue to rise until we find a cure. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It is a disease that affects the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). It causes symptoms such as extreme fatigue, lack of coordination, weakness, tingling, impaired sensation, vision problems, bladder problems and cognitive impairment.  In Canada, you have a greater chance of developing MS than anywhere else in the world. It is Canada’s disease. Take the pledge to fight MS.  The MS Bike Tour has been a critical part of the MS Society's fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Since 1989, cyclists of all ages and fitness levels have joined ...
