4610 Caulfield Dr, West Vancouver
This home is nestled in beautiful Caulfeild. The unusual spelling of “Caulfeild “ comes from Francis Caulfeild , a well-to-do englishman who fell in love with the area. He went onto develop an English-style village that followed the contours of the winding landscape. Caulfeild was one of the first settlements in West Vancouver. A few minute walk brings you to the waterfront of Caulfeild Cove where you can enjoy the western hemlocks that line the coast, while looking at the ocean views towards Kitsalano, Point Grey and surrounding areas. Children LOVE this area for safe neighbourhood play, where block watch is present and cars are few.

Upward Construction Earns Innovation Points on Waste Management
In West Vancouver, hillsides are made of solid rock, so excavation is at times a necessary task for builders that can be both environmentally and financially taxing. On a recent project, Upward Construction tried something new that would result in a substantial reduction in fossil fuels and heavy trucks on the road—along with savings. They would successfully submit this practice for Innovation Points through the BUILT GREEN® home certification program.
With these points, Built Green Canada encourages innovative sustainable building practices above and beyond what is contained within its programs—its in part, what keeps our programs progressive, as we recognize that those on the ground doing the work are often the ones learning and finding new ways of doing things. Based on the significance, improvement, and measurability of the innovative practice, the organization’s Technical Standards Committee considers it for points that go towards the project’s certification level. Submissions may also be considered for adoption into the following year’s program checklist.
Parade of Homes: Piccadilly North, West Vancouver
Upward Construction offers custom homes, multi-family homes, and renovations in North Vancouver, West Vancouver, and Vancouver Proper. For a project like this one in West Van, they have to blast into the hillside, and then large pieces of rock would typically be hauled to a dump site 50 km away (and up to 120 km away); however, this time around, Upward contracted an excavation company that had acquired new rock crushing technology making the trucks unnecessary.
The device is attached to the arm of the excavator and allows them to crush large pieces of rock into gravel right on the job site—switching between a shovel, hammer, and crusher, and requiring just one crew member. There was concern that a crusher onsite might raise issues around noise control; however, this was managed effectively, and there were no complaints from the district, nor neighbours.
While necessary, these dump trucks are loud and contribute to air pollution. By employing the crusher on the construction site, Upward Construction was able to greatly reduce the number of large, heavy trucks on the road and their resulting emissions. Upward’s decision would eliminate an estimated 250 hours of trucking, also reducing the financial burden to them and their customers.
Beyond the financials, this approach offered a real benefit to the environment: again, minimizing the number of trucks on the road (saving fossil fuels), reducing infrastructure wear and tear (a burden taken on by taxpayers), while increasing the safety of local roadways.
Kudos to Upward Construction’s innovation—this effort showcases their leadership in making ethical, sustainable decisions that make good business sense.
As a result of their submission, the 2019 BUILT GREEN® programs now include a new checklist item in the Waste Management section—5.6: Onsite crusher to reduce vehicle miles. Crusher must be sensitive to neighbouring properties.
