We offer you the privilege of designing your home in collaboration with Claude Fugere, architect and designer of Struktäll, according to the budget you have established with us beforehand. Thus, he designs your project according to your expectations, while respecting the physical constraints of your land, municipal regulations and finally, the requirements of the Quebec building code. In Quebec, all architects must be a member of l’Ordre des architectes du Québec to practice their profession.

Protecting the public in the practice of architecture
Following the production of construction plans by the architect, the latter prepares the list of building materials planned for the project, in order to proceed with the final order. In accordance with our business model of reducing costs as much as possible, for the benefit of customers, we have chosen not to have a factory. Therefore, this order will be sent to our main suppliers of walls, doors, windows and joists for the main structure and to complementary suppliers for the foundation, kitchen, bathroom, and other required items. In Quebec, the materials are guaranteed by the suppliers, according to the consumer protection law.

Regulations on building material guarantees
As soon as the building materials order is placed, we plan the construction by establishing a delivery date, to ensure that the assembly team arrives at the construction site at the same time as the building materials. In addition, it is imperative for us to plan the preparation work in accordance with this date, so that the foundation and other preparatory work is completed beforehand. The general contractor assigned to the project offers the new house guarantee according to the standards of la Régie du bâtiment.

Struktäll has a progressive vision of residential and commercial construction. Its proven system that can be adapted to all types of secondary structures in wood, steel or aluminum allows a house to be built directly on site, while respecting greatly improved construction deadlines. The Struktäll system meets the criteria of the Novoclimat and LEED programs, if desired. It does not generate any waste of materials or waste on construction sites: the fasteners and assembly parts are designed using 3D modeling software and pre-machined by our suppliers.
As they are structured on independent arches, Struktäll houses allow better bearing capacity of the roof or upper floors and generous fenestration if necessary. Our house models can evolve according to the needs of their owner to become unique pieces of architectural design. The system adapts itself easily to uneven terrain, which promotes the harmonious integration of the structure with its environment.
Designed to be self-built, Stuktäll Homes make residential building extremely simple, eliminating inaccuracies and last minute adjustments on job sites. The joists and posts that form the frame are stapled together, without nails, and are then simply connected together and finally, harmonized by the solid or fenestrated wall panels.
Struktäll simplifies the construction of houses. The construction industry was in dire need of it. His way of building houses is less artisanal, faster, more affordable, while retaining a touch of elegance and aesthetics.
Struktäll innovates to improve the quality of life of the people who lives there!
Choosing to build yourself is a big life decision, from a human and financial point of view. This is why we have established a transparent process to reassure our customers of their commitment and the goal to be achieved.
Choice of house and budget
Like any good project, you have to visualize what you want and then put in place what you need to achieve it. Concretely, you have to determine your budget to select the house that will best meet your means.
Once your budget has been fixed with a member of our team, it’s time to put our professionals to work to design the house of your dreams. This is when you and Struktäll sign the preliminary project agreement, in order to start discussions with our architect and begin designing your home.
When building a new home, financial institutions approach mortgage financing in two ways, either turnkey or self-build. For turnkey projects, your financial institution will require that the entire project be managed by a single general contractor offering the guarantee of new homes to finance you. While in self-construction, if it offers this possibility, your financial institution may add certain conditions according to several financial criteria. It is therefore important for you to validate these criteria with this one before you engage with us.
In accordance with the requirements of financial institutions, Struktäll requests four equal installments of 25% of the total amount of the project, i.e. a first installment when ordering the materials, a second when they are delivered (six to eight weeks later), a third one a week after delivery and the last at the end of the work, when the building inspector has made his verification report.
Building sustainable homes means building sustainable environments and living environments. It’s not just about reducing energy costs, but also about providing environments where people will be happy to live there and can live healthy.
Struktäll wants to meet the environmental demands which are increasingly requested in the housing market. Its concept is designed to improve the energy efficiency of its buildings and aims to act as a vector of change in the residential construction industry so that it improves its construction techniques. Its concept also contributes to achieving the energy saving objectives set under Quebec’s Energy Strategy – “Energy to build the Quebec of tomorrow”. Struktäll also drew on similar voluntary programs in operation in the United States and elsewhere in Canada, including the federal ENERGY STAR® and R-2000 programs for new homes, which evolve with technological advances.
