The Balance Building Group has methodically built its reputation since beginning operations back in 1960; a reputation that hinges on its growth as an upscale homebuilder.
Along the way, Balance has been cognizant of the swing to more sustainable construction practices and brings that acumen to the table, as well.
“We see the sector growing as clients are becoming more knowledgeable about green building and costs of materials are becoming more feasible,” says Balance owner Mauro Capovilla. “And we certainly have noticed that clients have been looking into conserving energy and maintenance costs.”
Keeping that in mind, the Balance focus continues to pay the utmost attention to detail, says Capovilla, adding that “we offer a variety of commercial and residential services such as luxury home design and upscale home renovations and additions.”
When clients ask about green components, Capovilla says his company researches every request in-house and with its associated trades.
He cited, as an example, the work done for an urban renewal project at a
property on Lisgar Street in Toronto, which featured a total upgrade of
all energy-related components so that minimum standards were exceeded.
Balance also takes pride in its recognition as an environmentally-friendly contractor, with all debris removed and disposed of in a legal manner – absolutely no illegal dumping.
This conscientiousness certainly extends to all facets of the Balance operation, with luxury custom home design and building, with modern basement finishing and comprehensive project management part of the mix.
Capovilla points out that Balance’s reputation as a renowned, high-end homebuilder has positioned the company as a premium provider for extraordinary, luxurious estates. He says Balance looks forward to “creating your luxury, dream home, masterpiece” in the future.
“If the frame is strong, it provides the necessary support for everything that follows,” he says. “But if it’s weak, no amount of finishes can hide its flaws. From the foundation walls, to the framing of the structure, to the final exquisite features, inception to completion, we can turn ideas into reality.”
As master builders, explains Capovilla, Balance knows what it takes to create a masterpiece. His team provides a seamless mix of experience, creativity, knowledge and integrity to design and build a client’s vision.
Specializing in distinctive, elegant solutions that cleverly conceal modern conveniences, Balance provides one-of-a-kind details, period reproductions and specialty finish work that make each home reflect the dream of its owner. Utilizing skylights, clerestory windows and gallery level lighting, Capovilla believes the strategic use of light is seminal to the architectural solution.
“Our architects combine their extensive knowledge with award-winning interior designers, to create beautiful monuments to luxury living,” he says. “Whether we are designing and building a new custom home or completing a major renovation on an existing home, we strive to offer a superior home building experience.”
Custom framing is at the heart of the Balance philosophy and a core feature of its business. Capovilla says its custom homes and residential framing projects are examples of some of the best framing in Ontario.
“Our list of accomplishments includes multi-million dollar mansions, custom home construction, and lavish upscale home renovations,” he says. “The pride and craftsmanship that goes into the work we produce as luxury homebuilders is simply unmatched.”
Capovilla added that Balance continues to strive, and source, new and alternative products and methods that provide for sustainable buildings.
“Reliability, honesty, and quality workmanship are traits we pride ourselves on,” he says. “However, nothing says more about our unsurpassed commitment than what our customers say about us.
“We want our clients to feel secure in knowing that we will treat their house as if it were our own. We will diligently work to deliver the project on time and on budget. We will maintain the highest standards of professionalism and integrity, and we will have open and honest communication through all stages of construction.
“This, in turn, will foster strong, trusting relationships, which will invariably result in an exceptionally rewarding building experience.”
