The developers and builders of The Gales, a new Vancouver Island real estate development in Ladysmith know the importance of both and are building high-quality homes, designed with eco-friendly options to make for more comfortable homes that save homeowners money.
New homes at The Gales are built to the highest level of BuiltGreen certification – Platinum – and offer homeowners a number of money-saving benefits, as well as environmentally friendly construction processes. These energy efficient homes offer the benefit of long term cost savings on water, electricity and gas bills saving between $300 – $500 per year.

Built Green Platinum homes offer lower monthly operating costs thanks to things like energy efficient appliances, furnaces, windows and insulation. Water efficiency is achieved through plumbing and landscaping choices. Air inside the homes is cleaner with fewer allergens, and more comfortable with fewer drafts and more consistent temperatures.
According to the Canadian Home Builders Association, recent research has shown that homes with Built Green certification will sell for close to 10% more on average, protecting your investment for the long term.
The Gales is now a well-established community in the Town of Ladysmith on Vancouver Island. Award-winning GNB Builders continues its tradition of building modern, luxurious patio homes, two of which are currently listed for sale.
These 1,820 sq ft patio homes are built as a side-by-side duplex and are listed at $609,900 – Suite #19 and $619,900 -Suite #18. An additional two new rancher-style homes are set to begin construction soon. These new 1,820 sq ft homes are expected to start at $614,900.
