Building up the best in Radium

New housing development by TRC Projects in Radium Hot Springs; open house Saturday December 21st

Well-known local building partners TRC Projects and Kris Newman Building Construction are once again working together to bring two new home building projects to Radium Hot Springs.

The duo collaborated in 2018 on a five-unit semi-detached home project on Pioneer Avenue in Radium. In 2017, Mr. Newman and TRC’s owner Kevin Blackwell partnered to build Edelweiss, a six-home project in the same community. Now they have their sights on building another eight-unit non-strata, semi-detached home project.

The Revelstoke bungalow homes is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, across the street from the 10th hole of the Radium Springs Golf Course and backed by a peaceful, heavily-treed area.

“This next project on Revelstoke Avenue is one of our best locations that we’ve been a part of in Radium,” said Mr. Blackwell.

The bungalows feature 1,100 square feet on the main floor plus another 895 feet in the fully developed basement, with three bedrooms, or three plus a den, a great room upstairs, rec room down, and 2.5 bathrooms.

The homes have Insulated Concrete Form walls: “a far superior foundation for maintaining heat than a conventional foundation” Mr. Blackwell explains. Other energy efficiency measures include high-quality windows and extra insulation in the walls.

They feature a washer, dryer and master bedroom on the main floor, an ensuite with double sinks, a walk-in-closet, and an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops. They expect homeowner possessions to start in January through August of 2020. Pricing is from $399,000 to $439,000, including GST.

All the units at Edelweiss and Pioneer Avenue sold, so it is clear Mr. Blackwell knows what homeowners are looking for in new home purchases.

“They’re looking for value, and they’re looking for non-strata properties … and more energy efficient homes,” Mr. Blackwell, who has been in the real estate business nearly 20 years, said.

At the same time as the Revelstoke bungalows project is under construction, Mr. Blackwell and Mr. Newman are collaborating on two single family homes on Jackson Ave, priced at $499,000 and $519,000. The homes include a triple car garage, with 1,800 square feet living space over two floors, big yards, and the ability to choose customized colours in their brand new home.

Mr. Blackwell likes building homes in Radium Hot Springs.

“It’s a great municipality to work with. They’re open for business, they like to see development happening. The council is supportive of what we’ve been doing. The administration is very professional and great to work with,” Mr. Blackwell said. “They have reasonable service costs to build, versus in Invermere [which has] certainly a lot more red tape and higher cost for subdividing property.”

TRC Projects and Kris Newman Building Construction have already begun construction on the Revelstoke bungalows, and will have a full showroom open in the new year. They are offering a sneak preview on Saturday, December 21st. From 12-4 p.m. the showroom will be open at 7555 Revelstoke Avenue, Radium Hot Springs.
