Discovery Dream Homes takes its responsibility and leadership role as a manufacturer very seriously. That’s why we are committed to developing sustainable designs and practices throughout our process. Sourcing FSC® certified timbers, purchasing from green conscious suppliers, and incorporating lean manufacturing procedures to reduce waste, energy and consumption, are just a few of our actions.

Lean manufacturing is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination. Working from the perspective of the customer who consumes a product or service, “value” is defined as any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for.

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC), is an international certification and labeling program that guarantees that the forest products you purchase come from responsibly managed forests and verified recycled sources.

With FSC® certification, forests are certified against a strict set of environmental and social standards. Materials from FSC® certified forests are tracked all the way to the consumer through a chain of custody certification system. The end results are products in the marketplace that carry the highly regarded FSC® “check-tree logo. All FSC® members must meet an annual audit that is conducted by an independent third-party auditor.
