Consider first that it’s voluntary. No one is asking that companies hold themselves to this standard and subject themselves to the kind of scrutiny ISO 9001 certification entails. No one is asking them to run their business practices and procedures through this fine-tooth comb several times a year and undergo spot audits to ensure everything is running according to plan. It’s only done if you’re fanatical about quality and precision.

The ISO 9001 certification, is a quality management system from a Swiss-based regulatory body that collects best practices from global representatives of various industries. Mizrahi Developments is the only builder in Canada that has taken it on.

Why?

The point of it is simple: customer satisfaction. Clients are asked to fill out a questionnaire on a weekly or monthly basis to assess the company’s performance. Is the site clean? Are completion deadlines being met? Is the contract being fulfilled as promised? It guarantees trust. Customers have the assurance that rigorous accountability measures are in place and that as builders, we’re committed to excellence by standardizing the best processes and methods. Nothing is haphazard; everything is documented and set out in an immaculately-organized manual, which is precisely followed by every member of our team.

Think of ISO 9001 as the ultimate, self-imposed fitness test that Mizrahi Developments has chosen in order to ensure the business is meeting what customers want and that they’re running at above-average levels of competence.

Say that you notice a defect in the construction or material of your home after you moved in. What do you do? Or maybe you notice that some of the materials promised have been substituted for different ones without your authorization. Perhaps there’s a dispute between the builder and home-owner. Everyone has heard such horror stories, and that’s why the Tarion Warranty (as part of the Ontario New Home Warranty Program) was put into place by law, required for all builders of new homes in Ontario. Based on extensive research with consumers and ongoing consultations with the Ontario Home Builders Association, Tarion protects homeowners from defects in work and materials for up to seven years and will intercede if builders fail to honour their warranty obligations. Mizrahi Developments is proud to participate in the Tarion Warranty as it gives homeowners insurance on the quality of workmanship and materials we promise.

There are many people involved in residential land development, home building and the professional renovation industry in the Greater Toronto Area. So how do you know who is operating with the same values you uphold? How do you know if they believe in the same moral and legal standards? All of that matters when you embark on the construction of a building, no matter what its size. A builder needs to trust the trades people he’s working with and know that they will show up on time, have the craftsmanship skills they claim and work to the standards promised. The Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) is a club of like-minded business professionals who engage in the industry with a similar code of ethics and who work together to discuss issues and facilitate communication between stakeholders, including all levels of government.

A home should deliver optimal health. It’s the one sanctuary you can control as a refuse from the world. And that’s why Mizrahi Developments went the extra step to be GreenHouse certified. This is as green as you can get as a builder, a science of smart technologies that are well above building code.

In GreenHouse certified homes, you live in a restorative spa-like environment with superior ventilation and filtration systems that act like a fine sieve, protecting you from bacteria, pollens and other irritants. Toxins are reduced in choices of finishes, including paints, tiles and carpeting. Stringent guidelines for energy efficiency are followed with heat ventilation recovery systems and appliances that conserve water.

Builders are required to adhere to environmentally-responsible construction practices. On site, recycling of waste materials helps reduce landfill. Careful planning and ordering – “measure twice, cut once” – guarantees efficient use of materials, practices which save you money. A GreenHouse certified home is a commitment to living in an optimal interior environment and to contributing to the health of that larger home called Earth.

Did you know that a home can pollute the environment more than a car does? It’s astounding to realize that 17% of greenhouse gas emissions in Canada are generated from energy consumed in the home. But quite apart from concern about climate change, Mizrahi Developments understands that home-owners want to save money on their energy costs. With Energy Star, home-owners can expect saving of approximately 25% of their energy costs every month compared to other new homes. Not only that, an Energy Star home is an investment in its future re-sale, as environmental efficiency is where all quality home-building is headed.

With advanced construction techniques that you can see – as well as those you can’t as they’re under the skin of the home in its systems – an Energy Star home is warmer in winter, cooler in summer, quieter and draft-free. High-efficiency furnaces and air-conditioning units, quality appliances and the latest l
