What is Genesis?
Genesis Genesis by KML Engineered Homes is the brand name for the technology and process behind Canada's most advanced innovation in home building.
Genesis provides homeowners with housing solutions that meet and exceed the high standards in Canada and around the globe.
The technology behind Genesis is revolutionizing the way new homes are built by offering the benefits and advantages of a custom built home at the price of a conventional one.
Upon its recent launch in January 1998, a growing number of builders, including Aspen Ridge, Remington Homes and Urbancorp, have incorporated Genesis into their new home developments.

How is it Made?
KML Engineered Homes Builders who incorporate Genesis steel framing into their homes simply order the framing according to their own architectural designs.That framing is then engineered using leading-edge computer technology with a highly advanced vision of engineering.

This newly created efficiency means steel framing is no longer exclusive to custom-built homes, high-end industrial, institutional and retail facilities.


Genesis steel framing is now a ready alternative for conventional housing needs. At KML's massive, fully integrated plant in Cambridge, Ontario, the pre-cut steel is loaded on large machines that line up the studs precisely and joins the frames with a process that carefully preserves the galvanized finish.

This use of pre- engineering and steel allows for a more precise, durable and longer lasting structure than that of conventional materials and processes.

After inspection, each Genesis Home is then packaged in order of erection and shipped to the new home site.

Once Genesis is manufactured, it arrives at the site ready for erection by a certified KML erection crew.

Each KML team consists of only the most highly trained erection crews dedicated to ensuring the seamless construction of Genesis.

Once the framing is erected on-site, it is ready for final inspection.The builder then adds the electrical and plumbing systems and other components like insulation, vapour barrier, wall board, and exterior claddings such as brick, exactly as in a home built using conventional framing.

Because of the advanced precision of Genesis, each component fits on site with the rest, allowing for more precise home building. All openings for doors, windows, electrical systems, and other features such as central vacuums and security systems are pre-engineered by KML, eliminating the need for drilling additional openings on site that may compromise the structural integrity of your home.


The Genesis Technology
KML Engineered Homes, widely recognized as an innovator in the construction industry, has spent the past five years developing the Genesis technology before recently launching it in the Greater Toronto Area.

Through its exclusive computerized design and manufacturing system, KML has developed a process by which the required engineering time for each home is decreased substantially.

This exceptional efficiency enables Genesis to produce the quality of a custom built home using steel at the cost of a conventionally built home.

The Genesis mandate is a simple one: produce homes that the consumer wants to live in.

In the future, Genesis will continue to develop innovative and consumer friendly home solutions that will make your living environment that much better to come home to.

Benefits and Advantages
Conventional Framing Genesis offers several advantages over conventional framing and building methods.

Among the number of reasons builders and home buyers choose Genesis pre-engineered framing is that it's stronger than standard framing, providing an increased resistance to weakness that can develop over time and severe weather damage. And steel is not susceptible to warping, splitting and nail popping, which has many homebuilders optimistic about significant reductions in after-sales service.

Another main benefit of using steel framing is its greater design flexibility.

Because Genesis is a stronger home, it may not require as many support columns, which translates into more flexibility in the creative design.

Layouts for larger, more open spaces are structurally feasible with Genesis.
The imprint Genesis leaves on the environment is advantageous for all. When you visit a Genesis construction site, you'll immediately notice something is missing debris, dumpsters and large stacks of waste scattered about.

Genesis reduces construction waste by a staggering rate of 90 percent. In addition, Genesis is using a recyclable material, creating a stronger, more environmentally proven solution for all.
