On Monday, Sept. 22, Holmes will conduct stage inspections on the Whistler-based construction company RDC Fine Homes’s residential houses in Crumpit Woods in Squamish. 

“RDC Fine Homes are the first [company] in B.C. to join the program,” Heath said, adding 15 companies across Canada have been selected for the initiative. 

Holmes on Homes originally ran in 2001. The Canadian television series features the general contractor visiting homeowners whose houses need some kind of repair after renovations went wrong. The show was picked up worldwide and airs on HGTV. The 30-minute episodes once held the title of the highest-rated show on the Canadian HGTV.

RDC Fine Homes staff are excited to be recognized by Holmes, its president Bob Deeks said. 

“Mike has selected us for our focus on quality homes and our commitment to innovative and energy-efficient products,” he stated in a press release. 

The Crumpit Woods developments will include the voluntary energy efficiency program Energy Star certification and innovative materials, such as insulated concrete foundations – interlocking modular units that are filled with concrete. 

“The Mike Holmes inspection team will inspect and review our projects along the way,” Deeks said. 

Holmes will be available to meet with people from 2 to 3 p.m. after the inspections.
