Dusyk & Barlow  - COVID-19 continued service plan for the health and safety of staff and customers


Dear Dusyk & Barlow clients


We have been working diligently to develop plans for our offices in preparation for the potential impacts of COVID-19.  We are constantly referencing and utilizing the information available from World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Canada to create and update these plans as needed.


Using the information currently available, we have implemented various staff safety protocols including:

  • requirements that employees remain at home if they or an immediate member of their household are not feeling well and have symptoms of an illness, until the symptoms have passed. 

  • those experiencing flu-like symptoms, are required to consult a doctor or call the health line to seek medical care/advice.  

  • Staff who are in positions that allow remote work will be able to do so if they find themselves in a quarantine situation that allows for such an option. We are working to ensure we are properly set-up for work from home options.  

  • we have implemented a ban on business travel and are encouraging staff to change out of office appointments of more than 10 people, even here in the city, to telephone appointments.


We have ramped up daily office cleaning routines including regularly wiping down and sanitizing workspace and counter areas. 

We encourage both our employees and clients to maintain good health practices including: 

  • washing hands properly and regularly; 

  • using hand sanitizer whenever possible; 

  • maintaining a healthy lifestyle (ex. proper diet, sleep and exercise) to help keep the immune system strong; 

  • respecting social distances when appropriate (ex. 2 meter distance; respect choice to not shake hands).


Although we prefer to deal with our clients face-to-face, we are in a business where most of our services can still be effectively provided in a socially distanced fashion such as via telephone or email.  As such, we ask that our clients observe the same protocols we are asking of our staff. For the good of all in the community, we ask that clients please remain home if they, or anyone they have been in close contact with, are experiencing any symptoms listed above.  If those experiencing symptoms do require our services, rest assured we will do so via telephone, email or fax.


We want to protect the health and well-being of our employees and clients and, if need be, will amend plans accordingly by continuing to monitor recommendations through the noted health agencies.

Emerald Park Homes Trusted Regina home builders 6 things they do to make sure your new home is energy efficient

Emerald Park Homes takes great pride in their workmanship, and have some of the finest tradesmen in the industry working together with them to create quality homes. Their focus is: "Our Quality Shows” and if you drive around the communities of White City / Emerald Park located just 8 minutes east of Regina on the #1 Highway, you will see signs on the lots available for your custom designed Emerald Park Home.

Put 20 years of experience in home building to work for you! Emerald Park Homes are TRUSTED REGINA & REGION HOME BUILDERS and they are experts in their industry.

In addition to building our homes to be visually appealing and structurally sound, Emerald Park Homes proudly build homes that are practical with energy efficient features that are designed to reduce your environmental footprint and save you money. From the air that you breathe to the systems that you use, your home is safer, healthier, and more durable if it is built with superior, energy efficient building products. Not only do energy efficient homes help out our environment and save you money in the long run, but they also make your home healthier for you and your family.


6 things Emerald Park Homes does to make sure their homes are energy efficient:

1. Energy Efficient Windows 

Our homes feature triple glazed, low e windows filled with argon gas that are designed to maximize the energy efficiency of your home by preventing air and water leakage with their five-seal defense system. To take it even further, all windows and doors are sealed with a top of the line waterproof membrane as well as insulated with spray foam to ensure they are air tight.



2. Air Tight Seal 

You want your home to be as air tight as possible to eliminate drafts and maintain an even temperature throughout your home. This means that it is important to properly seal around all windows and doors, vents and electrical outlets. Our homes come standard with an R60 blown in insulation, and we go above the standard building code for our climate by using spray foam insulation on the joist ends for an even more air tight seal. Spray foam insulation throughout the home is an extra that we encourage anyone who is willing to pay a little more up front to do to save a lot more money in the long run. The lower utility bills as a result of an air tight home help with the cost of home-ownership and they also add re-sale value to your home.



3. High Efficiency Furnace and HRV

An energy efficient furnace with an HRV is an important factor in the air tightness of your home. It contributes to reduced air leakage, which means fewer drafts, less noise, odors, and lost warm air in the winter and cooled air in the summer. An HRV works by providing you with a constant flow of fresh air while recovering the heat from the stale air that is being exhausted from your home. Thereby helping you maintain a more comfortable, healthier indoor environment. A programmable thermostat can help you manage heating and cooling while you’re away or over night.  We also recommend and install ‘zoned’ systems when possible in larger homes to allow the thermostat to be set to different temperatures for each zone.



4. LED or Energy Star Lighting

High efficiency LED lighting is used throughout our homes which not only cuts down on energy consumption, but it also has a longer life span and shouldn’t need to be replaced for up to 15 years. LEDs use less energy than other bulbs which allows them last about 25,000 hours on average.



5. Energy Star or High Performance Appliances and Equipment

Using EnergyStar rated appliances in our homes is a great way to cut down on energy consumption. As well as energy efficient water heaters, RO systems, water softeners and high efficiency heating and cooling equipment.



6. Water Saving Accessories and Equipment 

Using water saving fixtures in your home such as dual flush toilets and low flow shower heads helps you to lower your water consumption and water heating costs. As well as water saving equipment like your dishwasher and washing machine.
