Innovation Moves Portage Forward

“These elements were chosen for their durability, longevity, and reduced maintenance costs,”
—Ameet Johal

Aragon homes have always been built with a focus on design. And Portage, our newest community on Port Royal’s riverfront, is no different. Spanning across two buildings, homes not only look aesthetically modern, but they are built using the latest construction innovations.

One design forward approach consists of the Nichiha panels that line the exterior. Typically found in commercial buildings, this Japanese technology is a superior rainscreen system that extends the life of homes by protecting the structure from the elements. Constructed of recycled products, the fiber cement is a sophisticated drained and back-ventilated moisture management system – like no other rainscreen technology used to date.

Portage also utilizes Aquatherm Green Pipe, which is comprised of a PVC piping rather than a copper pipe for the water main. This approach keeps drinking water clean and completely free of heavy metals and toxic chemicals – it is the safest option for pure drinking water.

“These elements were chosen for their durability, longevity, and reduced maintenance costs,” explains Ameet Johal, Director of Sales and Marketing, “which ultimately benefits the owners.” Technology moves quickly, and as each community is designed as far as three to four years from the day people will move in, Aragon looks to market leaders to source innovations and materials that will still be the best in the industry at the date of completion.

The Public Opening of Portage is this Saturday, May 23rd at noon sharp at 260 Salter Street,Port Royal in New Westminster. Visit our Presentation Centre to discover what else makes this waterfront collection of one to three bedroom plus den condos and lofts stand out.
