Peter Amerongen
director, project manager


A respected 40-year veteran of the residential construction industry, Peter had already made his mark as an innovative builder when he co-founded Habitat Studio in 1992 with Bruce Watt (now retired) and Vince Campbell (also retired).  Having started Amerongen and Caverhill Builders Ltd. in 1986, he brought his reputation as an expert in log home construction to Habitat and turned his focus onto sustainable building practices. His avant-garde Riverdale net-zero home garnered him a “Champion of the Year” award from the Net-Zero Energy Home Coalition. As a company director and resident “green guy,” Peter has led Habitat Studio to its current position as an industry standard-setter in net-zero and sustainable construction.
