Codes and the way we build homes are changing; achieving higher performance levels, including net zero, requires new technologies and new design strategies. As provinces harmonize with the National Building Code, there are many questions that builders have around best practices and the building science related to the next frontier of energy efficiency and emissions. LEEP Technology Forums are designed to provide builders with the critical information they require to reduce risk, innovate, and manage their time and cost investments.
Pre-Approved for 6.5 CPDs
Benefit to the local building industry:
-Changing codes affect the way builders and renovators design and construct homes. LEEP sessions showcase best practices to meet the changing codes with available technologies and products with industry subject matter experts.
-LEEP sessions bring critical decision makers, industry experts, and manufacturers together to accelerate knowledge transfer and facilitate innovation in an open and safe environment.
-LEEP sessions put builders and renovators in the drivers’ seat for innovation by providing them with turn-key solutions to meet codes and voluntary programs.
-Challenges addressed through LEEP sessions are generated and prioritized by builders and renovators; they’re designed to respond to industry concerns.
We will Discuss:
-Builder innovation, the evolving energy and carbon landscape, and the LEEP initiative
-Building Envelopes – Building Science and Key Considerations
-Technology manufacturers – Above grade walls
-HVAC – Best practices and key considerations for all electric or hybrid systems
-Technology manufacturers – Heat pumps hybrids
