Light House Sustainable Building Centre – Market Insights: Existing Buildings – Addressing Performance From The Outside In

How well are existing buildings actually performing, and do we have the skilled workforce to operate our building stock efficiently? The May 2011 edition of Market Insights will be devoted entirely to the release of findings from two important studies that tackle critical issues facing existing buildings:

  • The Myths and Realities of Real Building Energy Performance, prepared by RDH Engineering for the City of Vancouver, reveals startling information about actual envelope performance in 39 high-rise residential buildings.
  • Eco Canada’s national Building Operator Scoping Study, prepared by Light House and Ipsos Reid, assesses the state of the building operator profession and the challenges facing the industry in delivering green building performance metrics.

Featured presenters include: Warren Knowles PEng, Senior Building Science Specialist – RDH Engineering; Dave Ramslie, Sustainable Development Program Manager – City of Vancouver; and Grant Trump, CEO – Eco Canada. Participants will also receive a copy of Light House’s Market Insights Quarterly Report, providing current market intelligence information on the green building sector. Market Insights is a premiere source for market intelligence on Canada’s green building sector. The quarterly breakfast seminars provide up-to-the-minute reports and analysis on statistics and trends in Canada’s green building industry along with special presentations on critical issues. This one will be held on Wednesday, May 25, 2011, 7:30 – 10:00 a.m. at the UBC Robson Square Theatre, 800 Robson Street, Vancouver. To register, please go to Register before May 11 and receive 15% off.
