Enermodal Engineering Inc. – Designing for People and the Planet

Designing for people and the planet is an unfolding reality for designers of buildings and communities. Conventional approaches to design have failed to cost-effectively deliver sustainability. The integrated design process, high-performance building technologies and sophisticated performance simulation tools offer enormous potential but pose interesting questions and challenges. How close are we to net-zero energy buildings in Canada? Should designers focus mostly on adaptive/passive systems that can easily integrate active renewable energy technologies in the future? How much does the promise of design depend on the realities of operation and maintenance? In this presentation, Enermodal Engineering President Stephen Carpenter M.A.Sc. P.Eng. will explore the state of building and community design today, and where it should go in order to balance social, environmental and economic dynamics. It takes place Monday, February 27, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at University of British Columbia – Robson Square, 800 Robson Street, Vancouver.
