Light House Sustainable Building Centre – Market Insights: Extreme Makeover – Whole Building Retrofits

There are more than 5,000 high rise buildings in major Canadian cities, and tens of thousands worldwide. A staggering number of these buildings are now 30 years in age or older, and in need of complete retrofits if they are to continue to perform efficiently and remain attractive to tenants. What is the industry doing to meet this challenge? What is the opportunity for incorporating energy efficiency practices and achieving operational efficiencies and cost savings? And what are the challenges to be faced in the future with regard to retrofitting the new buildings of today? Many see renewal as an opportunity and are now developing whole building retrofit programs aimed at addressing the challenge. This edition of Market Insights will be moderated by Lorina Keery, Energy & Environmental Manager – BOMA BC, with featured speakers Douglas Birkenshaw B.Arch. B.E.S. LEED AP OAA FRAIC, B+H Bunting Coady; Bryce Conacher, Director of Business Development –  LEDCOR Renew; and Derek Page, Director-Real Estate Management, Oxford Properties. Together they will discuss one of the great challenges facing the building sector in the 21st century. It takes place Tuesday, June 5, 2012, 7:30 – 10:00 a.m. at the Four Season Hotel, 791 West Georgia Street, Vancouver. Register online at
