BCBEC – Simple is Best: How to Achieve High Performance Construction Economically
September 19, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
BC Building Envelope Council – Simple is Best: How to Achieve High Performance Construction Economically
Rod Nadeau of Vidorra Developments will discuss his approach to construction of high performance (Step Code Level 4 or near net zero energy) multi-unit residential buildings in a cost effective, market driven driven approach. He will discuss how to simplify high performance construction details so that any carpenter or tradesman can easily understand and install them properly. They cannot take longer to do, cost more or be more complicated than the way they are done now. He has put the ideas into practice. A recently completed market driven 45 unit residential building in Pemberton has exceeded modelled performance – with total energy consumption for all energy use of 71 kWh/m2/year (this includes common services and lights, heating, lighting, and all dwelling occupant loads).
