VRCA – ZEBx: Decarb Lunch Series: Electrification at Scale: UVic Student Residence

March 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Vancouver Regional Construction Association – ZEBx: Decarb Lunch Series: Electrification at Scale: UVic Student Residence

Taking place on the last Friday of every month, the ZEBx Decarb Lunch brings together industry silos to discuss emerging solutions and barriers related to zero emission buildings.

With two buildings of eight and eleven storeys totalling over 31,000 m2 including a commercial kitchen, the University of Victoria Student Housing and Dining project will serve as an important example and raise the bar for student housing at Canadian and international post-secondary institutions. With a deep commitment to climate action and greenhouse gas mitigation, the University of Victoria has directed that its new 782-bed student housing and dining project be designed and constructed to meet Energy Step Code level 4, Passive House, and LEED v4 certification. Realizing this level of performance requires focus, creativity and constant evaluation of performance measures. With the project slated to open in the fall 2022, the presentation will share various perspectives on meeting the University of Victoria’s performance aspirations, modeling results and trade-offs in systems and programs required.
