VRCA – ZEBx: Decarb Lunch: The Builders Have Spoken: The Cost of High-Performance Construction
June 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Vancouver Regional Construction Association – ZEBx Decarb Lunch: The Builders Have Spoken: The Cost of High-Performance Construction
Taking place on the last Friday of every month, the ZEBx Decarb Lunch brings together the local building community to discuss emerging solutions and barriers related to zero emission buildings. The June 2021 Decarb Lunch is a collaboration with the Urban Development Institute and RDH Building Science.
When the BC Energy Step Code was introduced, some concerns were raised regarding the expected additional cost to build more energy- efficient buildings. At the time, some studies were undertaken to estimate the additional cost. As opposed to estimating what a high-efficiency building is likely to cost, ZEBx, in partnership with BTY Group and seven builders from across BC, has completed a cost analysis of seven high-performance, wood-framed, mid-rise, multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) that were designed to meet Step 4 of the Energy Step Code or the Passive House standard. The results from the analysis have been interesting and the event will discuss the results of the published study.
