Registration now open – Green Building Festival October 8 in Toronto

Simple versus Complex: Building in a Changed Climate

The building industry has more challenges to meet than ever before and according to the IPCC, we have 12 years to cut carbon emissions almost in half. Simultaneously we need to design for the extremes of a changed climate and build in a way to reverse those changes. Do we need to throw ever more complex technology into buildings to meet the challenge? Sometimes very sophisticated green buildings perform poorly while some simple structures perform exceptionally well.

The 2019 Green Building Festival will look at both simple and complex strategies, techniques and technologies to inspire the building community in reaching the goal of zero carbon. Included will be an office building in snowy Austria that regulates comfort and temperature all without a mechanical system, Active House versus Passive House, 3D printed concrete forms that minimize waste, integrated mechanical and envelope strategies for new and existing buildings and innovative technologies that can reduce and possibly eliminate CO2 in concrete production.

Continuing education credits / hours certificate (5.5 hours) will be provided to attending delegates.
