Learn more about how the SAH pilot offer could help reduce risks as you bring your innovative ideas to life.
Come get inspired by the affordable housing sector’s accomplishments in energy efficient new builds. Read about the projects below and come prepared to ask questions!
Colleen Cameron, Chair of the Antigonish Affordable Housing Society will talk about their Net-Zero Energy Pilot: Appleseed Drive in Nova Scotia. This project is a 12-unit Net Zero Energy (NZE) new build that includes a robust measurement and monitoring plan for social outcomes that could be a useful model for other affordable housing projects.
Stephen Crotty from the Young Women Christian Association of Banff (YWCA Banff) will talk about their new net zero complex of 33 high quality, suitable, sustainable, and family oriented units. The proposed Courtyard project uses innovative shipping container modular design with an efficient building envelope, a photo-voltaic solar system, and heat recovery mechanics. The project includes multiple Wellness Buildings Standards (WELL) to achieve quality and healthy living environments.
