Designing and Constructing an Airtight Building

Green Innovation Series: Designing and Constructing an Airtight Building – Lessons Learned from Seattle

Do you want to learn how to achieve the upcoming airtightness related requirements in the BC Step Code and City of Vancouver rezoning policy? During this lunch seminar, the City of Vancouver and step code airtightness testing requirements will be introduced, and you will then hear from  experienced practitioners who are involved with the design, construction and testing of airtight buildings in Seattle. You will learn what it really takes to design and construct an airtight building, from those who have hands-on experience of making this happen. Following the presentations, there will be plenty of time for Q&A/discussion.
