This presentation will explore how building operators, property managers, and building owners influence a building’s energy performance.

Keynote - Greening Commercial Real Estate: A past, present, and future perspective

A lot has changed in the past decade.  Many of the largest real estate companies in the country are now reporting – and setting targets around –  their sustainability performance.  The application of green building practices and technologies have also taken off.  But the drivers and pace of change has been uneven across asset classes and regions.  Oxford Properties has taken a leadership approach to sustainability across its global portfolio spanning over 100 million square feet and 5 asset classes.  Darryl Neate, Director Sustainability, has been at the centre of Oxford’s strategy, programs and reporting for the last 10 years and has a unique perspective on the green building landscape in Canada and beyond.  Darryl will discuss where we’ve come from and where we are today, before exploring key trends for the future.  He will also address some of the challenges of driving change within organizations and outline strategies for practitioners passionate about developing and managing the next generation of sustainable buildings.

Energy Code Roundtable

The adoption of the 2017 National Energy Code for Buildings has resulted in a number of changes to how buildings are designed and approved by municipalities.  Over the past 10 months municipalities and consultants have been working through the new process and have acquired lessons learned. The goal of this session is to provide you with insight from the City of Regina, City of Saskatoon, and local consultants on how to mitigate challenges you may be facing in your projects. This session will include a series of short presentations with opportunities to discuss your project challenges or lessons learnt with colleagues in an informal, roundtable discussion setting.

2:00 – Welcome and Introductions
2:10 – 2:30 – Lessons Learned from approval bodies (City of Saskatoon / City of Regina)
2:30-3:00 – Roundtable Discussion
3:00 – 3:20 – Lessons Learned from consultant teams (aodbt / Crosier Kilgour & Partners Ltd). 
3:20 – 3:50 – Roundtable Discussion 
3:50 – 4:00 – Wrap up
