Event highlights

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.
