Event highlights

CaGBC is hosting a series of Innovation Forums in Fall 2019 that will provide an in-depth exploration of the nexus between optimizing high performance buildings and the occupant experience.

High performance buildings require a rigorous integrated design approach that balances and optimizes each component of the building with occupant behavior. Landlords, developers and employers increasingly value occupant satisfaction, wellbeing and productivity. However, occupant behaviour and tenant activity has been shown to significantly impact energy use.  These forums will showcase innovative products, services and market solutions that address the occupant/energy nexus and deliver maximum building performance and occupant satisfaction.
