ZEBx Decarb lunch: The cost of high-performance construction
June 25, 2021 @ 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Free webinar hosted by ZEBx: The builders have spoken: The cost of high-performance construction.
The Decarb lunch series: Taking place on the last Friday of every month, the ZEBx Decarb Lunch brings together the local building community to discuss emerging solutions and barriers related to zero emission buildings:
The Jun 2021 Decarb Lunch is a collaboration with the Urban Development Institute and RDH Building Science.
When the Step Code was introduced, some concerns were raised regarding the expected additional cost to build more energy- efficient buildings. At the time, some studies were undertaken to estimate the additional cost.
As opposed to estimating what a high-efficiency building is likely to cost, ZEBx, in partnership with BTY Group and seven builders from across BC, has completed a cost analysis of seven high-performance, wood-framed, mid-rise, multi-unit residential buildings that were designed to meet Step 4 of the Energy Step Code or the Passive House standard. The results of the study may surprise you!
