Event description

As Canada's retrofit economy takes hold and buildings seize the one opportunity in their pre-2050 renewal cycles to decarbonize, undertaking a holistic systems approach to a retrofit plan can foster co-benefits for owners, operators and occupants. 
Join our panel of industry experts as they walk us through what it means to decarbonise an existing building, why systems thinking results in a better plan, and take an in-depth look into IAQ strategies; why they remain important, the benefits and challenges in an existing building, and strategies and technologies that can support optimal IAQ while managing energy efficiency.
Ticket price includes session, breakfast, and refreshments.
