Vancouver Fire Hall 17 - a Zero Carbon program pilot project

DURATION: 1 hour

1 GBCI general education hour.

As the imperative for high performance buildings grows in urgency, local governments are often leading with policy and demonstrating commitment to sustainability through public projects. This course explores one of the most ambitious projects in North America, with a focus on drastically reducing the energy use of a building type that is typically an energy drain. HCMA Architecture + Design and Integral Group share their experience working on the Vancouver Fire Hall 17, a City of Vancouver project. This project is part of the CaGBC’s Zero Carbon Building pilot program, while also pursuing Passive House certification, LEED v4 Gold and Net Zero Energy (as defined by Federation of Canadian Municipalities). The presenters share lessons learned • while offering insight on the strategies applied to earn Zero Carbon Building certification. This session will also explore the importance of managing stakeholder relationships to ensure the end product will meet the project’s goals, both through design and operations.
