2019 BUILDEX Alberta: The Resilience Factor and the Future of Green Buildings
November 6, 2019 - November 7, 2019
This two-day BUILDEX event is Alberta’s largest Conference and Tradeshow! BUILDEX brings together professional communities to learn, network and explore the latest industry trends and innovations. This year’s conference will take place on November 6 and 7, 2019 at the BMO Centre in Calgary.
Session Overview: CaGBC Green Leaders Breakfast: The Resilience Factor and the Future of Green Buildings
Our building systems are increasingly impacted by weather events, changing markets, escalating costs, and social and political will – prompting the need to revaluate how we design, construct, and use buildings to endure and meet our needs. Our panelists will present varied perspectives on resiliency in the built environment and discuss how we need to rethink our approach to the built environment. They represent a range of building systems, from the energy we are trying to reduce to the materials we are trying to improve; from the policy developed to spur action to technology applied to make every building greener.
The panel, along with audience participation, will dig into the varied approaches to addressing resiliency and look at how we can bring these perspectives together and start moving towards solutions for the future.
We’re excited that Susan Kapetanovic-Marr, Sustainability Specialist, will be joining this exciting panel! It will take place on Day 2, Thursday, November 7 at 8 am.
