ZEBx+BCIT Communities of Practice: High-Rise & Commercial High-Performance Walls

June 6, 2019 at 7:00 am - 9:00 am UTC-5

ZEBx+BCIT Communities of Practice

The Vancouver Zero Emissions Building Centre of Excellence (ZEBx) and British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) are launching a new program series, Communities of Practice, and we’re excited to be part of it!

Communities of Practice provides a forum for industry professionals to meet experts, discuss net-zero energy products, systems and details, and get answers to pressing questions.

This month’s Communities of Practice event will be held at BCIT’s High Performance Building Lab. Get an up-close look at the next generation of net-zero or net-zero ready high rise wall assemblies through full size mock-ups. Details include parapet, clear wall, window, slab and door systems that are applicable to all climate zones in Canada. This event builds off the overwhelming enthusiasm expressed from over 300 viewers during last month’s BC Housing Webinar, presented in partnership with ZEBx, BCIT, Flynn Canada, Morrison Hershfield, and Passive House Canada.

Patrick Roppel, Principal/Building Science Specialist, will highlight various design details and systems used to achieve a high-performance level.
