The CaGBC has launched a call for Canadian projects to participate in a two-year immersion program for developers and designers undertaking near-net zero developments in new or existing buildings across Canada. The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday, February 20. Chosen pilots will play a leadership role as first-to-market projects for verification under CaGBC’s Zero Carbon Building Standard set to launch in mid-2017.
Up to 10 projects from across the country will be accepted to participate in this program, which is focused on new and existing buildings over 25,000 sq. ft., with considerations for various project types including offices, multi-unit residential buildings, schools and libraries, as well as other large buildings. Pilots must represent an approved project with the intention to design and/or develop a near net zero project over the next two years, and who are willing to evaluate their projects using the five key components from the CaGBC Zero Carbon Framework.
Pilot projects will have access to four CaGBC technical expert sessions (two per year), receive proactive promotion as leaders in the industry, and have an opportunity to participate as a highlighted case study at the CaGBC Zero Carbon Summit on May 30, 2017, in Vancouver. To see a full list of requirements and benefits, visit CaGBC’s Zero Carbon Pilot page now.
To indicate interest to participate as a pilot project are asked to email Sundeep Virdi, Manager of Advocacy and Policy (firstname.lastname@example.org) before February 20, 2017 at 5pm PST, with a short description of their project. They will be contacted to speak and discuss the opportunity by March 6. Due to limited space, we encourage interested parties to reach out to the CaGBC as soon as possible.
