Join Principal Michael Leckman and Associate Jeffrey Mitchell for a conference on designing to decarbonize buildings, as part of an educational session at the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) Conference on May 18, 2024 at 12:00pm PST.
Using three case studies, they will explore how building type informs the design strategies needed to successfully decarbonize a design. The first case study is a ZCB retrofit of a 1970’s municipal office in Brampton, ON); the second is a zero carbon LEED Gold classroom addition in Winnipeg, MB; the third is a zero carbon, net zero energy EMS station in Scarborough, ON.
Attendees will learn to recognize key energy consumers specific to a building type, how key energy consumers influence system choices and aesthetic decisions for that building type and how focusing on decarbonizing the building type can yield award winning design strategies.
