World Trade Center Saskatoon
Prairieland Park Hall A
As part of the 2022 Growth & Development Forum, hosted by Saskatoon & Region Home Builders' Association, CHBA will be facilitating the workshop: LEEP IDP for Canadian Homebuilders – An Overview, Costing and Optimization for Tiered Codes, and Embodied Carbon in the Homes you Build – The What, Why and How.
LEEP IDP for Canadian Homebuilders – An Overview
High-performance, sustainable buildings require teamwork, 3rd-party verification and complex coordination. The Integrated Design Process (IDP) is a collaborative approach to planning, design and project delivery that helps builders deliver cost-effective, low-energy load, low-carbon, healthy and resilient homes. LEEP IDP for Canadian Homebuilders uses NRCan Guides and Tools to inform decision-making for homes (NBC Part-9). This Intro session will explain the context, show examples and outline the structure of IDP: a better pathway to efficient, innovative buildings.
Costing and Optimization for Tiered Codes
This session will help you identify cost-effective solutions for reaching the different tiers of energy-performance in the new National Building Code. Together, we will explore the energy, cost and carbon impacts for thousands of unique combinations of envelope and mechanical measures that are applicable to the local housing market.
Embodied Carbon in the Homes you Build – The What, Why and How
- What is embodied carbon?
- Why do home builders need to understand it?
- How can the NRCan Material Carbon Emissions Estimator (MCE2) help you and your energy advisor estimate the embodied carbon impacts of the homes you build?
This interactive session will provide you with some context and help answer the What, Why and How of embodied carbon. A local energy advisor will take you through the new MCE2 tool and demonstrate how simple changes to your materials can drastically reduce the embodied carbon content of the homes you build.
