Zero Emissions centre underway

May 4 2018




The Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) in partnership with the City of Vancouver Passive House Canada and the Open Green Building Society are creating a Vancouver Zero Emissions Building Centre of Excellence.
It will be “a collaborative platform to strengthen the public, private and civic capacities to deliver zero emissions buildings,” according to the VRCA.
The mission of the Centre is to accelerate local developers, designers and builders to deliver cost-effective, zero emissions new residential and commercial buildings in Vancouver.
 “Vancouver is fortunate to have an innovative and courageous building industry,” says Gil Kelley, general manager of planning for the City of Vancouver.
As host of the centre, VRCA will work closely with key partners including Passive House Canada and the Open Green Building Society, as well as the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association, Roofing Contractors Association of BC, SFU, Wood WORKS! BC, and other companies and agencies that have voiced support.
The centre will be located at 128 W. Hastings Street, Vancouver. Helen Goodland of Brantwood Consulting will serve as interim executive director. The official launch of the Centre is planned for this summer.
