Diving into ENERGY STAR® – Enbridge Builder Workshop in Orangeville (FREE)

March 26 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Engineers called for the adoption of Qualifications-Based Selection as a post-COVID-19 economic recovery tool

Join us for an engaging and informative “town hall” style builder workshop, focused on the advantages of building to the ENERGY STAR®® for New Homes (ESNH) standard.

Led by industry expert and consultant, Gord Cooke, this event is set up to help the local building industry find a direct path between building code changes, high-performance buildings, and municipal sustainability requirements.

What to Expect
This is a NO COST half-day (4-hour) forum with expert presentations, experiential panels, and an opportunity for Q&A with industry experts. Learn how building to ENERGY STAR®® can help you stay ahead of building code changes and hear from an Energy Advisor from A&J Energy Consultants and one of our local builders about their experience in adopting ESNH as a standard building practice and how to overcome barriers and challenges to achieve success.
