Canada’s largest net-zero housing demo ends
March 17, 2016
Canadian home builders gathered in Ottawa on March 10 to celebrate their involvement in the country’s largest net-zero energy (NZE) demonstration project that resulted in the completion of 26 NZE across Canada.
Reid Heritage Homes (Guelph, Ontario), Minto (Ottawa, Ontario), Mattamy Homes (Calgary, Alberta), Provident (Halifax, Nova Scotia) and Construction Voyer (Laval, Quebec) were honored for their work alongside Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Owens Corning Canada, both leaders in the project.
In response to global climate challenges, the initiative set out to help advance building science and prove energy efficiency is consumer-friendly and accessible.
