Please join us for our CSC Calgary January meeting.

Future Ready Whole Building Retrofits: Facade and Core

Buildings age, energy efficiency and carbon standards become more stringent, and our climate changes. Within this context, owners are looking for solutions that address both the skin and core of their buildings. Architects and consultants must provide holistic solutions that are beautiful, perform efficiently, and help buildings respond to a changing climate. Facade retrofits (re-cladding or over-cladding) often proceed in response to deteriorating cladding elements, inefficient envelopes (thermal, moisture, etc.), aged materials and/or a desire for a new aesthetic. These types of large-scale projects present unique opportunities to incorporate core (HVAC & electrical) upgrades that benefit from a renewed enclosure and delivery a more energy-efficient, comfortable building with a lower carbon profile.
This session will use case studies to analyze the renewal 'decision arc' We will highlight factors leading to and opportunities arising from large scale building renewal, including various retrofit strategies and their impact on energy and carbon reductions. This session will include information on the steps and processes used to move building renewal from an idea to implementation and will provide useful information to designers exploring opportunities in the building renewal market.
