    November 1-2
    Regina, SK

    The annual BUILD SASK GREEN Conference in the fall features education, training, and motivational sessions on green building practices and trends. Attendees will learn from industry experts to enhance their knowledge and build their professional relationships through networking opportunities.

    In 2017, the BUILD SASK GREEN Conference will offer attendees current and relevant content on the optimization of performance and operation of existing buildings and sustainable land use planning.

    The Existing Buildings conference stream looks at carbon performance as a key metric in place of energy performance and energy conservation measures that demonstrably lead to carbon savings, such as re-commissioning to optimize the performance and operation of an existing building’s system and deep energy retrofits to reduce energy consumption significantly.

    The Sustainable Planning conference stream will explore creative green building solutions designed to meet the challenges of urbanization, including the sustainable development and use of land, planning permission, protection and use of the environment, and design strategies to balance science, aesthetics and community interests in the planning of healthy urban environments.
