Webinar: Varennes' Net-Zero Library A First in Canada
Part 4 of GMF's new Innovation Webinar Series
Monday, January 30, 2012
The Varennes library is the first net-zero public building in Canada and will serve as a model for future municipal projects in the city and across the country. The new building is designed to be highly efficient in many ways - producing as much energy as it consumes, featuring water conservation measures, and generating few operating costs.
Find out how the project came about, the challenges and opportunities encountered along the way, and the benefits of using an integrated design process.
