Canadian Green Building Council - AB Chapter Design Challenge

Canadian Green Building Council - AB Chapter Design Challenge

The CaGBC is holding a design challenge for the Alberta Chapter for ideas to renovate old construction trailers into environmentally friendly homes using a plethora of technologies and ideas. The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) is holding this competition to defer waste from their landfill and to help educate the students of Fort McMurray schools.

I am personally part of the CaGBC’s Emerging Green Builders group and know that this challenge has become part of post secondary curriculum but there is also a separate prize for industry professionals. I’m aiming to win in that category.

I am part of a professional team that is registered for the design challenge and am looking forward to putting together our team ideas throughout the next couple months. The designs will be shown at the Calgary Sustainable Building Symposium held this May. Hope to see you there.
