Building Science Training & Facilitating

home buyers

Home buyers are savvy, energy and cost-conscious, and since 2020, acutely aware of the importance of indoor air quality and living in a healthy home. Our team of experienced experts are able to help you and your team learn how to not only build better, but how to keep your costs down and maximize your profitability.

We train Canadian home builders to cost-effectively achieve new tiered building codes (NBC 2020 9.36 energy code) or to qualify for certification in programs such as Net Zero Homes, ENERGY STAR for New homes, ENERGY STAR for MultiFamily, PHIUS, or LEED for Homes.

We help home building teams to both understand and solve complex building science challenges in homes through an extensive array of participatory training courses, such as


Enhanced IAQ (indoor air quality)


High performance HVAC design


Advanced enclosure design


Carbon reduction strategies


Designing for resilience in the face of climate change

Sales and Marketing Training for High Performance Homes

But the training doesn’t end at the build. Over the course of hundreds of training and mentorship programs, we have also developed a helpful collection of training and course materials to empower builders and their marketing teams to sell high-performance homes.
