To support builders in providing them the advanced building science education, services and tools they need so they can do what they do best—deliver homes that Canadians LOVE to live in.
We believe in the power of the building industry to make positive social and environmental impacts for Canadians. We are passionate about building science, strong relationships and advancing training and education to support our professional builders to be successful!
Building Knowledge Canada provides building science advisory services to professional builders and renovators; supporting them to navigate building codes, select tools, and apply leading building science techniques so that they excel in building high performance, high quality and healthy homes Canadians love to live in.
We have come to understand that a little building science goes a long way to creating high quality homes that our professional builders and renovators are proud to stand behind. Applied correctly, it also improves business metrics with less warranty and maintenance call backs.
The building science landscape is rapidly changing in Canada. Our role is to help our clients exceed customers expectations and face the reality of building project needs being affected by indoor health & comfort, energy efficiency, carbon reduction and climate resiliency needs.
We meet our professional builders and renovators where they’re at and match their needs with the most appropriate building science principles, building programs and diagnostic tools to meet their building project goals. The results allow our builders to build better homes, streamline construction details and bring their teams and trades onboard with specific training and education services.
