GREEN HOMES SUMMIT
The 2nd annual Green Homes Summit was on January 28, 2016. This was a one-day, regionally-focused education sessions for developers, builders, designers, architects, and anyone involved in building ‘better than code’ housing.
This Greater Toronto Chapter's Green Homes Summit focused on residential construction and covered both single-family homes (including townhomes and various attached styles) and multifamily projects up to the midrise level (up to 12 storeys). The Summit also included sessions on LEED Canada for Homes, and many regional energy and green building standards. Eligible for both 8 GBCI and OAA hours, course code will be sent to attendees after the Green Homes Summit.
