Market Insights: Extreme Makeover – Whole Building Retrofits

There are over 5,000 high-rise buildings in major Canadian cities, and tens of thousands worldwide. A staggering number of these buildings are now 30 years or older and in need of complete retrofits if they are to continue to perform efficiently and remain attractive to tenants. What is industry doing to meet this challenge? What is the opportunity for incorporating energy efficiency practices and achieving operational efficiencies and cost savings? And what are the challenges we are going to face in the future retrofitting the new buildings of today?

Many in industry are seeing renewal as an opportunity and are now developing whole building retrofit programs aimed at addressing the challenge. On Tuesday, June 5, 2012, Extreme Makeover: Whole Building Retrofits will bring together building owners and experts from building sciences, architectural design, engineering, operations, and management to discuss one of the great challenges facing the building sector in the 21st century.

The session takes place on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 from 7:30am to 10:00am at the Four Seasons Vancouver, located at 791 West Georgia Street. The cost is $65 including tax, and includes a full buffet breakfast.
