DATES: April 2nd & 3rd, 2011
TIMES: 10am - 4pm
LOCATION: REEP House, Kitchener
(20 Mill Street)
A spirited debate has been raging around
whether older buildings are energy gluttons,
costing huge amounts of money to heat, or
whether they are the poster children for
conservation. Vinyl window salesmen prowl the
streets selling their wares on the promise of fuel
bill savings and freedom from maintenance
forever. Building contractors tell us that new
buildings with LEED certificates of various
colours will help us save the planet from global
This workshop addresses many of the myths
and polemics with solid research evidence
designed to clear the fog and assist
homeowners to make intelligent and informed
decisions. The workshop will take place in a
century-old building, which for $50,000 worth of
upgrading achieved a 60% reduction in energy
operating cost. Find out how it was done and
work on exercises to calculate the actual costs
of being part of a more sustainable future.
The workshop fee for practicing planners
and other concerned citizens will be $225*.
This price will include lunch and snacks on
both days of the workshop.
*HST is included
