Course description

High-performance homes are assumed to be expensive and complicated but as you will see in this course, better-built homes can be designed and constructed so they are a viable and affordable option for homeowners considering a custom home. HAVAN member JDL Homes Vancouver is currently building a Step 5 NetZero Ready Home in Burnaby, and as a case study for other builders, will be sharing the project goals, processes, pathway, systems, design philosophy and costs, which has enabled them to build this custom high-performance home at a more affordable cost.

This case study explores different pathways and philosophies when it comes to designing and building high-performance homes, giving builders insights into methodologies and systems which they may wish to incorporate into their own construction projects.

KEY LEARNINGS:

  • Challenges and opportunities of building to Step 5 NetZero Ready
  • Design solutions to achieve high-performance built with a more affordable budget
  • Systems and technology to achieve Step 5 energy requirements
  • How to approach high-performance building with homeowner clients
