Better Building Speaker Series

How can we build better buildings in Nova Scotia?

Research shows that we could be constructing buildings that are more resilient, healthier and better for the environment. Regulations and policies are pushing us in that direction, with plans for a Net Zero Energy Ready building code introduced by 2030.

The Ecology Action Centre's Built Environment Committee and Energy Action team are hosting a broad spectrum of architects, engineers, custom builders, contractors, developers, educators, representatives of LEED, PASSIVE HAUS, ENERGuide programs and other industry representatives to discuss how prepared we are to meet the challenge and YOU are invited! 

Join us at the 2nd installment of this year’s Better Building Speaker Series. We're asking, is Net Zero affordable and achievable for all? 

When: April 18 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Where: BMO Community Room, Halifax Central Library


  • Justin MacDonald, On-Site Energy Manager with Dalhousie University
  • Ted Loucks, Partner with MCW Custom Energy Solutions Ltd

Our guest speakers will discuss retrofitting existing building and district energy systems. Together, they just completed a multi-million dollar energy performance contract for the Tupper Building on Dalhousie’s Campus.
