Congratulations to our Vancouver-based Building Structural group and project partners as the Simon Fraser University Parcel 21 project has been selected as one of the 11 winners of the Net Zero Energy-Ready Challenge, presented by the Government of British Columbia. The Net-Zero Energy-Ready Challenge is a CleanBC program that strives to promote less polluting, more comfortable, and more energy-efficient buildings across the province that meet all or most of their own energy consumption requirements with renewable energy technologies.
The $2.5-million program provides up to $390,000 to each winner in financial incentives to offset a portion of the construction cost to the highest energy performance standards. 51 expressions of interest were received, with 16 of those projects selected as winners of the design incentive portion of the Challenge. From there, the winners were then asked to submit more detailed applications for the construction incentive portion of the competition.
Learn more about this award winning design, our net-zero energy-ready building expertise and services, and about Building Structures Specialist, Jermyn Wong, who served as Structural Lead and an Engineer of Record on this project.
