Parkin Staff Learn About High Performance Buildings

Purpose Building joined Parkin’s latest semi-monthly Friday breakfast session to share information on high performance buildings.

The session outlined climate change and changing building regulations.  Purpose Building focused on where current market trends are headed and the emergence of new design paradigms that are helping designers respond and thrive.

A discussion on new regulatory and voluntary frameworks included the Toronto Green Standard, Zero Carbon and Passive House. innovations in design strategies, parametric analysis, deep collaboration and building technologies were analyzed to assist architects/designers in navigating these challenges and drive value to clients.
