This session will identify the radical changes occurring worldwide in the way we design and construct developments. The presenter will share the sustainable design activities of international groups including iiSBE and UNEP SBCI. Currently there are more than 30 green building certification programs, and participants will be introduced to common metrics and new thinking soon to be introduced in Canada. The session will also explore commonalities between modular buildings and BIM-generated “printed” buildings. The difference between “industrial age design practice” and “digital age design practice” will be detailed and the impact on our current consulting structures and liability will be explored.
- Increase understanding of the changes in design and construct developments.
- Learn about common metrics to be introduced into Canada.
