This session focuses on the human element as a vital key to the success of sustainable design and construction. Presenters will walk through the commissioning process, reviewing lessons learned from three University of Calgary case studies as they pertain to owners, designs and contractors. As well, presenters will offer a case study from Winnipeg, detailing community involvement that made a 90-year-old inner city church relevant again for the community. Finally, the session will explore case studies showing that achieving LEED Platinum for existing buildings is more attainable than many people believe if the team targets key points and works with a common purpose.
