A new program just hit the housing market. Mid- and high-rise builders have the opportunity to certify their buildings with the trusted ENERGY STAR® brand, commonly known for products, equipment and new homes.
ENERGY STAR® for New Homes is the most successful certification program in Canadian construction, and now that same level of quality and efficient construction is coming to mid- and high-rise residential buildings.
In this half-day workshop for builders, you will study the Program Guide’s technical requirements as they pertain to the responsibility of the builders in the ENERGY STAR® Multifamily High Rise program, the Certification process and the Documentation and Submissions processes.
Note: Both this and the Licensed Professional workshop are mandatory for ENERGY STAR® Multifamily licensed professionals.
This program has been made possible through the financial support of IESO, Enbridge and Union Gas.
