Rewriting Canadian Building Code

From how concrete is mixed for road construction, to roofing standards enabling buildings to withstand stronger storms and plans to help homeowners manage increased flooding, Canada's building rules are being rewritten due to climate change, according to briefing notes for a senior government official.

EnerQuality Sponsoring OHBA Tour

EnerQuality is excited to sponsor OHBA's upcoming four-day Housing Tour to Denmark and Sweden, May 12-16. 

OHBA and EnerQuality will be travelling with a small group of builder and developer members to Copenhagen and Malmo, two of the most sustainable cities and a region of the world that is setting the standard for sustainable and innovative development and infrastructure.

Training Has You Covered from High to Low

EnerQuality will be holding a full slate of workshops this year, both program specific and program-agnostic. These are aimed at helping you, our builders, achieve your goals of building better homes (low, mid or high-rise).

  • Part 9 Residential Air Barrier - Back by popular demand! See why the first two offerings of this intensive one-day workshop sold out. Air tight construction leads to greater comfort for your customer, and leaky homes lead to higher heating and cooling costs – proper air barriers lead to increased savings. May 28, 2019

  • Part 3 Large Building Air Testing - New! Whether you're building to the new ENERGY STAR Multifamily, LEED or just want to build better, high performance air barriers and low infiltration rates are essential for ensuring healthy, comfortable, durable and efficient buildings and enclosure systems. May 31, 2019

  • High Performance Home Sales & Marketing - New! Your customers are buying better-built houses and condos. But what does it mean, and how do the qualities of a better-than-code home affect sales & marketing? This is is for those certifying or just wanting to distinguish themselves from code builders. June 5, 2019

  • Humidity in New Homes - Understanding and Controlling It - New! Humidity control is significant in new homes as we push energy performance. From musty basements and window condensation to short-cycling AC, understanding humidity is important to builders, HVAC partners and happy homeowners. Oct 30, 2019.

  • Advanced Building Science - This is an introduction to the principles behind energy efficient construction. Learn how the best builders are improving the quality of their product in cost-effective ways - whether you are aiming to certify your homes or your goal is simply to build better. Nov 19, 2019

  • ENERGY STAR for New Homes V17 - If you haven't taken it yet, or have new employees who need to get up to speed, this is for you. A one-day workshop on the requirements of the newest standard for Canada's most successful green building program. Nov 20, 2019

  • Net Zero V2 - Don’t miss this workshop loaded with everything you need to know about the latest version of the Net Zero Energy program. Net Zero homes are the pinnacle of energy efficiency, and the direction codes are moving in the next few decades. Get ahead of the curve. Dec 4-5, 2019
