Online Basic Principles of Residential Ventilation

Through this online course, participants are introduced to the basic principles of residential ventilation. We start by defining the concept known as “House as a System”; the flow of air, heat, and water and how these impact natural ventilation (aka air leakage). Then we move on to describing the theory of mechanical airflow including air pressure, duct resistance, and fan ratings. A review of the impact on combustion appliances, humidity levels, and indoor air quality is also provided.

 

There are lots of visuals and periodic quizzes to reinforce the learning objectives!

4-Day Full National Building Code (NBC)  - WAITLIST

This 4-day workshop is a comprehensive treatment of Canada’s 2015 Objective-Based National Building Code, Part 9: The House (NBC). The NBC is recognized in most of Canada as the minimum standard for technical provisions in the design and construction of new buildings. The Code also applies to the demolition, renovation, and alterations of existing buildings. This course will guide the student through the new Objective-Based approach, providing opportunities to use the Code in practical exercises and discussions. A final exam will be administered after 2 days of study and again on the last day.

This session is delivered in both official languages. The French date is to be determined based on registrations.

LEEP Integrated Design Process (IDP)

Building Codes are changing and will soon require higher levels of performance. These higher levels require new tools to measure and verify performance levels and benefit from new team-based design strategies to help with complex decision-making. IDP presents a powerful new project development tool for builders: It’s a collaborative approach to project design and project management essential for efficient, high-performance results. IDP coordinates Targets, Tools and Teamwork. New tools measure and predict performance results. Key project decision-makers, designers, trades, and consultants, work together in a charrette (workshop) format, to compare options and optimize design decisions for the greatest overall impact. Priorities include time and cost investments.

 

More analysis and coordination at the front end of the project is driven by performance targets and codes. Tools and assessments provide measured data. Multiple options are evaluated and selected to best complement each other and meet the project objectives. The IDP process provides measured performance indicators and informed decision-making - before the tender documents are finalized - to avoid the cost and complexity of changes and coordination implemented later in the construction timeline.
