Welcome to HAVAN’s High-Performance Homebuilder Masterclass with Chris Hill, President and Partner, B Collective Homes Inc.

Embracing High-Performance Homebuilding with Effective Change Management

The shift to high-performance building is more than hitting metrics — it is a holistic approach to design, construction and embracing the change that is coming.  Chris will talk about high-performance homebuilding and tackle the concerns builders may have about risk and change management for their businesses as BC advances the Energy Step Code and additional metrics to address climate change.  He will provide real-world examples to help explain the impact of these new regulations, how the integrated design process (IDP) works, environmental impact vs. profits, and how collectively, we can move the industry towards a more sustainable future.
