Buildings require significant renewals work on an ongoing cycle to maintain performance and aesthetics. These renewals projects represent significant opportunities to integrate cost effective energy conservation measures to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Based on the results of an initial study of multi-unit residential building energy consumption in British Columbia, a case study building was selected to perform a pilot deep energy building enclosure retrofit to demonstrate and verify the potential impact of these types of retrofits, as well as to identify lessons learned from the process that can be used as a template for future renewal opportunities.
