After an amazing summer running around the bush, it's time to settle down for one last year in the classroom. With the destruction from the fires throughout BC and thinking about the rebuild to come, there has already been a lot of opportunity for learning and improving our goals with Step3.
We are now working on models for sustainable housing that use approximately 60% less energy than a house built to standard code. The possibility of implementing these into the rebuild and, in the future, new buildings will enable a much quicker transition to a green living environment. With this experience we hope to be able to improve our own projects and open avenues to not only power buildings, but create buildings are more energy efficient in the first place. Self sustainability is the future and were getting closer everyday!
