  • L&L: Made in Manitoba Solution - Kithouse

    February 5, 2019  12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
    Manitoba Hydro Building 360 Portage Ave, Winnipeg, MB

    Join us on Tuesday February 5th at Hydro Place for a Lunch & Learn on a Made in Manitoba Solution: Kithouse

    Sustainable Building Manitoba presents KitHouse a Made in Manitoba solution to design an affordable net zero passive house for cold climates like our Canadian Prairie winter. 
    Eric Bjornson of Sundial Building Performance will present on their latest endevour. The KITHOUSE Premiere is a compact two bedroom home with all of the amenities expected but with one notable thing missing - energy bills.  Exceptional attention to energy efficiency in the design of this home has allowed for a modest sized, roof-mounted solar energy array to generate as much energy as this home will consume throughout the year.  At the core of the design is a super-insulated foam-free building envelope, that provides year-round comfort and exceptional energy efficiency even in the harshest of climates with a small environmental footprint.
    KITHOUSE is shipped as a ready to assemble kit with all components pre-cut, and pre-marked for fast, easy, and accurate site construction, with several construction options. 
    Come learn more about this made in Manitoba solution and what they have learned so far as they begin this new endevour. 
    Lunch is included.

    🌎 University of Manitoba - Engineering 2 (EITC E2 155 and 160)

    We know new information can seem overwhelming, these workshops will help cut through the clutter to give you the info you need. Advantages of greener homes range from lower utility bills, optional occupant comfort, resilience to major storm events, and overall healthier indoor environments, both physically and mentally, for homeowners. Who wouldn't want to have low or no utility bills when owning a home?

    The Manitoba Chapter of CaGBC will also be hosting a LEED GA course, you can find more information on this at the link below.
