PEMBINA Institute Meeting
We met recently with Josha MacNab of the PEMBINA Institute and spoke about the work they are undertaking here in British Columbia, and how mechanical insulation can play a roll in getting government to embrace the Idea of Building Labeling. You may ask what is Building Labeling?.
Building Labeling is a way of applying an energy efficiency label to a building at the point of sale, even when renting a home or business location. This will ensure the best sustainable bang for your buck. The Pembina Institute believes this is a way of developing a culture of energy efficiency labels to buildings, similar to that of appliances of cars, and is already standard practice in several jurisdictions in the US and Europe.
Mechanical insulation are the nuts and bolts of building construction and are often overlooked. Josha believes that missing mechanical insulation and the poor construction practises could be playing a key roll in why green building designs are not meeting their energy efficiency goals.
We are looking forward to working with Josha MacNab and the PEMBINA Institute to ensure mechanical insulation is installed correctly, using best practises, up to date specifications and a third party inspection process.
