Quebec City's Eco-District: Low-Energy, Affordable, Sustainable and Cost-Effective

This session will discuss 3 successful case studies from Quebec City with collaborative approaches: a 13-story cross-laminated timber frame eco-condo project and an energy efficient affordable townhouse style housing development, both built within the Pointe-aux-Lievres eco-district in Quebec City; and an adaptive re-use of a 17th century monastery into a healing hotel. The case studies include sustainable clean energy practices, highly insulated building enclosures, innovative heating and cooling systems, rainwater harvesting, green roofs and waste reduction. Best practices, affordability and cost-effectiveness will be addressed within each project. An interactive discussion supported by a delegation of the projects’ key players will follow.
