Enhancing building performance in community housing : year one research journey
MetadataShow full item record
DescriptionThis program of research is committed to studying – and enhancing – building performance in community housing in Canada. Embracing this challenge as an opportunity to explore the linkages between building performance and other community housing issues, our team is taking a holistic approach by considering the interrelationships of the technical aspects of building performance and the social and environmental aspects of community housing. This report traces our interdisciplinary journey in Year 1 and shares insights and reflections from practitioners, researchers, and students, and reports on preliminary activities and emerging research directions that will guide future investigations of energy and building performance in Canada’s community housing sector.
