Stevan Vinci, Building Science Consultant and Sustainability Specialist, has been selected as a 2017 LEED Fellow by the Green Business Certification Institute (GBCI). This honor is granted for his outstanding work as LEED Professional and the significance of his contributions to the green building community.
The BC Step Code, British Columbia’s stretch Energy Code, is a performance-based standard that establishes a set of voluntary, incremental and measurable requirements for energy efficiency in New Construction.
When considering sustainability certification, the Building Envelope both constitutes a significant quantity of the materials, and is a challenging part of the certification process due to the building envelope’s chemical nature. All key sustainability programs (LEED, Living Building Challenge, Passive House, Green Globes) include a materials component and often include an exclusions list.

Marquee Projects to Celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday
Earlier this year, we announced that Morrison Hershfield was building a unique Canada150 Mosaic to celebrate 150 years of engineering contributions to Building Canada's landscapes and cityscapes with our industry.
As part of this campaign, we want to share images of 150 Canadian Marquee projects through the Instagram platform. Here are the first 25 projects posted to the mosaic. Share your moments and memories from this year's Canada150 celebrations or projects you've worked on to help make Canada what it is today.
“The award recognizes excellence, northern innovations/adaptation, sustainability, service to the community and enhancement to the quality of life through engineering in Yukon.”
Benefits of the Mayo River Flood Control Project
The Mayo River Flood Control Project has significantly contributed to protecting the Village of Mayo against adverse effects related to winter flooding on the River. It has provided future recreational opportunities near the lower Mayo River, allowing access to this natural area for residents. New trails now give residents the ability to enjoy this natural setting along the river.
In our last post, Whole Building Air Leakage Testing, we discussed the importance of designing a continuous air barrier. While proper design and installation are critical to passing the Air Leakage test, the work that goes into performing the actual test should not be overlooked. With this in mind, we want to reiterate the importance of thinking through the testing process early in project design.
