Be Prepared for the Retrofit Boom

In the wake of COVID-19, governments will be looking for ways to kick-start the economy and create jobs. This could put social housing retrofit projects at the forefront, especially with B.C.’s existing $1.1 billion commitment to upgrade social housing stock and improve energy efficiency. Join Impact Engineering and learn how to use this time now to plan for the future. Preserve your assets and save on energy costs by being prepared to act on incentive funding and improve the long-term operation and reliability of your buildings. This webinar will cover energy planning and identify strategies to get ready for the retrofit boom.
