Obtaining a high-performance 'edge'
Every builder constructing single- and multifamily homes wants an advantage. Or an edge, if you will.
Just ask Gord Cooke, of Canada’s Black River Design Architects. A trainer and educator about high-performance building, he considers such conferences as opportunities for builders to evaluate their approaches and trade ideas on how to make their high-performance projects better.
“That edge is hearing the latest and greatest and then being able to talk to each other, ‘So, have you tried it? What experiences did you have?’ ” Cooke said. “That tremendous edge … it allows you to be profitable the first time out.”
