SB Challenge

iiSBE Team Canada launches its SB Challenge project

The Canadian iiSBE team consists of about 20 experienced professional engineers, architects and researchers from across Canada. The team has submitted projects to all of the global SB conferences since 1998 and has six projects lined up for the WSB 2014 Barcelona conference.
Previous SB Challenges have relied on national or individual teams to present projects with predicted performance data generated during the design phase. This year, the SB Challenge process is focusing on a comparison of predicted performance with actual performance, as recorded after at least two years of occupancy. We anticipate that this approach will be more relevant to the industry and the research community.
