Build™ Original Series: High-Performance in Canada
The first Build™ Original Series is now available to watch on YouTube!
High-Performance in Canada is the first Build™ Original Series by the Build Show Network. Host Nathan Kischel of Purehaus Developments visited several high-performance builds in British Columbia highlighting design and build strategies and materials to achieve the higher steps of the BC Energy Step Code.
Two of the five episodes feature high-performance custom homes with triple glazed Innotech windows and doors. In Episode 4, Nathan tours a custom home in Summerland by NIDO Design and Red Stag Contracting. The episode goes in depth about the wall assembly details including a last-minute improvement to the rain screen. In Episode 5, the owner-builder discusses how he achieved a mid-construction blower door test of 0.25 ACH50 in his net-zero ready custom home in Lake Country.
Big thanks again to The Build Show Network, our co-sponsor 475 High Performance Building Supply, and all the designers and builders who participated in each episode. We look forward to the more episodes of High-Performance in Canada!
