Facilities of the Future: Sustainable Housing Tour
Join Carbon 613 for a unique opportunity to learn about two of Ottawa's most sustainable housing communities: Beaver Barracks, which was, in 2012, the largest residential geo-thermal system in Canada (and has several other community sustainability features) and a new 16-unit affordable passive house development on Arlington Ave. The Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation (CCOC) has a knack for building communities that are ahead of their time. Come learn from their experiences over the years in both building green and engaging tenants in these green buildings.
