We are excited to announce that we have been invited by the City of Vancouver to coordinate an Ice Box Challenge event in Vancouver this summer.
Inspired by a similar event in Brussels, the challenge requires the design and construction of two small structures that will be placed in a public location in Vancouver to create awareness and demonstrate the benefits of high-performance buildings.
As we know, a collaborative team process is integral to a successful Passive House project and in that spirit that we are reaching out to our members in Vancouver and beyond to provide ideas, designs and construction expertise for this exciting project.
The first phase is an open competition for the design of the Ice Boxes, with a prize of $500 for the winning design. Closing date for submissions is June 5, 2017.

We look forward to seeing your designs!
