Cold Climate Webinar Series #2: Valleyview Town Hall
A Vision for Sustainable Growth and Cornerstone for the Community
Valleyview Town Hall in Valleyview, Alberta, had a vision of becoming a leader in environmental responsibility. With a skilled design and construction team including Flechas Architecture and Scott Construction, this building is aiming to become the first Passive House certified commercial building in Alberta, and the first Passive House Plus commercial building in the world.
In this session, we will be chatting with Oscar Flechas, Flechas Architecture and Cliff Huber, Scott Builders about the collaborative process involved with the design and construction of a Passive House building and the valuable lessons they learned.
In collaboration with Parks Canada, do not miss this session geared to better inform the design community, contractors, engineers, and tradespeople on how to meet design and building standards for new builds seeking to achieve Passive House certification.
Oscar Flechas is an Architect with a wide range of experience in various sectors and on different scale projects. He’s an early adopter of the Passive House standard, and his firm now strive to design buildings that meet or use the principles required by the standard in each of the projects.
