The 2017 Spring Camp; Advanced Building Science and Practical application, took place on April 23 to April 25th at Hidden Valley Resort in Huntsville Ontario.
This year's sold-out camp gave attendees three days of intense, back-to-back building science presentations, touching on topics from Net Zero Housing, insulating and designing highly insulated roof assemblies to marketing net zero housing and mechanical design for high performance buildings. Presenters, experts and panelist came from across North America such as Susanne Shelton, John Straube, Samuel Rashkin, Joe Lstiburek, Sonja Winkelman, Robin Sinha, Tex Mcleod, Steve Kemp and Building Knowledge's own Gord Cooke and Andy Oding.
Additionally builders, architects, designers, engineers, and industry professionals from across Canada (and the US) enjoyed in depth discussions and "Open Mic" presentations late into the night covering an array of topics.
A special event surrounding the Doug Tarry Project HOPE was a highlight of this years camp. Very talented Gord Cooke and Tex Mcleod auctioned off a variety of donated goods and services providing a total of $11,650 in support for Project HOPE.
A tremendous THANK YOU to the attendees, presenters and supporting companies! Your engagement, keen interest and support is making our industry stronger every year.
We are already thinking about Spring 2018, hope you are too!
