The iiSBE Canada team preparing for the 2014 Sustainable Building Challenge (SB14) has added to Rosie Hyde, a Vancouver-based engineering consultant who is one of Canada’s leading experts in building performance evaluations.

Ms. Hyde had a leading role in developing the draft Building Performance Evaluation (BPE) Protocol for the EcoSmart Foundation, a non-profit corporation whose missions is to advance technologies and practices that are ecologically and economically smart. After completion of a pilot that involved use of the protocol on six office buildings in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, a streamlined version has been made publically available.

For SB14, iiSBE Canada will focus on assessing the actual performance of leading examples of green buildings in Canada. This is a departure from previous Sustainable Building Challenges that assessed projects based on their projected energy and environmental performance.
