Reopening safe, functional, and efficient community facilities is an important step in both local COVID-19 recovery efforts and meeting Canada’s net-zero 2050 emissions targets. As communities plan for a post-pandemic future, effective measures to prevent indoor disease transmission are a local priority to protect communities’ health – as are cost-saving energy efficiency solutions to sustain their finances and preserve their environment. 

Watch our webinar recording to learn more about existing building recommissioning (EBCx). Hear about lessons learned from experts in recommissioning local facilities and learn the steps to help ensure your community’s building systems are working together at optimal levels for comfort and efficiency.
