Sean Pander

Green Building Manager, City of Vancouver

Zero Carbon Building Code and the role of Passivhaus in Vancouver (and British Columbia)

Sean Pander is responsible for the development of the zero-carbon building code at the City of Vancouver and was instrumental in the creation of the Provincial Energy Step Code.  He will describe how both codes evolved, why they focus on a fabric first approach and how both were informed and are supported by the Passivhaus standard.  Sean will explain the market transformation strategies such as incentives, training, and regulatory barrier removal being used to accelerate the code’s implementation.  He will conclude with examples of uptake of PassivHaus in British Columbia and how the city moved from one certified home in 2015 to the over 1,100 housing units currently underway.
