Demonstration projects to make existing homes safer, more energy-efficient, less polluting

Pembina Institute joins BC Housing, Metro Vancouver Housing Corporation, City of Vancouver, BC Non-Profit Housing Association to issue request for proposals

British Columbia’s design and construction community has a chance to contribute to next-generation housing retrofit solutions to make homes safer, more energy-efficient and less polluting, while reducing heating costs for residents.

The Pembina Institute, in partnership with the province through BC Housing, Metro Vancouver Housing, the City of Vancouver, and the BC Non-Profit Housing Association, is issuing requests for proposals for design teams to participate in the collaborative retrofit design initiative, called the Reframed Lab.

BC Housing RFP is available here; The Metro Vancouver RFP will follow.

The initiative will include retrofit demonstration projects on multi-unit residential buildings in Kamloops, Coquitlam, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Victoria, and Vancouver.

The lab invites innovators from all areas of the construction sector, including architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers and suppliers, to collaborate on creative approaches to integrated retrofit bundles for existing buildings. Selected teams will be invited to join a six-month exploration lab to learn from experts, share ideas and draw on peer insights.
