Building green in Nanaimo
The Regional District of Nanaimo is hosting several Green Building Workshops and Open Houses in June.
If you are planning to build or renovate a house in Nanaimo over the next year you might wish to participate in one or all of these open houses or free workshops. The following topics will be covered:
- The environmental impacts development can have on your property and surrounding landscape.
- A look at alternative systems that could bring your project closer to producing energy, harvesting rainwater and recycling grey water.
- Learn about cost-effective ways to reduce your project's environmental footprint.
The RDN will also be offering Green Building Open Houses
These open houses are a great opportunity to visit and view a selected number of innovative green buildings and houses in our region. Learn first-hand how various sustainability measures are incorporated into the design and construction of these projects.
