SAIT digiTALKS - Building what’s next: The technology behind one of the greenest homes in the world
Green building technologies (GBT) are transforming the construction industry. Hear the story of how the project began an ongoing journey of an Alberta home pursuing the most rigorous green building rating system on the planet. If certified, this home will be one of only a handful in the world of its kind.

Join us on Friday, March 26 at noon for the next SAIT digiTALKS Series with Melanie Ross, Research Manager of SAIT’s Green Building Technologies Lab and Demonstration Centre. Melanie will host a panel discussion with members of the SAIT GBT project team for The Confluence house.

Learn about the innovative design and technology behind this one-of-a-kind home that is leading the evolution of green buildings. The panelists, which include three SAIT alumni, are pumped to share all the details — how the project came to life and the challenges of working within a northern climate, to lessons learned and the value of student participation.

Our panelists include:

1. Hayley Puppato, Environmental Scientist/Project Coordinator
A recent SAIT graduate, Hayley contributed to all aspects of the project ranging from biophilic design to urban agriculture to waste diversion.

2. Tracey Chala, Principal Investigator/Project Manager
With a background in Environmental Science and Architectural Technologies, Tracey has been overseeing the day-to-day of this project to ensure that end certification goes according to plan.

3. Rob Avis, Principal Investigator/Technical Lead, Energy and water systems
Engineer and also the owner of Verge Permaculture, Rob designed the project to achieve 105% on-site energy and 100% on-site water as well as oversee the edible landscape plan.

4. Tyler Willson, Principal Investigator/Technical Lead, Smart home technology
Using his Computer Systems education, Tyler is designing the systems that will monitor and display intensity of the home's water, heating, and electrical demands, including a dashboard to communicate how well the home is performing.
