Principal, Alice Liang talks about Reciprocity, Building and Land: A Net Zero Vision for the Built Environment Based on Indigenous Framework

Thursday, December 5th at 1pm Alice will be presenting with First Nations Technical Institute President and CEO Suzanne Brant and Integral Group’s Kenny Smith on Reciprocity, Building and Land: A Net Zero Vision for the Built Environment Based on Indigenous Framework.

The First Nations Technical Institute’s new Academic and Administration Building is a beacon of change in our current climate crisis. It is the first project to fuse centuries-old indigenous knowledge of and practices in regeneration, restoration and resilience with advanced building design and technology to achieve a bold, net-zero, zero emission and zero carbon in response to planetary health. Participants will learn about this innovative framework and its impact on the selection of building systems, materials, and finishes. Attendees will take away an understanding of the universal applications of this framework in helping to achieve a balance between long-term building performance, capital and lifecycle costs, and effective maintenance regime.
