Event description

Description

Throughout history, communities have always had to adapt to changes in their climate and environment. But today, the current rate of global climate change is unusually high compared to the past. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead; protect assets; adapt to emerging stresses and risks; and reduce vulnerabilities.

This presentation will describe how research indicates the Manitoba climate is expected to change over the coming decades. To highlight change management in our profession, a discussion will be held exploring how changes in the design process can enable designers to understand future climate change and mitigate the design risks associated with it. In addition, there will be a focus on the use of energy modelling as a tool and how, with the use of future weather data, it can be used to examine future building performance and inform early design choices.
