BRE Innovation Park @ The Living City Campus - seeking industry support

The BRE Innovation Park @ The Living City Campus, in Woodbridge, Ontario will address design and construction issues relevant to the Canadian market. It intends to demonstrate over eight plots (one existing and seven new) a variety of innovative products, systems and design approaches to provide sustainable, resilient and affordable communities.

TRCA (Toronto and Region Conservation Authority) and The Living City Campus are currently seeking industry support for the construction of the infrastructure on-site and for the demonstration buildings. This is primarily through in-kind contributions of services, materials and labour. In addition to basic construction materials, they are also looking for innovative products, to help meet the required performance standards and for the Park. These materials and products include:

  • Recycled aggregates and products
  • Water, stormwater and wastewater technologies
  • Hard surfacing and landscaping
  • Energy network infrastructure
  • Low carbon technologies
  • Offsite manufactured building systems
  • Renewable technologies
  • High performance windows and doors
  • Advanced insulation
  • Low embodied energy products
  • High performance/low energy heating and ventilation systems and controls
  • Refurbishment products and technologies
  • Innovative construction practices
  • Products that improve health and wellbeing in buildings

Individuals and organisations that are interested in being involved, should complete the Expression of Interest form on the Living City Campus website.
