ZERO HOUSE

 

The Zero House innovative green building project is based on four simple concepts:

This joint project between The Endeavour Centre and Ryerson University’s Department of Architectural Science is being built for display at the EDITdx Expo for Design, Innovation and Technology in Toronto this fall, where show goers will be able to visit the home, meet the designers and builders and experience the Zero House innovative green building project for themselves.

This project is possible due to the support of a great many sponsors whose products and services make it possible to meet our high project goals.

Climate Champion Sponsors:

Climate Defender Sponsors:

Climate Friend Sponsors:

Each of the materials and products used in the Zero House have been carefully selected to meet our criteria for this project, and we’re appreciative of the manufacturers and distributors of innovative green building products for making a project like this possible.

Follow this blog as construction proceeds to find out more about these products and our use of them on this innovative project!
