< < back to Research Areas

The IZUNA Canadian Housing & Construction Centre works in cooperation with government and industry partners to assist in the development and demonstration of new technologies and/or the adaptation of existing technologies, and to provide support for the transfer of these technologies, expertise and capability both locally and internationally. As an example, AFRESH Home is a housing demonstration project located on IZUNA's Burnaby Campus that showcases some of the most innovative yet practical ideas in sustainable housing, including energy conservation, environmental impact management, occupant health, comfort and productivity, functionality, longevity and ability, quality assurance and commissioning, and life cycle analysis.
