Make your home energy efficient

Retrofits are enhancements and changes to existing buildings to make them more comfortable and energy efficient. Most buildings today will be around in 50 years, thus, increasing their efficiency is a crucial step to low-carbon resilience, lower energy bills, and meeting community GHG reduction targets.

Energy smart green building

Green buildings refers to both a structure and the application of processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. The Green Building practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort.
