High Density

The High Density (HD) program emerges from Built Green Canada's multi-storey and residential tower program, which was in existence for three years before it transitioned to an HD pilot in 2011. The transition was based on builders' input, emerging building practices, energy efficiency advancements, and market demand. Extensive work was undertaken by Built Green Canada's Technical & Standards Committee—a team whose members bring a range of technical competencies and building experience to the organization.
