Our very own Navid Hossaini will be presenting at the World Sustainable Building Conference 2014 (WSB 14) in Barcelona, Spain. The World Sustainable Building 2014 Conference is the largest meeting on a global level on sustainable building where the most important and influential international institutions, experts in this field, will meet for the first time. The Conference, organized by Green Building Council España (GBCe), is promoted by CIB, iiSBE, UNEP-SBCI, FIDIC and counts on the participation of World Green Building Council. Its main goal is to encourage the uptake of adequate answers to the challenges, social and environmental, which the building sector faces. World SB14 Barcelona aims to create a global action plan which answers the main challenges that the building sector faces by achieving consensus between stakeholders, organizations and world renowned experts. Additionally, maximum participation from all countries will be encouraged, endeavouring to include different existing realities.
As part of his PhD, Navid will be focusing on the importance of spatial analysis in LEED buildings. The Building and Construction industry has a huge impact on the environment. It accounts for 30-40% of energy and material consumption, 35% of landfilled waste generation, and 35% of greenhouse gas emissions are associated with buildings. Many building rating systems have been developed over the past three decades but Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the most widely used rating system in Canada. Canada presents a wide geographical variation from Atlantic to Pacific Ocean. In his paper, Navid has performed spatial analysis for LEED certified buildings across Canada to investigate and study the relationship of regional characteristics to LEED strategies (points).
WSB14 takes place on October 28,29,30, 2014 in Barcelona Spain. For more information about the conference, visit the conference website: wsb14barcelona.org

We’re happy to welcome Junru Shen to Recollective as our newest Intern!
Junru’s interest in sustainability started from a green building project she participated in during her undergraduate study as a mechanical engineering student in China. Upon graduation, she continued her study in sustainable energy and entrepreneurship in United Kingdom, during which she met her other half and moved to Canada eventually. However, her passion in sustainability comes with her wherever she goes.
Ever since moving to Canada, Junru has been an active member of the CAGBC. She is passionate about LEED, building energy analysis, and all kinds of energy saving solutions. Her motivation kept her learning new stuff, from LEED to building performance analysis. She obtained her LEED AP this year and is now gaining more project experience through intern with Recollective.
Despite her obsession with green building, Junru also loves design. In her spare time, she reads all kinds of design books, from design philosophy as a whole concept to graphic design details. She’s also good at table tennis, which she used to play professionally.
Interns are short-term volunteer positions for gaining LEED / green building experience. If you are interested in this, please check out our Internship Program.
