What We Do

We’re lobbying for comprehensive building codes on the municipal, provincial and federal levels. We meet and speak with municipal politicians and policy-makers, and provide and present educational materials. We’re talking to other mechanical contractors, building owners, developers, architects, engineers, politicians and senior staff at all levels of government, and the public.

We have the know-how to improve the energy performance of NB & PEI buildings.
