Active House Symposium – Sustainable Housing

Active House

Powered by Great Gulf and Velux, September 16th, 2019 marked the arrival of the Active House Symposium in Canada. This two-day affair witnessed the gathering of Builders, Architects, Engineers and other industry experts from across the world. Their theme was consistent; to talk about how building sustainable smart homes will be the future of the real estate industry.
Eddy Solutions, provider of Intelligent Leak Protection for Builders and Homes, along with our partner, Enercare Connections, sponsored the Keynote speaker Kristian Lars Ahlmark, Partner and Design Director at the Copenhagen Office at Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects. His company’s approach to building “liveable cities” in a world connected by internet aligns well with Eddy Solutions as we are a leading supplier of IoT leak protection and mitigation technology and services. His designs focus on natural daylight, energy performance, and pleasant human experience.
Michael Koenig, Project Leader for Honda Smart Homes US, provided a holistic approach to building smart homes through system integration. Leading innovators like Leapcraft spoke about data and IoT technology which helps reduce risks and enables a healthy and efficient urban habitat. Eddy’s Smart IoT enabled products helps towards these causes by providing real-time data to mitigate water damage risks.
A panel discussion of various architects and innovators shed some light on why the zero net energy is important. The event recognized the leading industry pioneers with awards. They are implementing technologies to build sustainable homes in multi-unit buildings, and are consistently overcoming challenges faced by today’s real estate industry.
The event was a huge success and provided key takeaways to build the future of the real estate industry.
