Seabird Island Monitoring
The Seabird Island demonstration project, located near Agassiz, British Columbia, features sustainable approaches to the design and construction of First Nation housing. This study documents the project's energy use and provides information on the performance of its innovative systems. While several features, such as the earth-tube system and the solar energy roof /atrium system, did not perform as expected and tended to be overly complex, the Seabird Island homes were found to be relatively energy efficient in comparison with conventional homes.
