Up first, we recognize the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
Then, we partnered with Nexii for the World Circular Economy Forum Showcase.
Lastly, the team went on a hike to relax, chat, and enjoy nature!
Light House Spotlight
The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Light House has adopted The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation as a statutory holiday, as it aligns with our values and mission. September 30th is a day to listen, learn, and reflect on the culture, history, and healing of Indigenous peoples and communities in Canada.
We encourage staff and peers to make use of this time off to build awareness. We recommend viewing the video https://www.tvo.org/video/documentaries/from-earth-to-sky, which relates to the work we do and highlights First Nations Architects' approach to design, touching on residential schools. The video includes the Sto:lo project we worked on as the LEED consultant, includes our Board Member Alfred Waugh, and features the famous architect Douglas Cardinal - who we worked with on Dawson Creek Seniors Housing project.
Nexii, a green construction technology company, and Light House are working together on a joint case study to capture the disassembly of a laneway house constructed using Nexii’s breakthrough sustainable building system. The case study, scheduled to be published in November 2021, will identify avoided construction waste and embodied carbon savings that are a result of Nexii’s reusable building products.
Light House staff, family, and furry friends took time this past Friday to explore some natural beauty with one another. Over the pandemic we have worked completely from-home, so we are very thankful to be able to gather safely and enjoy the outdoors.
