Twin Building Case Studies

July 14, 2017

For this project, BETAC is working with Manitoba Housing on three case studies for three sets of “twin MURBs” (pairs of multi-unit residential buildings that have identical size, floor area and floor plans) located in Winnipeg, Manitoba.


One building from each pairing has undergone an extensive building retrofit and the other building pairing remains in its original condition.

Our Research

These case studies will document the pre- and post- retrofit energy performance of the buildings, as well as review each set of buildings to identify the extent of the renovations to each building, and their associated timelines.
