A design assessment of super-insulated demonstration houses built in the Keewatin, Northwest Territories and preliminary designs for follow-on units: NH17-95/1983E-PDF

"The Demonstration houses which form the subject of this study were designed and constructed under the authority of the Northwest Territories Housing Corporation (NWTHC), with financing provided by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The underlying idea was to design, in conjunction with the Keewatin Federation and local associations, a house which would be suited to Northern ways of life, be highly energy efficient, and enjoy a measure of autonomy from community services in case of a temporary power failure. A total of seven houses were built in seven Keewatin communities under the program, and it was intended from the start to undertake extensive monitoring and evaluation of the units, so that future designs can benefit from the lessons learned"--Introduction.
