Compendium of research on the Conservation Co-op building.

The Conservation Co-op is a four storey 84 unit residential building in Ottawa, Canada, which when built (1995) embodied as many environmentally sound concepts and technologies as possible within the confines of an extremely tight budget. The objective of the development team was to provide affordable housing with minimal environmental impact, enhanced durability and superior occupant health and comfort. After five year of occupancy, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation initiated a review of the performance of the buildings.
