These interrelated facets of building performance are not are not always recognized by – or aligned with – current planning and policy goals; yet are intimately related to the cost and long term energy consumption of buildings and their ultimate viability in the urban setting.

In Memory of David Klippenstein
David passed away on Thursday January 30, 2020 after a battle with cancer. After studying geography at both the Universities of Manitoba and Alberta, David joined the planning profession working more than 40 years in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Northwest Territories for a wide variety of clients including municipal and provincial governments, Indigenous Communities, as well as private developers.
As a Manitoban, David had a deep appreciation of the Metis people. He devotedly helped them achieve their goals within the context of limited resources and he came to truly understand planning and its relevance in and to everything land. His work with Indigenous Peoples and planning in Northern Canada generally is of national significance, helping set the stage for future planners in these areas.
In 2018, APPI celebrated with David, his significant contributions to the planning profession by bestowing upon him the APPI Outstanding Contribution to the Profession Award.
Details on how David’s life will be celebrated are pending.
