Energy codes have a profound influence on building form and function, affecting both design and building construction in myriad ways. These changes are holistic in nature, influencing aesthetics, technology adoption, siting, massing and fenestration patterns and details of buildings. 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. 

Prior to joining The City of Calgary, Justin Pockar worked as a consultant, completing several projects certified to LEED Gold or better. As Coordinator of Plans Examination for Development Approvals and Building Safety at the City of Calgary, current responsibilities include administration of building and energy codes in the approvals processes and built environment. 

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.  
Above all, David was a gifted teacher and exceptional mentor to many.   While he has performed these roles in the traditional and formal capacities – serving on the University of Saskatchewan Accreditation team, as a sessional lecturer, and as leader in the Planning for the Future initiative - he was at his very best one on one, humbly inspiring and nourishing individuals to do more, be better, reach higher, and not be complacent. He had infinite patience and respect for the mentee and immeasurable passion for planning.   

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.
