Annual SUPPLEMENT OF
BUILDINGS-in-review The 2015 list of LEED-certified buildings, and selected building profiles
WORKING TO MAKE EVERY BUILDING GREENER Welcome to the seventh edition of the LEED® Canada Buildings-in-Review supplement, produced in partnership with SABMag. In this supplement, you will see some of the most innovative and well-designed LEED certified buildings in Canada. LEED certification provides a critical third-party seal of approval in the marketplace, and is the most important aspect in confirming that a building has gone through a rigorous process to verify their environmental performance targets. Over the past decade, the CaGBC has worked with the industry to change the way that buildings are designed, built and operated making Canada home to the second-highest number of LEED certified buildings in the world with over 2,500 LEED certified projects, and well over 5,000 registered. Last year was a milestone year for green buildings in Canada as Canada saw its first LEED v4-certifed project. We have also been working with the industry in order to take building performance to the next level. We also continue to expand our educational offerings and technical training via webinars and in-classroom sessions, and by bringing you the latest ideas, information and innovation at Building Lasting Change, our national conference and expo, this year in Toronto June 4 to 6, 2016. The CaGBC is pleased to continue our work with SABMag in providing professionals and contractors, building owners and developers, and manufacturers and suppliers with the national exposure and recognition they deserve for being at the forefront of green building innovation. Thank you for your commitment and support for this supplement and congratulations to all for your ongoing contributions toward making “Every Building Greener” in Canada.

BIBLIOTHÈQUE DU BOISÉ 2727, boulevard Thimens, Saint-Laurent QC The Bibliothèque du Boisé is a multi-purpose building, with approximately 6,000 m2 in area, comprising a public library, an exhibition centre and a museum storage facility. It features original, contemporary design - the outcome of an architectural competition. Since opening to the public in 2013, the building has proven to be a new, significant community hub. Design geared toward sustainable development From an ecological standpoint, constructing a building targeting LEED standards greatly influenced the project. Providing a new gateway to the adjacent protected woodland and enhancing the site were an essential part of the project. The plants on the site are all native ones, to draw a connection with the woodland. Trees of interest have been preserved. Trees green the parking lot [40% canopy coverage at maturity]. Light, air, water The light shaft, the skylight on the 2nd floor and the curtain walls provide extensive natural light to 75% of the spaces. Light shines through 90% of the spaces, with the help of such features as glass partitions and unobstructed views [the views overlooking the woodland are marvellous!]. Automatic faucets and low-flow toilets enable 42% savings in drinking water over standard plumbing installations [LEED Innovation]. The landscaping requires no irrigation [xeriscaping]. Rainwater is contained in green retention ponds, in addition to being filtered before going back to the sewage system.
sabMag - SPRING 2016
Energy, both present and future The building’s efficiency is outstanding, with a reduction in energy consumption of 64.4% over the Model National Energy Code for Buildings. Geothermy is a key measurement, making it possible to meet 100% of heating and air conditioning needs. The energy from the hot air accumulated in the light shaft is recovered and sent back into the ventilation system. Materials and resources A number of measures promote the occupants’ comfort and health: certified wood and low-emission materials were chosen. The percentage of recycled debris during construction amounted to 85.6%, while over 16.34% of recycled materials were used for the building in addition to 33.09% of regional materials [LEED Innovation]. The roof is “green” [vegetated] or white.
Ottawa goes Platinum with Constitution Square’s latest LEED certification Downtown Ottawa’s first office complex to achieve LEED Platinum Existing Building certification. OTTAWA, ONTARIO – Oxford Properties, the real estate arm of the OMERS Worldwide Group of Companies, has announced Ottawa’s Constitution Square has achieved LEED Platinum for Existing Buildings, marking it the first downtown Ottawa office complex to achieve this designation. With three towers comprising over 1 million square feet of office and retail, the Constitution Square team worked diligently to achieve the 80 points accredited for Platinum – placing a keen eye toward energy efficiency, waste reduction, sustainable procurement and indoor air quality. In addition to and closely linked to LEED certification and principles, Oxford is making great strides for continued wellness for Oxford customers and the surrounding community. Some highlights include a ‘take the stairs’ campaign – encouraging people use the stairwells for exercise and a CSA Farm pick-up program where Oxford partners with local farms to encourage the use of fresh, local food for personal or corporate use. “For Oxford, LEED certification is not just about securing the best energy efficiency ratings for our buildings. We take a holistic approach to sustainability that also encompasses the wellness of our tenants’ employees,” commented Andrew McAllan, Senior Vice President, Real Estate Management at Oxford Properties Group. “If we can create great healthy workplaces, we provide a platform for employees to perform at their optimum levels while, at the same time, reducing our environmental footprint.”
www.oxfordproperties.com Performance Highlights from the complex’s Platinum certification were as follows: • Achieved an EnergyStar Score of 95 points which indicates performance in the top 5% of buildings. • Achieved maximum commuting points indicating over 75% of building occupants take an alternative to single occupant vehicle to work. • Introduced a sustainable food policy within the complex including purchasing local and organic foods for meetings and events. • Executed an exterior lighting retrofit to maximize energy efficiency and eliminate “up-lighting” or night time light pollution. • Installed exterior sensor irrigation to minimize water usage. • Implemented a joint landlord-customer Green Team that meets quarterly and executes educational events around sustainability. • Initiated Green Building Tours throughout the year for any customer to attend to learn about the sustainability features and back-of-house operations of the complex.

Shoal Lookout Residence
Architect Teryl Mullock Architect Ltd Builder Summerhill Fine Homes Interiors Emitini Interior Design Landscape PMG Landscape Architects and Bioscape
The Shoal Lookout Residence is situated on a dramatic rocky perch with 190 degree angle wrap around views of Howe Sound and the Strait of Georgia. The natural rock has a strikingly angular geometry with sloping flat planes that create a dynamic tension, inviting a bold response. To the east the house turns and leans out towards views and to optimize a severely restricted building site. The upper floor is loft like, open to views on 3 sides. The home is designed to allow the owners to age in place while enjoying the full use of both floors of their home. A glass enclosed hydraulic lift links the lower and upper floors. There is a level access from the entrance, extra wide sliding doors allow the space to flow when opened, and showers are all designed without any barriers at the floor. The home is constructed to high sustainability standards under the LEED for Homes program, and has been awarded LEED Gold. Prior to construction a one-storey home was moved from this site to another location, and completely reused. Rainwater is gathered into a rain garden feature near the entrance, and the overflow is stored in a recycled septic tank for irrigation.
Energy saving features include continuous insulation at the exterior of the walls, enhanced insulation levels, air tight construction, solar hot water heating, hydronic radiant in-floor heat pump heating, a heat recovery ventilation system and high performance fibreglass windows. The house was prepared with infrastructure to receive future photovoltaic cells and a wind turbine power generator. The landscaping takes advantage of the natural rock features and vegetation, adding pathways and an intimate outdoor patio area, edged by drought tolerant plantings. A wood slat screen on the west side provides privacy for an outdoor shower and the lower level spa.

KASIAN Vancouver Office The Kasian Vancouver office was a result of the Kasian@Work process initiative that defines and supports Kasian’s culture, work practices and business goals. The design was driven by sustainability, transparency, mobility, flexibility, visibility, creativity and innovation. It reflects Kasian’s core values and optimizes collaboration and execution of projects. The two-floor, 21,000 sq. ft. open concept workplace incorporates formal and informal meeting spaces, breakout areas, and team work spaces. It achieved LEED-CI Gold certification. The following strategies were used to achieve the LEED-CI Gold rating: • Over 20% of materials contained recyclable content. • 60% of furnishings were manufactured ‘regionally’ within 800 km of the project site. • The need for acoustic tile ceilings was avoided through the use of carpeted flooring in workspace and meeting rooms. • A construction waste management plan was implemented, which resulted in a 65% diversion from landfills. • An efficient lighting plan was installed, with dimmable lighting ballasts, controlled by day-lighting and occupancy sensors • Universal access to natural light for all staff was provided, with hard-walled areas isolated at the building core. • Low-VOC [volatile organic compound] materials were used throughout • A recycling program was established. • Provided an in-house LEED training program. • Incorporated a green housekeeping plan.
Canada Post Processing Plant The new Mail Processing Plant for Canada Post Corporation was delivered through a Design-Build procurement method. The facility consists of a mail processing plant of 760,000 square feet of which approximately 110,000 square feet is dedicated to support and administration, and the remainder of which houses the mail sorting equipment. Working under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design [LEED] Version 3  New Construction standards, the Processing Plan achieved a LEED Silver rating. Meeting this rating with an industrial type facility is a difficult task, which was further complicated by client-mandated points that could not be counted towards the rating. Unable to change the process load [approximately 48% total energy], the team therefore focused on maximizing the efficiency of key building characteristics including building envelope, lighting, electrical power, and HVAC systems to improve energy efficiency. The energy model developed for the project showed a 27% energy cost reduction, equivalent to a 45.5% reduction in energy consumption when compared to the Model National Energy Code for Buildings [MNECB] baseline case which excludes process loads. Building systems and components in the facility also received a thorough review for durability and ease of maintenance. A Durability Consultant was an integral part of the design and construction team and reviewed assemblies and details and provided input during the design and construction phases Wof the project.
