Highlighting LEED®-certified buildings in 2017 MEETING CANADA’S GHG EMISSION REDUCTION TARGETS, ONE BUILDING AT A TIME Welcome to the eighth edition of the LEED in Canada: Buildings in Review supplement, produced in partnership with SABMag. In this supplement, you will read about some of the most innovative and efficient buildings in Canada. LEED certification provides a critical third-party seal of approval in the marketplace, and ensures that a building has gone through a rigorous process to verify their environmental performance targets. Over the past 15 years, 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 outside of the U.S., with over 3,400 LEED certified projects, and well over 7,200 registered projects across the country. Last year was a big year for Canadian green buildings, with the launch of Canada’s first Zero Carbon Building Standard, growing recognition and support from governments across Canada, and a slew of new LEED v4 certifications and registrations. We also continue to expand our educational offerings and technical training via webinars and in-classroom sessions, as well as bringing you the latest ideas, information and innovation at Building Lasting Change, this year including the international WorldGBC Congress, taking place at Beanfield Centre in Toronto from June 5 to 7 – we hope to see you there. 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 of the 2017 LEED certified projects. - Canada Green Building Council

THE PATERSON GLOBALFOODS INSTITUTE The Paterson GlobalFoods Institute, formerly the Union Bank Tower, is located in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District, within Red River College’s downtown, urban campus. Designated with Grade 1 heritage status, the existing steel frame high-rise heritage structure had been abandoned for 19 years prior to its transformation into a LEED® Gold Certified School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts with 104 student housing units. The overall project scope consisted of remediation and renovation to the existing heritage tower, former banking hall and annex, as well as construction of a three-storey addition. This adaptive re-use project within Winnipeg’s urban core exemplifies a sustainable approach with many of the typical strategies one would find in a LEED certified building including: a green roof; water use reduction; waste management during construction; the use of materials with low VOCs and recycled content; and a new mechanical system and renovated envelope which helped achieve 49% energy cost savings over MNECB.
Additionally, there were some unique sustainable strategies employed in the design of the addition, which houses the bulk of the mechanical and lab equipment. Here, the cooking laboratory energy from the Culinary Arts Program is recycled rather than simply being discarded: waste heat from the refrigeration systems is captured to heat domestic water as well as the pumps that heat and cool the student residence.

SUS oversees the other two-thirds of the space with administrative responsibility over the facility’s operation. “SUS is excited and proud to have learned the SUB has achieved LEED Gold Status,” said Gurvir (Gee) Gill, SUS president. “Global warming and environmental issues are a priority concern for university students as the impact of today’s environmental decisions will have significant results on our collective future. Achieving LEED Gold Status is the legacy of the thousands of UFV students who helped fund the building and it is a testament to their commitment to improving the environment.” “UFV takes great pride in providing sustainable facilities that our community can enjoy and where students can be immersed in a clean and comfortable environment while learning, socializing, or attending events,” said Craig Toews, Vice President, External. “This is quite an achievement in terms of environmental stewardship.” The SUB is UFV’s third LEED-quality building, joining the Chilliwack campus at Canada Education Park (Gold) and Abbotsford’s Building C (Silver). The iconic $17.3 million, 46,700 square foot SUB represents the culmination of collaborative design and construction efforts between the Student Union Society (SUS) and the university.
According to the Canada Green Building Council, green buildings create a healthier indoor environment for occupants through better indoor air quality, less harmful products, and more natural daylight. They also reduce waste, conserve energy, decrease water consumption, and drive innovation. The council suggests all of this can positively affect bottom line and boost productivity.
CBRE This project received LEED® Silver certification and the design and construction aligns with the principles of the WELL Building Standard. We focused on indoor air quality and unmatched access to daylight and views. All employees have ergonomic sit-stand desks to encourage mobility and increase comfort. The HVAC design complies with ASHRAE 2013 standards. Greater fresh air intake improves air quality. Multiple thermostats allow for more occupant control, and 100% of our finishes are low VOC. All lighting is energy-efficient LED; this provides us with a 37% energy savings over typical lighting solutions. Different work styles and the need for ad-hoc collaboration required a variety of meeting spaces strategically placed throughout. Our technology investment focused on mobility, combined with digitizing 85% our files – enables employees to work effectively beyond their desks. This successful project was the perfect showcase of CBRE’s end-to-end integrated services. We leveraged our deep expertise in Advisory and Transaction Services, Workplace Strategy, Project Management and Business Transition Move Management to create a world class real estate solution.

THE NEW JUBILEE HOUSE About the Jubilee House The original Jubilee House, an 87-unit social housing facility built in 1986, was owned by the City of Vancouver and operated by the 127 Society. The building was falling into disrepair, the structure was failing and maintenance costs were mounting putting a strain on the Society. In order to facilitate the relocation and creation of social housing in the downtown core, Brenhill exchanged its land across the street with the City of Vancouver and developed 162 brand new social housing units which created an additional 75 new units for the 127 Society. With an uncompromising focus on quality, Brenhill collaborated with BC Housing, the City of Vancouver, the 127 Society for Housing and Terra Housing to build a new social housing facility for seniors in the downtown core – the new Jubilee House. The direct involvement of all parties throughout each phase of the project ensured that the daily needs of residents were forefront in design. The entire ground floor is dedicated to amenities and offices featuring several multi-purpose rooms, a library, computer room, kitchen and low-cost food store. Enhanced lighting throughout the building accommodates those with failing eyesight and two roof-top patios with edible gardens encourage community among the residents. Upon completion in 2016, all existing residents were able to move right across the street to their newly completed, modern homes. The additional low-end-of-market units assist the non-profit 127 Society in operating and maintaining the new building creating a self-sustaining model to meet the growing housing needs of Vancouver’s low and middle-income population. The Jubilee House has raised the bar in seniors’ accommodation design and was awarded the 2016 Award for Excellence in Urban Development for Non-Market Housing at UDI’s bi-annual award ceremony.
