Alberta greenhouse receives first LEED Gold certification in Canada! Project Credits The Greenhouse Research and Production Complex, located in Brooks, Alberta, has become the first greenhouse in Canada to earn LEED certification, achieving LEED Gold. Boasting over 5,500 square metres of space, this greenhouse research facility plays a pivotal role in the development of new greenhouse technologies and production methods. The facility also boasts advanced capabilities in areas such as greenhouse lighting, aeroponics, integrated pest management [IPM], energy conservation and climate controls. Construction of the complex was completed in July 2010 at a total cost of $17 million. The greenhouse replaces the existing 40-year-old facility while meeting future needs.
