Annual SUPPLEMENT OF

&

BUILDINGS-in-review The 2014 list of LEED-certified buildings, and selected building profiles

WORKING TO MAKE

Thomas Mueller

EVERY BUILDING GREENER Welcome to the sixth 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 seal of approval in the marketplace knowing that these buildings have 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 2,000 LEED certified projects, and more than 5,000 registered. Last year was a milestone year for green buildings in Canada as CaGBC introduced LEED v4 to take performance to the next level. We worked with stakeholders providing guidance and technical input to ensure the successful introduction of the new rating system. CaGBC will provide full certification and technical support for LEED v4 projects using LEED On-line. We are also offering technical training and educational via the web, in classroom sessions and at the national conference and expo from June 2-4, 2015. The CaGBC is pleased to work with SABMag to provide 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.

Thomas Mueller President and CEO, CaGBC

30 Victoria

It was with great pride that Multivesco proceeded to the inauguration of the LEED Canada Core and Shell Platinum Certification of 30 Victoria, Gatineau [Quebec], October 16, 2014. This new LEED Platinum building [500,000 ft2] with its innovative rainwater recycling system, its geothermal system, its unique insulation standard, its automated temperature control and windows as well as its interior design promoting the optimization of natural light is a flagship of sustainable construction, and it marks the beginning of a new era in “green” building standards. “If today, 30 Victoria is a beautiful building and a symbol green building, I can assure you that when we started construction, we had our doubts. Besides, when Public Works and Government Services Canada [PWGSC] announced that they required a LEED Gold building, we took it so seriously that we have exceeded initial requirements to finally receive the highest certification in Canada, LEED Platinum”, explains Mr. Camille Villeneuve, Chairman of the Board of Directors, at the press release October 16, 2014. This class A building meets the highest standards of the federal government in terms of office space for its multiple features, its versatility and the full range of its services. Its ultramodern design, its LEED Platinum certification and its location in the heart of downtown Hull [Gatineau] make it a place to be for business development. About Multivesco For over 40 years, Multivesco is a leader in the field of real estate development. Its mission is to provide comprehensive real estate solutions to its customers. This new building is added to Multivesco’s property portfolio [office buildings], reaching nearly 1.5 million square feet.

EBI ENERGIE INC.

LEED SCORE CARD - PLATINUM

2014

A real window on the technological future, EBI Energie Inc. was the first Quebec company a decade ago to begin producing renewable natural gas by processing landfill gas. Using landfill gas, EBI produces enough energy to satisfy the needs of 10,000 homes.

Landfill gas cogeneration plant: AN EFFICIENT PROCEDURE Landfill gas from the technical landfill site is the only fuel used to generate the plant’s energy. It produces two types of energy, which is why it is called a cogeneration plant: - 9.4 MW of electrical energy - 6.1 MW of energy in the form of heat Cogeneration allows us to achieve an energy efficiency rate of 64%, or 25% more than a standard conversion power plant. Electrical energy is produced from seven generator sets, six of which are in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The energy produced by the plant is used to address the building’s needs for domestic hot water and heating as well as for other on-site installations. It is notably used to heat the leachate water to increase the efficiency of the biological treatment process in winter. AN ECOLOGICAL SITE IN TERMS OF WATER MANAGEMENT AND PLANNING - 95% of construction waste was recycled, which exceeds LEED requirements - The white roof reduces heat islands, minimizes the impacts on raising the ambient temperature and reduces the need for air conditioning - Rainwater is collected to feed a sensitive wetland environment - Efficient plumbing allows us to reduce water consumption by 42% compared to standard equipment

LOWER IMPACT MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS FOR USERS AND THE ENVIRONMENT - Materials with high recycled content: Steel: 75% Acoustic concrete blocks: 75% Exterior metallic siding: 84% Drywall: 99% - More than 50% of the wood used for woodwork, parapets and furniture as well as outside wood is from forests managed with regard to environmental and social impacts that is FSC [Forest Stewardship Council] certified - Paint, sealants and adhesives were selected for their low emissions of VOCs - Office equipment is GREENGUARD certified without urea formaldehyde - More than 40% of materials used are locally sourced. This practice encourages the local economy and reduced transportation-related pollution. It exceeds LEED requirements - A collection and recycling system allows us to recover paper, plastic and glass Thanks to the benefits of cogeneration, the building is completely independent and carbon-neutral. In its integrated waste management goals, the company is able to brilliantly transform waste into green, renewable energy that helps contribute to sustainable development.

In 2009, 4té inc. signed a lease for 6,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space in Ottawa, Ontario. The existing building was in poor condition having undergone minimal renovations since its original construction in 1978. There were very few windows, a flat roof with drainage issues and the concrete block exterior was badly stained due to water damage and graffiti. The interior had limited insulation with half of the exterior walls being exposed concrete block.

Being an interior design firm, it was important for 4té to demonstrate their commitment to the environment, showcase a LEED project and more importantly provide a dynamic light filled studio for their team. This was achieved by replacing the boarded up loading dock bays with large windows in the studio, reception, and resource area. All meeting spaces were designed with at least one wall of glazing to allow daylight to penetrate to all occupied areas. Corrugated metal and slatted wood elements were added to the exterior to provide visual interest and further protect the exterior walls from inclement weather. The roof drainage issue was resolved by cutting the existing columns and allowing the steel roof to drop, thereby creating channels for drainage. Wall cavities were filled with drywall scraps to improve the insulating performance of the exterior walls while also diverting debris from the landfill. A major cost reduction for the project was achieved by salvaging materials from a previous design project that was slated for demolition. 4té were able to reclaim millwork, carpet tiles, lighting, doors, ceiling grid, counters, and mesh curtains resulting in a 41% resource reuse. In addition to the salvaged fit-up components furniture and furnishings were refurbished or re-used from 4té’s previous office. The remaining unused items were donated to local charities. The 4té inc. office fit-up has been well received by the employees, suppliers and clients alike. It serves as a great showcase of what can be achieved with initiative, creative ideas, a strong commitment to the environment and a limited budget, a fit-up worthy of LEED Gold certification for Commercial Interiors.

We believe in building both an efficient and healthy environment to keep the occupants both heathy and productive which will result in significant benefits for our clients. Our design approach has evolved beyond our typical energy efficient building into focusing on building control systems as being a major component. Having a controls contractor involved in the design from the beginning is crucial. By taking this approach we are able to eliminate unneeded equipment, minimize costs and end up with a better functioning and more efficient building, which is a real asset for the landlord and occupancy. We have now built two LEED projects. The only major change we had to make to our typical building design to make it a LEED building was to change our usual roof membrane to a white reflective membrane. The latest LEED Gold building we completed to house the Oil and Gas Commission and Core Storage Facility for the Province of BC is performing beautifully. This is one of the two most northern LEED gold buildings in British Columbia. Our latitude is 56 degrees, 14 minutes north, which is zone 2b for all you landscapers! We integrated a “SolarWall®” on the south west corner of the building. This is the first SolarWall installed behind a glass facade in North America. The building is 70,000 square feet and in the first year only used $16,000 of natural gas to heat the space. During the winter on a typical sunny day the building only uses natural gas for primary heat once the outside temperature drops to approximately -13 degrees celsius.

Bentall Centre Tower IV

Located at 1055 Dunsmuir Street, Bentall Centre Tower IV is a class ‘A’ building that spans 548,000 square feet over 35 storeys. Anchored by TD Canada Trust, Tower IV features expansive outdoor plazas and an outdoor eating area.

“We take great pride in offering our tenants a best-in-class working environment,” said Arthur Lloyd, Executive Vice President, Global Investments at Ivanhoé Cambridge. “We are very proud of this certification for Bentall Centre Tower IV, which underscores our commitment to sustainability and to our tenants’ need for a modern and environmentally-friendly working environment.” Many initiatives took place which led to Bentall Centre Tower IV obtaining LEED Gold certification including: • A full retro-commissioning of the building; when completed and the findings were implemented the building saw a 4% annual reduction in energy consumption and a 6% annual reduction in energy cost savings. • Upgrading all lighting to energy efficient lamps, including a retrofit of the dual fluorescent lamp fixtures to a single lamp with a reflector. The upgrade resulted in an annual savings of $63,000 in electricity costs and 920,000 kilowatt hours, the equivalent of powering approximately 61 BC Lower Mainland homes. About Bentall Centre Located at the centre of downtown Vancouver’s business district, the Bentall Centre is one of the largest integrated office complexes in Canada, providing a first class working environment for many of Canada’s leading corporations. Few other developments have had a greater impact on the architectural appearance of Vancouver. Spanning over 1.5 million square feet, the Bentall Centre offers four office towers and an expansive retail mall, complete with exterior waterfalls, reflecting pools and a

The Colchester East Hants Health Centre The Colchester East Hants Health Centre [CEHHC] located in Truro, Nova Scotia is the primary acute care facility serving residents of two counties, and operates 108 inpatient beds, a wide range of outpatient clinics and satellite services. Opened in November 2012, CEHHC is the first LEED Certified Hospital in Nova Scotia.

Architechture49 and Farrow Partnership designed the building under the mantra of “causing health”, focusing attention on delivering an environment that would do more than just treat ill health. Low cost strategies of providing perpetual acts of causing health and key components of the facility’s success included maximizing daylight, and developing healing gardens in plain view of interior spaces that are easily accessible by patients, staff, physicians, volunteers and visitors creating an escape from ‘hospital life’. Landscaping was designed to eliminate the need for permanent irrigation. High efficiency fixtures reduce the need for potable water within the building. The CEHHC team worked to reduce energy needs and increase efficiency, achieved through a high performance building envelope and energy efficient electrical and mechanical systems. Equipment was selected to eliminate CFC and HCFCs. A strong post-construction commissioning process was implemented, with maintenance and operations developed for the anticipated life of the building systems. CEHHC was constructed with materials chosen for their low environmental impacts and reduced use of virgin materials. Exemplary goals were achieved for recycled content in materials [33.6%] and the use of regional materials [30.7%].

Throughout construction a high priority was placed on sorting recyclables from construction waste, with more than 74% of waste diverted from landfill. CEHHC strives to reduce waste by providing conveniently located sorting bins for separating organics, metals and glass, paper and waste, with an implemented “pack it in, pack it out” policy. A clean environment in a Health Care facility is essential for patients, staff, physicians, volunteers and visitors. High standards of air quality control during and after construction were achieved. Low emitting sealants, adhesives, coatings, finishes and wood construction were specified and installed. In addition, CEHHC committed to reduce the quantity of indoor air contaminates by installing GreenGuard certified furniture throughout the building and committing to a similar or higher standard of furniture in future acquisitions.
