Annual SUPPLEMENT OF
BUILDINGS-in-review Highlighting LEED®-certified buildings in 2016
MEETING CANADA’S CARBON EMISSIONS TARGETS, ONE BUILDING AT A TIME Welcome to the eighth edition of the LEED® 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 14 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 in the world with over 3,000 LEED® certified projects, and well over 7,000 registered. Last year was another milestone year for green buildings in Canada as Canada saw its first commercial LEED® v4-certifed project certification. The CaGBC also launched a Zero Carbon Buildings Initiative in 2016 to champion the move to lower-carbon commercial, institutional and high-rise residential buildings in support of Canada’s efforts to reduce GHG emissions by 30 per cent by 2030. This includes the two-year Zero Carbon Pilot Program, and the launch of Canada’s first Zero Carbon Buildings Standard on May 30, 2017 in Vancouver. 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, our national conference and showcase, taking place this year in Vancouver from May 30 to June 1 – 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 last year’s certified projects.

Calgary City Centre Sustainability, client experience and connectivity at the core of Calgary’s newest business hub Calgary City Centre, Cadillac Fairview’s (CF) inspired addition to the city skyline, is the first major office tower to open in downtown Calgary in several years. This 36-storey, 853,000 square foot office complex occupying a four-acre city block at 2nd Street SW and 3rd Avenue SW was designed and built with environmental sustainability and client well-being as core principles. The building, which achieved LEED® Platinum, Core and Shell standards in October 2016, uses 25 to 45 per cent less energy relative to the 1997 Model National Energy Code for Buildings. One-half of Calgary City Centre’s roof features a low-maintenance green surface. Built with low-emission materials, the tower also meets LEED-approved standards for Enhanced Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), and with tenant comfort and well-being key objectives, continuous floor-to-ceiling glazing wraps provide both scenic views and incoming natural light. The barrier-free building is also fully accessible, in compliance with provincial building codes. Situated with connectivity and walkability in mind, Calgary City Centre is next to the Bow River parkway system, with two enclosed bridges to adjacent buildings linking the project to Calgary’s busy 18-kilometre +15 elevated walkway system and its 60 pedestrian skywalks over busy Calgary streets. The complex also provides parking space for up to 250 bicycles. Industry and community recognition of the building’s bold innovations came almost immediately after its grand opening, winning the Calgary Downtown Association‘s Downtown Vitality Award in Urban Design for its animated rooftop lighting feature. As part of CF’s overall commitment to Corporate Responsibility, Green building certifications are a key priority, serving as third-party verification of environmental performance, and a recognizable proof of alignment with their clients’ own sustainability goals and principles. And with Calgary City Centre, CF has demonstrated once again how to build upon these principles and incorporate them into all developments.

Designed by Prairie Architects Inc., the facility challenges existing paradigms about school design and creates exciting new visions for education. The academic spaces are designed as ‘schools within a school’ whereby groups of 150 students are organized into ‘academies’ for the duration of their time at the school. The design creates a comfortable, inclusive environment; with a welcoming entrance that encourages new-to-Canada parents and grandparents to connect with others in their community, natural daylight-filled learning spaces, flexibility for different learning opportunities, fusion of indoor and outdoor environments, common learning centres, outdoor classrooms, and connection to the community. A day care and early learning centre is anchored within the school and benefits from shared access throughout. The school has exceeded expectations and achieved an overall energy use reduction of 68% less than a model building, while simultaneously achieving over 60% water reduction. Originally targeting LEED Gold; geothermal heating, in-floor heating, and efficient lighting fixtures further helped reduce the energy needs of the school and achieve higher certification. The school provides public access and incorporates large glass walls with entrances facing onto the street opening into the large entry and learning commons, as well as the gymnasium and kitchen. The design demonstrates that the new generation of school facilities are open and accessible to all, with the vibrant glow of activities spilling out through the windows on many dark, Winnipeg winter nights.

Deconstruction – Densification – Reuse – Reapplication Diversion from landfill site - Few technologies - Choices based on low maintenance, longevity and efficiencies : all of these describe the project realized by the multi-discipinarian team of CORENOV Constructeurs inc. Écoentrepreneur accredited and arose from the client’s request to move to the main floor of a heritage duplex in downtown Montreal. More than 90% of materials from demolition were reused as furniture, landscaping, pizzaoven, or ornaments, even temporary structure was designed for reuse during construction. Mechanicals were located to allow convenient remodelling of interior walls as the occupant’s needs change with age. Rain water is collected, filtered and reused which helps reduce water use by 127,000 litres annually, a 96% reduction compared to average water closet consumption in Quebec. The interior design maximizes natural lighting and passive ventilation, and only native species and permeable finishes have been used in landscaping. The efforts made in planning and execution were recognised by LEED Platinum certification with 103 points, the highest score in Montreal and the second best in the province.

McGill University Health Centre [MUHC] For its $2 billion redevelopment project, the McGill University Health Centre [MUHC] decided early in the planning process to pursue LEED-NC certification. This was based on the MUHC’s desire to create a world-class healing environment for patients, family members, and staff, while minimizing environmental impacts and operating costs. It went on to become the first hospital in Quebec to achieve LEED-NC Gold certification. The 2.66 million square-foot facility, which was built with Groupe infrastructure santé McGill [comprising SNC-Lavalin and Innisfree] in a public-private partnership agreement, includes the Montreal Children’s Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal Chest Institute, Cedars Cancer Centre and the Research Institute of the MUHC. Being an academic health centre with regional responsibilities for pandemics and disasters, many infrastructure redundancies were required by the Ministries of Health and Public Safety, significantly adding to the already complex design and construction processes. Nonetheless, the project achieved 35% greater energy efficiency than the average Canadian hospital, resulting in approximately $2 million in annual savings and 40% less potable water usage than comparable buildings. The heat island effect is greatly attenuated through the use of white roofs, green spaces and underground parking. Dedicated healing gardens were created by planting 394 trees, 3,750 bushes, and 7,500 perennials; none of which require any landscape irrigation.

the Kwaysut building 2016
A partnership between British Columbia Management Housing Commission, the City of Vancouver, Pacific Community Resource Society and Vancouver Native Housing Society, the Kwayatsut building adds to the Cityâ€™s network of social and supportive housing project.
This 99 unit supportive housing development offers communal gathering and garden areas as well as a youth resource center and commercial retail units on the ground level. The building mechanical systems are designed to run full time on a DDC system. The primary heating/cooling demand is served by a central groundsource geothermal system providing temperature control through a combination of radiant slab, air to water heat pumps and hydronic heating/cooling coils. Radiant floor heating within each unit is controlled by local thermostats. Domestic Hot Water is preheated and distributed through the energy efficient boiler system. Electrical distribution is provided by a 12.5 kv/25kv single radiant primary raceway and lighting systems are fully automatic. Over 50% of non-roof impervious surfaces are made up of high albedo materials. Specific site exterior surfaces minimize storm water runoff, increasing on-site infiltration, eliminating pollution from storm water runoff and contaminants. Potable water used for irrigation has been reduced by more than 50% through high efficiency irrigation technology and drought tolerant plants. The developmentâ€™s water use reduction is 44.45% over baseline fixture performance requirements and 25% energy consumption reduction. As a green development, all five mandatory recyclables are stored and collected. Kwayatsut provides housing/supports for residents who have experienced homelessness or are at risk of homelessness.

Brampton Southwest Quadrant Renewal Plan [SWQRP] Brampton Southwest Quadrant Renewal Plan (SWQRP) was built by Cityzen/Dominus Development Group and is located at the corner of Queen Street West and George Street South in Brampton, Ontario. The project provided a significant effort by the City of Brampton to reinvest in its city in particular the downtown core, re-animating significant street frontages and creating a landmark civic facility. The 9-storey retail and office building primarily occupied by the City of Brampton includes over 11,000 square meters of office space, approximately 1300 square meters of retail and just over 16,000 square meters of parking. By including energy conservation measures in the design of the building and ensuring the proper operation of the equipment SWQRP has achieved significant energy savings. As such building energy performance is expectedly better than comparable non-LEED buildings due to the energy conservation measures taken including; energy recovery ventilators supplying a portion of the ventilation, condensing, modulating boilers and domestic hot water heaters, variable speed drive chiller plant, low-flow domestic hot water fixtures, variable speed drive pumps, high performance windows including hard low-e coating, argon filled gaps and warm-edge spacer resulting in reduced conduction, occupancy sensors controlling majority of lighting and daylighting in perimeter areas and process energy savings on parking garage lighting through reduction in lighting power density and sensor controls. All indications illustrating that the building has achieved its savings potential and is performing as designed. SWQRP not only created new and exciting civic open space but allowed for the expansion and centralization of the Civic administration housed in a LEED Gold certified sustainable facility.

City of Dryden The City of Dryden’s new wastewater treatment plant is now certified LEED® Silver, clearly demonstrating the City’s commitment to creating a sustainable and environmentally responsible community.
Contributing to the LEED® certification is an in-floor heating system that draws heat from the treated effluent, windows that are designed to maximize daylight giving employees the most natural light, as well as reducing electricity use. Light fixtures are outfitted with specialized sensors to gauge how much light to give off, and recycled water is used throughout the plant processes. These design features, and many others, were incorporated to ultimately save natural resources and significantly reduce operating costs. The plant’s creative design, however, doesn’t end with energy efficiency. The exterior was designed to look unique and
architecturally interesting—not a typical design goal for wastewater treatment plants. Odor is minimized by covering treatment tanks, rather than the common open-air design. Odor is further reduced using bio-filters. These elements create a pleasant scene for pedestrians and residents. Dryden is very proud as ‘The Wilderness City’ to showcase a LEED® certified structure that not only includes the building, but additionally the plant and processes. http://www.dryden.ca/

Great Gulf’s Active House Centennial Park
Inspired by Active House movement first pioneered in Europe, Great Gulf’s Active House Centennial Park is designed to improve the comfort and well-being of its occupants, while ensuring minimal negative impact to the environment. The house is a result of a highly process-driven approach to homebuilding, evaluated against stringent specifications for indoor comfort, energy efficiency, and environmental consideration.
More than anything, it is the strategic use of natural daylighting that defines the true character of Active House Centennial Park – in this home, little to no artificial lighting is required during the day. And that holds advantages beyond mere energy saving. Natural daylight has proven benefits to humans’ well-being, which includes boosting concentration, efficiency and mood. What’s more, the amount of natural light enjoyed inside Centennial Park can help improve sleeping patterns, by regulating the circadian rhythms of its occupants – something particularly important during the winter months when daylight is already in short supply. The ground-floor living room, dining area, and kitchen are laid out in an open plan with no barriers to obstruct daylight. Even the fireplace separating the dining and living room areas is see-through. Triple-glazed windows enhance thermal comfort, while carefully selected surfaces and colours further reflect light throughout the interior. Double-height spaces visually connect the main-level living areas with the upstairs spaces, such as the family room on the second floor. This strategy of maintaining strong visual connections also ensures a continual connection to the outdoors from almost every room in the home, without sacrificing privacy. The holistic design approach taken for Active House Centennial Park helps create not only a harmony of structure and systems within the home, but also a feeling of harmony throughout the home. There’s just something about clean air, natural, ample space and a thoughtful layout that helps calm the mind and sustain the spirit. In short: people love living here. And as the first certified Active House in the world, this truly is a home that gives more than it takes.
