Bayer Commitment to Sustainability in Canada

160 Quarry Park Boulevard SE Calgary, Alberta

This 2,600 m_ commercial interior fit-out project is focused on creating a healthy and sustainable space for Bayer CropScience employees in Calgary. Located in Calgary's Quarry Park, the base building has excellent access to transit and has taken steps to manage stormwater, control light pollution and efficiently use water. The tenant fit-out will build on these sustainable features with energy efficient lighting design, HVAC design, appliances, and computers throughout. Perhaps most importantly, the design and construction of this office space will provide the highest levels of health and comfort for occupant. The project is using low-emitting materials, highly controllable lighting systems, and ongoing monitoring of the indoor environment (from construction through to occupancy).(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

Carruthers Marsh Pavilion

55 Ashbury Boulevard Ajax, Ontario

Located at the south-east corner of Ashbury Boulevard and Audley Road South, this community Pavilion has been designed to complement the character of the surrounding residential neighbourhood and to integrate into the 4.26 acre waterfront park. Targeted as a LEED® Certified building, many 'green'ù initiatives have been incorporated to make the building healthier for the user, energy efficient and sustainable; reducing future operating and maintenance costs for the Town. The building itself will be constructed using products with low VOC's to eliminate off-gas toxins and materials with high recycled content. Due to its location along the waterfront trail, the pavilion offers ample bicycle parking and will be fully accessible to public transportation. Priority parking will also be provided for hybrid and carpool / vanpool vehicles. The building program will include washrooms, concession stand and a Community Room. Through the use of a Geothermal heat pump system, heat recovery from exhaust air and energy-efficient lighting with occupancy sensor control it is projected that the new Waterfront East Pavilion will save 215,000 MJ of energy annually contributing to a reduction of over 30,000kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year. This is equal to the amount of CO2 consumed by 530 trees annually. Water consumption has been reduced over 40% with the use of water efficient fixtures and a rainwater harvesting cistern system for natural landscape irrigation. It is projected that over 500,000 litres of water will be saved annually. Amongst the many 'green' initiatives, the Town has also identified the new community Pavilion as one of three locations integrated into the 2009 / 2010 Waterfront Recycling Program, with a targeted diversion rate of 1,000 kg's of recyclables annually. The focus for this recycling campaign will be on single use beverage containers and paper products. Overall, the new Ajax Waterfront East Pavilion will assist in promoting a healthy lifestyle within the community, preserve and enhance natural landscapes and waterfront vistas and will respond to the need for quality community space.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

Ojibway Nature Centre

5200 Matchette Rd Windsor, Ontario

The new building will replace the 35 year old, undersized centre, and be designed to meet the growing needs of the community. Our goal is to achieve a LEED Silver certification (or better)and eventually become a self-sustaining facility. The new nature centre will be constructed on the 250 ha Ojibway Prairie Provincial Nature Reserve, a very popular distination for birders, naturalists and families alike, located on the west side of the City of Windsor. The new facility will be twice the floor area of the current building and will include 150 m2 of display/ interpretive area, 2 classrooms (126 m2) and a covered terrace. Movable partitions will allow for greater flexibility of occupancy and event planning. The use of recycled building materials, energy efficient lighting & mechanical systems and use of a high performance glazing system are a few examples to be incorporated into the building program. A large portion of the roof (approx. 650 m2) will be planted with sedum and native species. A rain water and grey water management system will be in place. The projected building is located in a Designated Natural Heritage site and construction of the stated building is a permitted complimentary facility as to the Windsor Official Plan and approved by the Windsor City Council.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

People's Food Co-op

Portland, OR

In 1970, People's Food Co-op (generally called People's) set up shop in a building nearly one hundred years old that previously hosted a neighborhood grocery. The goal was to set the standard for sustainable groceries. Twenty-five years later, growing membership and an increasing customer base rendered the meager and dimly lit 2,400-square-foot space a liability to retail and office operations. To alleviate these constraints, People's renovated their existing space and grew the building to 5,400 square feet, incorporating innovative sustainable features along the way. The total project cost was approximately $900,000. From start to finish, the People's expansion demonstrates the value of viewing buildings holistically and executing integrated design processes. **This building was originally imported from the U.S. Department of Energy Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Building Technologies Database (http://eere.buildinggreen.com/overview.cfm?projectid=223) on 2009-06-06.

Way Station

Frederick, MD

The directors and staff of Way Station think of their building as a "clubhouse" — a place where "members" with long-term mental illnesses voluntarily come for clinical treatment and rehabilitation, and to take advantage of opportunities to work and socialize with other members and staff. The building is located in the heart of the Frederick Historic District, and is designed to complement the neighborhood. It is organized around a central light court with a large garden where the primary building circulation occurs. **This building was originally imported from the U.S. Department of Energy Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Building Technologies Database (http://eere.buildinggreen.com/overview.cfm?projectid=214) on 2009-06-06.
