13650 102nd Ave Surrey, BC

13650 102nd Ave. Surrey, British Columbia

The proposed development is on a corner site located in the CBD area of the City of Surrey. The site is conveniently accessible by private vehicle and public transportation (bus and sky-train). The development comprises a single storey commercial building providing office and retail space of approximately 1,130 and 300 sm respectively. Parking is provided on-site in excess of the bylaw requirements. The new building is positioned at the road intersection corner of the site. This stems from the requirement to achieve at the same time the most efficient site and parking layout, façade visibility to the street and direct sidewalk access for the tenants and general public. The building's appearance is intended to be contemporary, clearly expressing its functions and structure. Construction type and materials are chosen for reasons of performance, quality, sustainability and durability (e.g. steel frame and decking, tilt-up concrete wall, curtain wall glazing, thermoplastic roofing membrane, polyiso insulation, FSC wood). Energy efficiency is pursued in the use of geothermal energy for the mechanical heating and cooling systems, the use of energy efficient electrical fixtures, daylight lighting control, improved envelope design and insulation, reduced glazing and sun shading. The latter is addressed through recessed windows and cedar wood-slatted sunscreens to the critical facades. Other implementations of note in the pursuance of a LEED Gold certification are landscape maximization, heat island effect reduction, bio-swale filtration and the use of water efficient plumbing fixtures.

Allwest Furnishings Showroom and Offices

14325 - 112 Avenue Edmonton, Alberta

Allwest Commercial Furnishings Office and Showroom Allwest Commercial Furnishings is one of Alberta's largest contract furnishing companies specializing in providing innovative solutions for the office environment. They have been leaders in the business furniture industry since 1974. Allwest also has a strong commitment to Canadian manufacturers; blending this commitment with their clients' needs. One of Allwest's major Canadian manufacturing partners, Teknion, is a strong proponent of sustainable design and LEED. Teknion is a leader in sustainable furnishings and have registered their headquarters in Toronto with LEED-EB (US). They are actively working towards registering two showrooms for LEED-CI (Canada) and asked Allwest to also pursue LEED certification for their showroom in Alberta. Allwest's existing office space is 6,000 square feet, and the new showroom will be 7,000 square feet making the entire project 13,000 square feet. The architectural portion of the expansion was already underway when the decision to apply for LEED was made. Therefore LEED-CI was chosen over LEED-NC. The tenant improvements were already being dealt with as a separate project to the architectural expansion when LEED was adopted. The timing was great as the tenant improvements were just starting to be designed. The design approach was to develop a building that reflects the quality and beauty of the furniture Allwest sells within the framework of sustainable building with a mandate of achieving LEED-CI certification in Canada. Project goals include the desire to reduce consumption and wastage of materials, energy and water; maximize savings in ongoing operating costs; maximize comfort and safety of building occupants; and act as a leader in sustainable initiatives for the commercial furnishing industry in Alberta. Technologies applied include the development of high quality, low toxicity interior finishes, efficient lighting fixtures and controls, water efficient plumbing fixtures, and flexible interior spaces with the use of movable wall systems.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

BMW Group Canada Head Office Richmond Hill Ontario

10171 Leslie St. Richmond Hill, Ontario

The underlying strategy behind the design of the new headquarters for BMW Group Canada is to create a building that reflects the forward thinking philosophy of the client. The building has been designed to mirror the corporate image of BMW and to confirm its commitment to its employees and the neighboring community. &Co was retained by BMW Canada to develop their new headquarters project north of Toronto. After crafting a specification document for a turn-key facility &Co worked with Urbacon to design a building that features state-of-the-art systems and technologies that will contribute to achieving LEED® certification while providing dramatically reduced initial tenant fitup, furniture, ongoing operating and churn costs. The building is a response to new and critically important business requirements to: - increase human comfort - acknowledge green value - provide maximum flexibility - build the corporate brand The main facade faces a major highway (404) and it is designed to reflect BMW's stellar reputation for performance, innovative design and quality. Human Comfort is the primary driver of our approach as it enhances staff satisfaction. Overall comfort increases productivity and reduces staff absenteeism and turnover. Human comfort can be measured by air quality, temperature, noise and lighting. The building is designed to maximize human comfort without additional cost by creating: - measurably better interior air quality through increased levels of individual control over temperature - a reduction of glare from both external natural and internal artificial light sources using automated controls and indirect lighting - Increased natural light penetration into the workplace environment - higher exposed reflective concrete ceilings that make the work environment feel warmer and more open than conventional office spaces The Work& business environment facilitates change rather than constrains it. The BMW building is designed to maximize flexibility without additional cost by: - reducing the cost of future cable upgrades by up to 75% - increasing usable floor space as a percentage of gross area by 15% - 20% - allowing for a large uninterrupted planning space as compared to a centre core type building Workplaces using BTP supply conditioned air to every individual occupant in the building allowing individuals to control the temperature in their own space. Private offices and meeting rooms are temperature regulated with motorized dampers and individual thermostats with manual override for total comfort and control. All in-floor air diffusers are easily relocated for added comfort and allow for almost instant reconfiguration. The manual diffusers are not connected to duct work or mechanical equipment and can be located as required to provide maximum comfort and convenience. The BMW Building features indirect lighting using all standard energy efficient T5 fluorescent in-line fixtures. Indirect lighting provides a glare-free and even distribution of light throughout the space with far less need to move or adjust light fixtures to suit the tenant's program. This allows for ongoing flexibility with reduced costs in both energy and churn. In addition, the elimination of glare is beneficial to all occupants resulting in less eye strain, better comfort and higher productivity. Augmenting the high-output and high-efficiency artificial lighting is access to a maximum level of natural light. The buildings feature vision glass from the floor to the underside of the ceiling. When adequate light levels are achieved at the perimeter of the building, light sensors automatically turn off artificial light within the affected zone and further energy savings are realized. All cabling will be installed within the floor plenum and is easily accessible through the floor system and in-floor flush distribution boxes. Each in-floor box can be configured as needed with combinations of power, voice and data outlets. These are fed from the floor back to the core telephone communications room and/or electrical room. The power distribution is a zone circuit approach providing one distribution in-floor panel per 30' x 30'ù structural bay that supports up to 16 separate circuits (more than one per person). Provided for individual circuits from each distribution box (four spare circuits) are 12 whips. Each whip is plug-and-play connected at the distribution box and to the underside of the air floor outlet boxes. All connections from the user side are covered when not in use, easily accessible, reconfigurable and simple to connect to. The in-floor cable system results in significant savings on the cost of systems furniture. Furniture panels can be simple without integrated wireways etc. As a result, furniture is less costly and far easier to reconfigure/relocate. The BMW building features a technologically advanced building envelope. Exterior sunshades protect the exterior skin from direct exposure to sunlight. This eliminates glare within the interior and substantially reduces solar heat gain,ù a crucial factor necessary with the large amount of exterior glazing. The upper surfaces of the sunshades, however, are treated with a reflective material which redirects the sunlight towards the ceiling within, and by extension into the inner areas of the floor. The sunshade is assisted by a light shelf constructed along the interior of the facade. The light shelf continues the plane of the sunshade further blocking direct glare and redirecting sunlight into the interior. It has been custom-designed for integration with the wall system to assist in the overall energy and lighting strategy. Like the lighting, sensors govern its position and maximum efficacy. Operable window units in the curtain wall are another innovation that adds another degree of flexibility in environmental response and human comfort.(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

Falling Brook Loft Residences

1210 Kingston Rd. Toronto, Ontario

Falling Brook is a proposed 6 storey mixed use residential/commercial condominium at the northwest corner of Fallingbrook and Kingston Road. Falling Brook has been designed to meet the City's urban intensification plan with sensitivity to the surrounding built form. The building terraces back as it goes up, blending into the existing residential fabric while maintaining a human scale at ground level. The terracing feature also provides all residential units with private roof terraces and the building orientation on the site means that all units either face the Lake or Blantyre Park. In addition to being extremely energy efficient, it is to be constructed in a manner sensitive to the natural environment, with attention given to recycling of demolition and construction waste, managing stormwater runoff, using local resources, supporting alternative transportation, and reducing heat island affects and CO2 emissions. The existing hydrocarbon contaminated site is being rehabilitated prior to the start of construction. The building incorporates an array of environmentally friendly features, from a passive green roof to abundant daylighting and low energy lighting, water efficient fixtures, individually controlled ultra high efficiency heating systems, environmentally safe low VOC emission building materials, superior thermal insulation and a host of building design features to minimize energy consumption, with ongoing monitoring to allow the residents to continue with the energy and conservation initiatives incorporated into the design.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

King's University College - Student Learning Centre

293 Epworth Avenue London, Ontario

The King's University College - Student Life Centre project consists of a new two-storey building to be located on the campus of King’s University College (a college of the University of Western Ontario) in London, Ontario. Site Development The site has been designed to take advantage of alternative modes of transportation, including public transit (bus lines), bicycle storage and showering facilities, as well as designated carpool parking spaces. The surrounding site has been designed to be low-maintenance and will make use of native and adaptive species to provide habitat, as well as enhance the visual appeal of the site. The roof and impervious surfaces onsite have been selected to minimize the urban heat-island effect. Water Efficiency The landscaping will be designed to eliminate potable water usage for irrigation by 100% through the selection of drought-tolerant/native species. Water will be conserved within the building through the use of water efficient fixtures for both flush and flow devices. A rainwater-harvesting cistern that will collect water from the roof to offset potable water that will be used to flush toilets and urinals. This will result in a total indoor potable water use reduction of over 46%. Energy Efficiency The building envelope assemblies, lighting systems, and HVAC systems and controls for this project have been designed and will be commissioned to reduce the energy consumption of the building. Key elements of this strategy shall include: • Energy Recovery on the Custom Air Handling Unit (AHU-101) • Reduced lighting power density throughout the facility and use of occupancy sensors. • Daylight harvesting strategies utilizing glazing coupled with daylight sensors. • A heating system combined with radiant floor heating and zonal • Reduced fan energy through a reduction in fan power (i.e. Total Static Pressure) • Use of demand controlled ventilation to reduce outdoor air during unoccupied periods In combination, these energy efficiency measures are anticipated to reduce annual energy cost by over 27+% compared to ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 Energy Efficiency Design of New Buildings. Materials The intent on this project is to maximize the use of locally manufactured and extracted materials, both to minimize the environmental impact of transportation, but also to support the local economy. Where possible, materials that contain high-recycled content. During construction, a waste management and recycling program will be implemented, and be carried through to operation of the facility. Indoor Environmental Quality During construction the contractor will be responsible for protecting materials and ductwork to ensure no contaminants, moisture or dust will adversely affect the building occupants. All materials that are installed within the indoor environment should contain low, or no volatile organic compounds (VOC) to mitigate the possibility of harmful contaminants off-gassing into the indoor air. Furthermore indoor air quality testing conducted prior to occupancy will confirm that the building has been constructed to an elevated occupant health standard. The windows shall be designed to provide an abundance of daylight and views for all regularly occupied areas with the exception of the auditorium which requires a controlled ambiance.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

Liu Institute for the Study of Global Issues

6476 North West Marine Dr (UBC) Vancouver, BC

The Liu Institute for the Study of Global Issues was the second green building to be built at the University of British Columbia's Point Grey Campus. It houses a one-storey seminar wing with conference rooms and reception area and a three-storey research wing with private offices, library and board rooms. The design process involved a daylong 'project alignment' workshop during which the design team identified 60 sustainable targets for the project. The Liu Institute was designed to be 55% more efficient than the Model National Energy Code. Passive ventilation and cooling, a high-performance building envelope, and energy modeling helped to attain this energy reduction goal. Effective daylight strategies, occupancy sensors and photosensors reduce lighting loads. In order to reduce site disturbance the Liu was built on the footprint of a decommissioned student residence (Pan-Hellenic House) and its former parking lot. Low flow plumbing fixtures reduce water consumption and native plant landscaping eliminates irrigation requirements. READ MORE

Mount Angel Abbey Center for Theological Studies

1 Abbey Drive Mt. Angel, OR

Mount Angel Abbey’s new Annunciation Center for Theological Studies completes the Benedictine teaching, retreat and worship center on the hill above Mount Angel, Oregon. With its expansive views of the Willamette Valley, and soaring, arched windows and ceilings, the building nurtures the contemplative study of God. Annunciation is the result of a close and dynamic collaboration between Mount Angel Abbey, SRG Partnership, SOLARC Architecture & Engineering, the University of Oregon’s Energy Studies in Buildings Laboratory (ESBL) and BetterBricks. The 21,600-square-foot building includes six classrooms and a boardroom in a single-story portion, and 25 faculty and administrative offices and student and faculty support spaces in a three-story portion. Classrooms are used primarily September through May, but the other spaces and offices are designed to be used year-round. The concept for Mount Angel started with data drawn from a study funded by BetterBricks of a high performance classroom innovation by ESBL, BOORA Architects and Solarc. SRG saw the findings and models and with the help of ESBL built a prototype to test and refine the design concepts for application at Mount Angel. The design innovation included a large central skylight with special integrated shading and light diffusion devices as well as optimum use of natural ventilation (see description below). The real key to success though was the willingness of the designers and owners to do the research and testing of multiple options to find the best, most cost-effective solution. The owners and design team chose challenging goals: to employ no mechanical cooling and provide 95 percent of the annual classroom lighting demand through daylighting. To achieve these goals, they designed synergistic daylighting, and passive heating, cooling and ventilation systems. As a result of this integrated design implementation, the energy analysis completed toward the end of the design identified the building to be 62 percent more energy efficient than Oregon Energy Code required at that time. These goals honor the Benedictine traditions of hospitality, fine craftsmanship and stewardship of the earth’s resources. READ MORE

North Building Reconstruction - Phase I

3359 Mississauga Road North Mississauga, Ontario

The intent for the North Building Reconstruction Phase I is to provide a high-quality learning environment while achieving a LEED Silver level of certification through the implementation of a comprehensive sustainability strategy that will include: Site Development In keeping with the university’s master plan restoration strategy, the designers are developing an approach to landscaping that will make use of native and drought-tolerant species. The design team is developing an approach to materials selection both on and around the building that will minimize the urban heat-island effect by increasing the reflectance. Water Efficiency The landscaping will reduce potable water usage by 100% by using drought-tolerant/native species that require no irrigation. Within the building, water-conserving fixtures such as low-consumption water closets and urinals and low-flow automatically controlled lavatory faucets will reduce indoor potable water usage. A rainwater harvesting system will collect rainwater from the roof, and store within a below-grade cistern. This water will be used to displace potable water for sewage conveyance and will reduce water usage by 45% compared to conventional buildings. Energy Efficiency The building envelope assemblies, lighting systems, and HVAC systems and controls for this project will be designed and commissioned to reduce the energy consumption of the building. A key part of this strategy will be the implementation of a ground source heat exchange system that will make use of a well field located below an adjacent playing field to reject and extract heat from on an annual basis. The energy efficiency measures are anticipated to reduce annual energy cost by over 35% compared to the Model National Energy Code for Buildings 1997. Materials The intent for the project is to select materials that contain a high level of recycled content (e.g. concrete, rebar/steel, drywall, etc.). Materials and products that are extracted/manufactured close to the site will also be given preference. All of the materials within the indoor environment will contain low or no volatile organic compounds (VOC) to protect the health of building occupants. Indoor Environmental Quality A key objective of this project is to provide a place for students to learn. To support this, the design is being developed to provide proper ventilation to all occupants in the most efficient way possible. Additionally, the lighting and climate control systems are being designed to facilitate centralized control while addressing the specific needs of the individual occupants. The air handling equipment will be equipped with high efficiency filters and will be monitored to ensure that proper levels of fresh air are provided to the lecture halls. The protection of the indoor air quality will be extended into the operation of the facility through the implementation of a green housekeeping program.(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

Penticton Aquatic Centre

Penticton, BC

The Penticton Aquatic Centre is targeting LEED Silver. Features, bike racks, FSC certified wood, the north facing glass allows for natural daylight which reduces energy costs, and over 20% of the building materials are local and recycled. Carbon dioxide monitoring and the use of low VOC (volatile organic compound) emitting sealants, paints, carpet and wood. Green cleaning products and procedures are used for housekeeping within the building, further promoting good indoor air quality. We’ve also reduced CFC and HCFC (chlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons) levels in the building’s systems, helping to protect the ozone layer. Overall, there is a 40% reduction in water use and, amazingly, the energy consumption of the enlarged centre and pool addition is actually less than the original Penticton Aquatic Centre. Energy savings are realized through heat recovery, efficient roof top units, reduced hot water consumption, lighting. From bike racks, to recycled materials to sophisticated systems that make the air easier to breath, the Penticton Aquatic Centre is a green building for everyone to enjoy. The roof of the addition uses light coloured materials to reduce the heat island effect associated with typical dark roofs which attract sunlight and cause higher temperatures. Durability of the building was a prime consideration throughout design and construction. This will help save money and environmental impact associated with maintenance and replacement of building components over the live of the building. 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.

PIC Office Building

220 Wall Street Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

The 220 Wall Street PIC Office Building is located within Saskatoon's historic Warehouse District, and is seeking LEED Gold Certification. As young Saskatoon was booming, this district was seen as the city’s hub, and was responsible for supplying various goods throughout Canada. The area saw great decline during the war years, and is now being reclaimed. The PIC Group’s goal for the new building is “efficient differentiation”: incorporating a unique, mixed use design while modeling environmental responsibility. The project team has incorporated a number of sustainable design elements to enhance the building’s efficiency and marketability. With a LEED Gold target, the PIC Office Building will be a landmark in Saskatoon’s Warehouse District. Because this project is an infill development in the developed downtown core, there are unique opportunities to successfully achieve LEED credits in a variety of categories. First, the building’s central location allows it to be in close proximity to amenities, transit routes, and bike lanes, contributing to the development density of the site. To encourage active/alternate modes of transportation, the building will house a hybrid vehicle plug in, dedicated carpool parking stalls, as well as covered bicycle racks, lockers and shower amenities for cyclists. With 100% covered parking, the site acts to reduce heat islands through the elimination of exposed asphalt. The site’s heat island effect is further reduced through the combined efforts of a vegetated roof and a white roof. In addition, office occupants will have the opportunity to enjoy the green roof feature with a roof top deck and exercise component. With increased ventilation, low-emitting materials and controllability of systems, the project team has taken steps to ensure that air quality performance is maximized. To further increase air quality, all windows are operable, providing fresh air to each occupied space throughout the building. The PIC Group was focused on creating an environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and productivity for staff and other building occupants. To achieve this goal, the team referred to LEED’s daylight and views credits, creating open spaces with an abundance of natural light and access to views of Saskatoon’s downtown. The building, in addition to providing a healthy environment, will meet a number of reductions through its structural design and selected systems. Mechanically, the proposed heating system will use a variable flow circulated glycol system heated with a high efficiency gas fired boiler. Structurally, the concrete, steel and brick structure is designed to provide thermal mass, providing a resistance against temperature fluctuations. This will reduce the pressure on heating and cooling systems, and provide a reduction in energy use. Electrically, the building will feature occupancy sensors for lighting throughout the building. The influx of natural light is intended to further reduce the use of unnecessary lighting throughout the day. In terms of water reduction strategies, low flow fixtures will be employed, along with hands free, solar powered faucets.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

Salt Building

85 West 1st Avenue Vancouver, BC

KEY SUSTAINABILITY FEATURES Heritage preservation: re-use of materials Natural ventilation and lighting Neighbourhood Energy Utility (NEU) Locally and regionally-sourced building materials Community health and resilience through adaptive design The Salt Building is an iconic historical landmark in the new Southeast False Creek (SEFC) neighbourhood, which is home to the Olympic Athletes’ Village. It is located on First Avenue and Manitoba Street, at the former shoreline of False Creek. Built in the 1930s when the shoreline bristled with ship builders, steel fabricators and sawmills, the Salt Building embodies the legacy of the rich industrial past of this neighbourhood. Originally, the building was used as a refinery of salt, which was shipped from San Francisco. The north end of the building retains a small dock-like structure where the salt was loaded and unloaded. As railway transportation gradually replaced shipping, the building reoriented to the south and was later converted to a paper recycling plant. It is now owned by the City of Vancouver, and in 2011 a new bakery, coffee shop and brewpub will make the historic Salt Building an important gathering place for the local community. The rehabilitation of the Salt Building, initiated in 2007, presented a rare opportunity to integrate the concepts of adaptive reuse and heritage conservation, in the context of sustainable practices, as identified by the LEED Core and Shell (CS) system.  As a result, the Salt Building is one of very few heritage projects to achieve Gold certification under LEED – CS in Canada. The rehabilitation included shell restoration and raising the building on piling extensions to align with the new street level. This also served to highlight the original exposed timber piles on which the building rests, providing a sense of layered history of the site. Its large, open interior, supported by elaborate roof trusses, creates a unique amenity for the community. The Salt Building meets LEED Gold requirements by utilizing natural ventilation and lighting, a Neighbourhood Energy Utility (NEU), and the reuse of materials. READ MORE

Seattle Justice Center

Seattle, WA

The Seattle Justice Center is 14-story building within the three-block Civic Center area of downtown Seattle. The Justice Center houses Seattle's municipal courts and police headquarters in a dense urban setting. The design challenge was to create distinct and unique identities for the courts and the police headquarters within one building. The combination of programs yielded a structure with two different parts: a primarily glass Courts portion that occupies the southern part of the block and a primarily stone Police portion on the northern part. The bipartite nature of the building is also reflected in the organization of the Civic Center Master Plan; both building and urban design are inextricably linked. **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=225) on 2009-06-06.

Sokol Blosser Winery Barrel Aging Cellar

Dundee, OR

The Sokol Blosser Winery's gentle slopes face south and east to capture the earliest rays of the sun, the well-drained clay-loam soil gives the vines just enough vigor, and the temperate climate is ideal for cool-weather Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes. Because Sokol Blosser looks at their vineyard as a small ecosystem, they farm the land organically and seek biodiversity at all levels, from microbes in the soil and insects in the wildflowers to native birds, which control the insect populations. **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=262) on 2009-06-06.

The Barn at Fallingwater

Mill Run, PA

The Barn at Fallingwater is an adaptive reuse of a 19th century heavy-timber barn and its 20th century addition, framed in dimension lumber. The 19th century structure is a bank barn, built into the side of a hill so that two levels can be accessed directly from grade level. It serves as an interpretive portal for the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy's 5,000-acre Bear Run nature reserve, immediately adjacent to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. Beyond meeting the Conservancy's need for a program center and administrative office space, the Barn provides a living reminder of a largely vanished agrarian way of life in Western Pennsylvania. It manifests the Conservancy's mission statement: "Saving the places we care about by connecting people to the natural world." **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=453) on 2009-06-06.

Tournament Capital Centre Fieldhouse

910 McGill Road Kamloops, British Columbia

The fieldhouse is the crown jewel of the Kamloops Tournament Capital Facilities Program being constructed at the Hillside site. It will be the central facility at the site, not only providing for sporting activities within the fieldhouse itself, but also providing support facilities for the new 1,000-seat outdoor, international quality, field sport stadium. The Fieldhouse includes a national championship level indoor track & field facility with a synthetic surfaced 200 metre indoor track and indoor field event facilities. The field events facilities include a state of the art indoor throws training facility, pole vault, long jump, and triple jump pits. Within the infield of the running track are three basketball courts and several volleyball and badminton courts. Two of the courts have championship hardwood surfaces and one court has a synthetic surface. Around the main competition court will be seating for 2,000 basketball and volleyball fans to enjoy University, provincial, and national tournaments. The seating can be configured for either a court championship match or for a track & field meet. These courts can also host a national championship gymnastics meet. A full service gymnastics centre is attached to the main fieldhouse space. This centre will not only meet the needs of local gymnastic clubs, but it will also provide the facilities needed to give local gymnasts the opportunity to excel on the national and international stage. The support spaces for the fieldhouse include change facilities (including team rooms), washroom facilities, athlete lounges, coaching offices, lease, and storage spaces. A number of the change rooms can be configured for two football change rooms or four to eight soccer or other field sport change rooms. These change rooms have a very high utility as they service both the indoor fieldhouse and the outdoor playing fields and track & field facility. The indoor track next to the outdoor track and the availability of a large number of change rooms and support spaces will make this facility the preferred site for future indoor and outdoor provincial and national track and field championships. Geothermal ground source heat pumps will take advantage of the relatively constant temperature of the soil and provide a heat source and heat sink for the building's mechanical system. The geothermal field has been installed below the adjacent outdoor track complex, taking advantage of the running track's construction to lower the installation. A simple payback of 5.25 years is projected. Another key mechanism driving the design of the facility is the desire to provide open, bright, and lively public areas. The spaces that have been created are both intimate yet flexible enough to allow for small groups, large gatherings, or public functions of several thousands of people. The building's atmosphere is enhanced by the introduction of natural daylight to the building's interior through energy efficient glazing. The use of daylight will further reduce the energy needs and costs for lighting. The design of the natural daylighting system has been carefully considered so that the light, while providing a pleasant environment for general users, does not interfere with high-level athletic training and competition. Athletics Canada has rewarded the City for building these facilities by designating Kamloops as a High Performance Centre of Excellence for track & field. This facility will be of uncommon quality and will attract major tournaments in such diverse sports as track & field, basketball, volleyball, badminton, gymnastics, soccer, football, and other field sports. While providing all of these opportunities for all age groups and all skill levels, the facility will also operate in an environmentally sensitive manner and at lower costs.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

Warman Middle Years School

Warman Cresecent & Clubhouse Boulevard Warman, Saskatchewan

The Warman Middle years school is the construction of a new 7000 square meter school in Warman, Saskatchewan. The school is looking to achieve a LEED silver designation under the LEED 2009 rating system. The school is being developed by the Prairie Spirit School division for students in grades 4-8. The building itself is connected to the Warman Sport and Cultural Village, which is currently in construction. This adjoining facility consists of an arena, combined gymnasium and indoor soccer facilities, a fitness area, and multi-purpose space available to the community. Combining these amenities with the library and theatre space planned for the school will make this combined facility one that the entire community will benefit from. An integrated facility of this type gives many good opportunities to design sustainably. This starts with the heating and cooling within the school. The heat created from the ice plant will be used to heat the school, cutting down a great deal of the natural gas requirements. The ice plant has also been sized to provide the school with cooling, making the central plant singular and very efficient. Using these technologies, along with lighting strategies such as occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting will allow the school to achieve many of the Optimize Energy Performance credits. Beating the MNECB by 50% is a baseline target for this project. Warman is a small town of about 5000 people. This makes it difficult to achieve higher weighted sustainable sites credits such as Public Transportation Access or Development Density. Therefore, the project team went to great lengths to ensure many of the other sustainable sites credits were achieved. The team limited the amount of hard surfacing on the school site. The intent is to use shading along with high SRI hard surface materials to achieve the heat island effect: non-roof credit. This is achievable because the school worked out an agreement with the town to use the parking provided for the sport and cultural village. Reducing the amount of site required for parking will also allow the project to achieve credits for site development, and the addition of retention ponds will allow for the achievement of the stormwater design credits. In any school design, it is highly recommended to each project team that indoor air quality credits are pursued whenever possible. The project team feels that it is important to give students and staff the best possible place to learn and work. This will be the case in the Warman Middle Years School. Currently 14 of the 15 credits are being targeted for achievement.(summary imported from CAGBC database. remove this message if edited) READ MORE

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.

Whitman-Hanson School

Whitman, MA

Whitman-Hanson has many "smart building" features, such as HVAC systems that detect the number of occupants and adjust HVAC settings. This project incorporates more sensors and controls than the average school building, and requires less human intervention. Other "smart building" technologies include interactive electronic white boards for the classrooms and video broadcasting. The building was constructed to alleviate overcrowding at the old facility. The new building has been designed to use 39% less energy than a baseline building, equating to estimated savings of up to $100,000 per year in operation costs. **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=358) on 2009-06-06.
