Attention to energy efficiency allows for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and the Owner’s operating and maintenance costs. Currently, we have the following major projects targeting or having achieved LEED® certification with a particular focus on energy efficiency to achieve Gold certification level. We were also the owner’s representative for two additional design-build projects in Revelstoke that both achieved LEED Gold.
Passive House (Passivhaus) buildings consume up to 90 percent less heating and cooling energy than conventional buildings.
