CLSC Benny Farm - LEED-NC Silver CertificationMontréal, Québec, Canada
Ædifica has partnered with Bisson Fortin et associés to develop an environmental framework for LEED certification of the new Benny Farm CLSC project, spearheaded by Société québécoise de infrastructure (SQI). A Silver-level LEED-NC certification has been granted to the building, which measures 6,000+ square meters over four floors and meets some of the most advanced environmental standards. The environmentally-sound development includes optimized construction waste management, geothermal energy and heat recovery systems, a white roof to reduce urban heat island effects and the use of recycled materials, natural lighting and water saving equipment. Annual energy savings are expected to reach 40%. The green strategy will contribute to the well-being of Benny Farm CLSC personnel year after year, and will serve to enhance the consumer experience.
