TECHNOPÔLE ANGUS - LEED-ND Gold CertificationMONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC, CANADA
The five-hectare urban project that now makes up Technopôle Angus required a complete redevelopment of the site so that it could employ workers again and become a part of the community’s social fabric. Advanced environmental criteria were defined by Ædifica during the design of the six buildings, including: sustainable deconstruction and construction, construction waste management, and the use of recyclable and renewable materials, as well as a passive solar wall, efficient building envelope and sunbreak system. The plan included bicycle access and a reduction in parking area to create more green space, which is not watered or fertilized using chemicals. In January 2008, Technopôle Angus received the first LEED-ND (neighbourhood development) gold certification in Canada.
