TPSGC D'ESTIMAUVILLE - LEED-NC, Gold certificationD’ESTIMAUVILLE, QUÉBEC, CANADA
This project, currently under consideration for LEED-NC Gold certification, is truly the eco design model of the future. The new Public Works and Government Services Canada building in D’Estimauville is intended to strike a balance between occupants’ well-being, efficient resource management and environmental responsibility. Responsible solutions were used throughout the project, beginning with an ecological worksite where over 97% of the construction debris was diverted from landfills and cleanliness was controlled right up to the building’s occupation. Fifty per cent of water savings comes from low-flow plumbing appliances, rainwater collection basins and the absence of irrigation systems. Reusing heat recovered from the server room means that the building does not have to be heated until the outdoor temperature reaches -12 °C. High performance roofs reduce energy consumption by 52%. Abundant windows, eco friendly materials, air quality and alternative transportation accessibility help make for an environmentally sound project.
