Manitoba marks LEED certification milestone

July 14, 2017

Manitoba recently marked a LEED milestone. The Canadian province has completed 100 certified projects.

Totaling 601,753 square meters of space, the certifications represent Manitoba's greenest and most sustainable buildings, with 72 certifications in Winnipeg, six in Brandon and the remaining 22 projects spread across the province, reports Daily Commercial News.

The honor of the 100th project went to Stantec's new Winnipeg office, which earned LEED gold for commercial Interiors certification on June 27.

The 55,000-square-foot office space amalgamates the company's many office locations into one central spot in the city and incorporated various green design measures to achieve a construction waste diversion of 91.33 percent, a 36.7 percent reduction in installed lighting power density over ASHRAE 90.1-2004, and a reduction of 61.43 percent over baseline for water fixture performance, according to a release issued by the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC).

Manitoba’s 100 LEED certified projects include 16 certified, 41 silver, 34 gold and nine platinum. Rating system types are broken down as 72 new construction or core and shell projects, six commercial interiors projects, five existing building certifications and 17 homes projects, with a total of 50 residential units.

Throughout the years, there have been a number of significant milestones for LEED in Manitoba.

These include:

-- LEED platinum Amber Trails Community School, which recently won a 2017 CaGBC Green Building Excellence Award. Located in a new neighborhood in North Winnipeg, Amber Trails has achieved more than 50 percent reduction in water use, and energy savings of 65 percent in energy cost and 68 percent in energy use;

-- Sir Sam Steele project, a gold-certified group of affordable homes built by Habitat for Humanity and designed by Manitoba company ft3, which is saving residents up to 30 percent in energy and water costs each year;

-- The 17-story office tower at 220 Portage Ave. in Winnipeg, which earned LEED Platinum for existing building certification in 2013 and showcases how an older building could be retrofitted to maximize performance and efficiency; and

Manitoba Hydro Place, which when it was certified platinum in 2012, was Canada's largest office tower and was one of the first in Canada to be designed as climatically responsive.

In addition to certifications, there are an additional 121 projects registered with the intention to certify, which total more than 800,000 square meters of space.
