Medical product manufacturer's facility earns LEED platinum
Global medical product manufacturer priMED Medical Products Inc. (priMED) has achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) platinum certification for its priMED Mosaic Centre.
The priMED Mosaic Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is touted as the world’s northernmost net-zero energy commercial building, according to a release. Envisioned and pioneered by Christy Benoit and Dennis Cuku, designed by Manasc Isaac and built by Chandos Construction, the center opened in the Edmonton neighborhood of Summerside in February 2015.
In August 2017, Christy and Dennis sold the building to priMED Medical Products.
“The LEED platinum certification is one of many commitments priMED is making to ensure environmental sustainability of its products and services, as well as to our staff,” said David Welsh, president and CEO of priMED. “This is a one-of-a-kind facility and we are eager to cohabit this bright, fresh-air, positive energy environment with all of our tenants.”
In addition to its water efficiency, material selection and innovative design, the priMED Mosaic Centre includes multi-media conference rooms, huddle spaces, a 12m Living Wall, restaurant, daycare, spa, electric vehicle charging stations, an exterior garden and courtyard — all designed to provide optimal working conditions and facilitate a sense of community among tenants and visitors.
