Reaching the highest level of LEED certification, Platinum, is an exceptional achievement. The Angus eco-district project is marked by its integrated design process. In addition to creating jobs, providing affordable housing and offering new public spaces, the project focuses on diversity, densification and creating ecological infrastructures.
The development plan for the eco-district was designed in partnership with the multidisciplinary firm Provencher_Roy, NIP Paysage, Vinci Consultants and Pageau Morel & Associates.
2-22 is the second new building in downtown Montreal to receive LEED certification. It received Silver certification for the ecological landscaping of the site and the efficient management of water, energy and materials.
The double-skin facade acts as a thermal regulator and the white roof helps reduce heat islands. The building's energy efficiency means that there is a 40% reduction in water use and a 38% reduction in energy use.
The project included a plan for the management of residual materials, which helped divert 92% of construction residues from entering landfills.
Recyc-Québec awarded SDA ICI ON RECYCLE! certification (performance level) for Technopôle Angus’s waste management plan in 2008 and renewed it in 2011. Over 85% of the waste generated by Technopôle operations is kept out of landfills through recycling, composting, and waste recovery initiatives.
All Technopôle Angus buildings managed by SDA are certified BOMA BESt in recognition of their excellence in green building management practices.
In 2008, Technopôle Angus’s master plan proudly bore LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) Gold certification, awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. This certification recognizes Technopôle Angus’s commitment to forward-thinking urban planning and eco-responsible leadership with measures like foot paths, easily accessible public transit, strong community ties, and its signature “work, live, play” concept—all built on a foundation of green building design. Technopôle Angus is the first development in Canada to be certified LEED-ND, and only the second outside the U.S. (after Beijing’s Olympic Village).
