Formed in 2002 the Canada Green Building Council has dedicated its efforts to advance green building and sustainable community development.
UFV has committed to making its new Chilliwack campus at Canada Education Park and the new SUS building here in Abbotsford LEED approved... but what exactly does that mean?
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system recognized by over 132 countries around the world. It ensures that buildings are environmentally compatible while still providing a healthy work environment. It accomplished this by using recycled contruction material and energy efficient appliances and it is becoming more common that new projects not only be approved for zoning, but also for environmental impact.
