The winners of the 10th annual Canadian Green Building Awards, a program hosted by Sustainable Architecture & Building [SABMag] in collaboration with the Canada Green Building Council, represent some of the best examples of sustainable, high-performance building design in Canada. Projects were awarded in nine categories and can be seen here: http://www.sabmagazine.com/winners2017.html
The massive Marine Gateway in Vancouver has all the components of a complete community, whereas the De Waal House in Edmonton is designed for net zero energy. The LEED Platinum Amber Trails Community School in Winnipeg shows how design can extend the reach of a school, while Eva’s Phoenix, a converted warehouse in Toronto, creates a supportive community for at-risk youth.
Queen Richmond Centre West in Toronto demonstrates adaptive re-use of heritage buildings, while the restoration of the Sir John A. Macdonald Building in Ottawa integrates new building systems into historic architectural elements. Also in Toronto, River City Phase 1 and 2 addresses the challenges of living sustainably within a dense urban environment, while the Lockport Beach House on the Nova Scotia coast offers an alternative view of ‘touching the Earth lightly’. And finally, the Gare Fluviale, a ferry terminal in Lévis, Québec, makes an elegant experience for two million passengers per year.
