Prairie Architects had the privilege of attending the CaGBC’s Building Lasting Change conference last week, May 28-31, 2019 in beautiful Vancouver, B.C. At the conference we were honoured to receive the Green Building Excellence - Tenant Improvement award, a prestigious recognition of our commitment to sustainability for our own office design, which is certified LEED CI Platinum, Manitoba’s first LEED v.4 CI Platinum project. Prior to the conference Building Blocks on Balmoral at Great West Life was also awarded the Canadian Green Building Award - Institutional [Small] Award by SABMag, also certified LEED Platinum.
We are thrilled to share that Prairie Architects New Office space is officially Manitoba’s first Commercial Interiors LEED v4 Platinum certified project! This marks Prairie’s 26th LEED certified building and our 4th LEED Platinum project out of only 10 Platinum projects throughout Canada. Prairie’s values are expressed through our workspace design and we recognize the importance our office plays in its direct impact on the environment. Thank you to all who have contributed in achieving this successful milestone with us!
