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. While attending the conference we had the opportunity to tour the double Platinum (LEED NC and LEED EBOM) certified Vancouver Convention Centre, where we were given special access to the 6 acre living roof, and the black-water treatment plant, both not normally accessible to the public. The tour and conference left us inspired and motivated to bring back what we learned to Manitoba, reinvigorated to pursue sustainable stewardship in our own projects.
