22 23 A LEEDing community continued from page 20 By striving for LEED-ND certification with our projects, we ensure that Canadian communities are at the forefront of global standards in both environmental sustainability and urban design. - Mark Laroche, CaGBC Board Member Commercial Drive is impossible to replicate, such neighbourhoods have numerous features that, with careful planning and design, could be incorporated into many new neighbourhood developments. Dan Leeming, Co-Chair of the Canadian LEED-ND Core Committee, and Principal at The Planning Partnership in Toronto, agrees that these new ACPs offer Canadians added accessibility to a rating system that will defi ne the future of green building. « LEED-ND is a valuable tool for evaluating and guiding sustainable neighbourhood planning and design, and as a committee it was important tous to make this tool as accessible to all parts of Canada as possible, » he says. Tate’s new In-Floor Active Chilled Beam offers benefits you can really stand on. Increased energy efficiency, improved perimeter aesthetics, less equipment and ductwork and easy access for maintenance. It provides all the benefits and savings of an overhead system without the threat of damage from condensation or leaking water lines. Our in-floor beam works with underfloor air distribution to provide an efficient perimeter solution while maintaining the benefits of stratified airflow and personal comfort control. 877 999 8283 581116_Tate.indd 22 ■ ARCHITECTURE 1 CANADA 3/30/12 1:17:51 PM These new ACPs especially benefi t Canadian projects that are building with the LEED-ND rating system as a guideline right now. In Montreal, for example, there is a LEED- ND project called « Les Bassins du Nouveau Havre » – a 23-acre infill redevelopment project located close to downtown, along the Lachine Canal. This mixed-use development will include both market-rate and affordable dwelling units, with a focus on units large enough for families with children. The location and design of the project encourages modes of transportation other than the automobile, while construction will be according to LEED-ND criteria for green infrastructure and buildings. Mark Laroche, President and CEO of Canada Lands Co. (which owns the land for Les Bassins du Nouveau Havre) and a CaGBC Board Member, says LEED-ND is a great system to use as a basis for undertaking these types of community developments. « We have found LEED-ND to be an excellent measuring stick for the sustainability of our projects, » he says. « It is also a very practical tool for producing a high quality neighbourhood design. By striving for LEED-ND certifi cation with our projects, we ensure that Canadian communities are at the forefront of global standards in both environmental sustainability and urban design. » The CaGBC will delve even further into the idea of sustainability at the community level at its annual Conference & Expo, taking place this year from June 11-13 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The conference theme of Beyond Buildings : The Green City is driving events and education sessions to get to the core of where green building is headed. The program will emphasize the implementation of sustainable design and operations on a grander scale than any one individual project. As the largest green building event in Canada each year, the CaGBC National Conference brings together over 1,000 attendees and a 100+ booth expo, making it the premier spot for accessing the latest in green building and sustainability trends, ideas and education.
