Green Buildings, What Are They?

LEED Building, Passive House and Net-Zero 

A Green building is a sustainable and environmentally friendly building.  To deserve the green building status, care about the sustainable construction details should be given from the design stage, all the way through the construction process, to the occupation stage, until the end of the life cycle of the building. 

 Therefore, green construction projects do not only involve using green products, but also taking into consideration the land situation, the potential orientation of the building, the efficiency of the construction process, and the education of the occupants of the building on how to operate it efficiently.  Those are just a few examples of what contributes to a sustainable building.  
 
LEED, Passive House, and other green building standards are simply third party standards that ensure your building has met these criteria and can be certified as a green building.  To learn more about green buildings and sustainable construction strategies, please check our services to see how we can help you achieve your green building goals .
  

Are these standards achievable in cold climates like in Canada?

The short answer to this question is yes.  Despite the extreme cold weather in cities like Montreal, Ottawa and Kingston, a careful design that takes into account the possible passive heating and cooling of the building and attention to details during construction will make it possible to achieve the strictest standards in green buildings.   To learn more how we can help you achieve these standards please visit our Services page.
