Lease Accomodation - Environment Canada

H. Bradford Green Architect Inc was retained by Bruno’s Contracting Ltd. to design the new lease accommodation for Environment Canada in Thunder Bay. The LEED Silver compliant facility consists of 608 s.m. of office space, attached 605 s.m. repair garage and a 241 s.m. detached cold storage building.

The site has 7 visitor’s parking stalls, including 2 barrier-free, 8 carpool stalls and an additional 19 stalls, including one barrier-free within the secure compound. Landscaped islands are incorporated to reduce the heat island effect. The rear of the site is landscaped to provide a large snow storage area, which drains into the adjacent storm water retention pond. A raised catch basin controls drainage of the pond into the municipal storm water system.

Some of the design features contributing to the LEED Silver Certification included a solar reflective TPO membrane roofing, which contained 15% post-industrial recycled content; concrete brick and block, which qualified for regional materials credits with respect to both manufacturing and supply of raw materials; reflective coated glazing; FSC certified lumber, gypsum board with 4% post-consumer and 92% pre-consumer recycled content, linoleum flooring with 35 % pre-consumer recycled content, carpet with minimum 30% pre-consumer recycled content in the face fibre, minimum 10% post consumer recycled content in the backing, low VOC water based coatings, low VOC adhesives.
